Rumour: The PS3 To Become Slimmer?

Sony Rumours Playstation 3 News

A filing to the FCC has suggested that there may be a new Playstation 3 model in the works. The documents detail a new Playstation 3 model with a possible model number of 4000. The current series of Playstation 3 models are part of the 3000 series, which identifies a PS3 Slim model.The specific model number shown in the documents is CECH-4001x. According to Eurogamer, the x in the model number will be replaced with a character of the alphabet to identify hard disk specifications. This means that the model may be fitted with different hard drives, offering different numerical values in terms of space available.

If this new model is in fact in development, it will be the second revision of the Playstation 3, with the Slim version released in 2009. What should be noted is that Gamescom is in fact approaching and Sony has confirmed their appearance at the German event. It was at Gamescom that Sony revealed the current Slim Playstation 3 model, so it is no surprise that the event may be the reveal of the 2nd hardware revision.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!

    It will probably be of cheaper build quality as well as Sony don’t deliver on quality anymore. We already saw that with the Slim. They just want to make money to get out of their financial misery.
