REPORT: New Super-Slim PS3 On The Way?

An FCC filing has possibly outed plans for a new super-slim PS3.

Spotted by Pocket News, test documents reveal SCE's plans for a new model, branded CECH-4001x (the current slimline models are coded CECH-3000), with the unknown letter at the end denoting flexibility for varying hard drive specifications.

Eurogamer have reported that they've heard the plans are in place for a new super-slim PS3, which is set to be unveiled next month at Gamescom.

The speed that technology is moving at you could probably fit this in a phone by now.

What a waste of time and effort.

How many people have not bought the PS3 becayse it was to big? How many do you think Sony? 1000 people globally?

FFS.

If you are going to do something new and exciting that isn't the PS4 then turn this antiquated heap into a tablet and be done with it.

@dividebyzero by reducing size they reduce production costs and make it possible for new lower price points that is why they are doing it.

lol!

"If only the ps3 was an inch smaller I'd buy it because it'd fit perfectly under my tiny portable tv - which is of course ideal for high def gaming..."

@monkeylove Not always true... some components cost more to be smaller.

But if that is why they are doing it, fair enough. It's just sad is all.

Guess they were waiting till they saw what MS did at E3 and as they are not 720ing or whatever, then Sony can just sit on there **** and see how small they can make the PS3 instead of doing something interesting.

Lol @ above, loving the comments :). Just a way to try and get the last drips of money out of the current gen. WASD FTW. ;)

Is it definitely a new PS3 though? Could it be a new Vita SKU? e.g. with built-in memory, or trying to cash in on the 3DS's success by removing one of the thumbsticks?
