New release could be announced at Gamescom, according to reports
Sony is working on a new model for the PS3, a filing to the US Federal Communications Commission suggests.
As unearthed by NeoGAF, a potential new 4000 series – the CECH-4001x – could be yet another smaller and slimmer model of the current-gen console, following on from the previous PS3 Slim released in 2009.
Whilst Sony is widely believed to be working on a next-generation console the PS4, a cheaper PS3 could be seen as a way of tempting late adopters to purchase the system and increasing its lifespan.
It is reported that Sony could unveil the new super slim model at German games industry consumer event Gamescom next month.
Sony has declined to comment.
