Documents have emerged that appear to show a new “super slim” version of the PlayStation 3.
"The documents were filed with the Federal Communications Commission and show a brand new PS3 design carrying a 4000 series label and a notably reduced size. Current “slim” models of the PS3 are designated as 3000.
Industry whispers suggest that the revamped console is set for an official unveiling at Gamescom this August.
Neither Microsoft or Sony has ever produced three different versions of one piece of hardware. Could the reduced production costs of a slimmer PS3 pave the way for a price cut? We’l have to see.
In fact, we’ll have to see if any of this turns out to be true at all. All eyes on Gamescom."
