Rumors, like little boys’ dreams, can come true.

The PlayStation 3 Slim is real. Unveiled at Sony Computer Entertainment’s press conference in Cologne, the smaller hardware will see an early September release at all major retailers. The Slim model ships with a 120 GB hard drive, a Dual Shock 3 controller and an HDMI output. It’s priced at $299.99, which should give the hardware some extra steam come this holiday season (comparitively to the still $399 160 GB console).

The PS3 Slim has been rumored heavily. The first stirrings were in May, when a Chinese blog posted an image of the Slim’s smaller shell. Since then, retailers like Amazon and K-mart have listed the console at different times. Understandably, Sony never commented on the sleeker system, but c’mon, we all knew this was coming.

[Update 3: For more details and an image gallery, check out this post.]

[Update: Engadget appears to have an official image of the unit, which we can't confirm. But it sure is pretty. Check it after the jump.]

[Update 2: We now have all the images, including comparison shots. The Slim is pretty and tiny; confirmed.
