Over the weekend a set of images leaked of the rumoured new PS3 (codenamed ‘Super Slim’) that we reported on last week. What makes this leak more substantial is that Technoblog, a Portugese web site, posted a document from Sony Brasil that is used for certifications for three new PS3 models:
- CECH-4011A – 16GB hard drive
- CECH-4011B – 250GB, and
- CECH-4011C – 500GB
The new hardware has a new, though cheaper, look with what looks like a ridged sliding top panel.
G3AR picked up on a small change after the recent PS3 firmware update. Instead of ‘Eject Disc’ when pressing Triangle when on a disc icon it has now been replaced with ‘Remove Disc’. This small bit information leads us to believe that a mechanical part has been removed from the disc mechanism – making this leak all the more realistic.
Sony is yet to comment on anything but we expect them to announce more on this at Gamescom in the next few weeks.
