Sony preparing even slimmer PS3 model
Rumor has it that Sony will reveal a new, even smaller PS3 model in August. The idea is that they could cut costs and drop the price further on the console.
This rumor spurs from new documents with the FCC that identifies a PS3 model that isn’t labled CECH-3000 like recent models but instead is CECH-4001.
Last year in August Sony dropped the PS3’s price from $299 to $249.
If Sony is serious about moving PS3 units before the impending PS4 release in 2013 then a $199 price point would be good for them. I’m not a fan of the slim designs of the 360 and PS3 because I miss the days when redesigned smaller versions of consoles were as tiny as the PS One or PS2 Slim. Let’s hope this one ends up true.
