PS3 Slim CECH-2000B 250GB Model Uncovered at FCC Site

Today we uncovered a second PS3 Slim model CECH-2000B (not to be confused with the already known CECH-2000A 120GB model) on the FCC site that Sony tried to hide under a company called Sand Dollar Enterprise, Inc. of 1518 Ascension Drive in San Mateo CA.

Now, Sand Dollar Enterprise, Inc is represented by SCEA's General Council, Riley Russell... (PS3)

I hope this model will feature a Chrome finish instead of the Matt Finnish
darthv72  +   2202d ago
as in...
the current 120gb will be known as the "arcade" version and the bigger 250gb will be the pro.

I love the matte. Chrome is too finger-printy.
cool8  +   2202d ago
if this
is going for 299.99 (which it probably wont) it will be KILLER!
darthv72  +   2202d ago
most likely
going to come out at the higher $399 price point.
randomwiz  +   2202d ago
wow... $399 suddenly seems like so much to pay

Anyway, its probably the current "phat" 160gb w/ uncharted + pain

except this time I think its going to be 250gb w/ uncharted 2 + flower?? @399

I bought a 320gb from microcenter for $59.99 guess, it better come with something worth the extra $100?

@ThanatosDMC
Like a 360's HDD comes with more for the money?

I'm sure some rube is willing to pay someone else $40 to switch out PS3 HDD.

Heck, i would have gone into business doing it if I had thought of it sooner.

I say $349
A while after the current 160Gb has sold out.
PirateThom  +   2202d ago
If the 250GB SKU was $399, it might be one they use to bundle certain games, say Uncharted 2 or God of War 3 in the future.

I'm not saying this will happen, but the 160GB does come with a game packed in.
dragunrising  +   2202d ago
Why release 2 SKU's? A larger hard drive alone isn't enough incentive to get a 250 GB. If there is a game pack in and wireless N, I'm all over it.

Overall, I really like the look of the PS3 Slim. The matte finish took a minute to get used to, but already I want to sell my PS3 fat.
ThanatosDMC  +   2202d ago
OH! You're awesome to remind me that... i hope they fix the PS3 eating our bandwidths. I hope it just runs like how our computers do. Everytime im downloading something on the PS3 everything internet related slows down.
Sunny_D  +   2202d ago
If this is true, then Super_Secret was correct all along about the 120gb and 250gb slim ps3's. He sure was right in backing up his claim about in game cross chat not making it in F.W. 3.0 but might come before the end of the year.
ThanatosDMC  +   2202d ago
Yeah, i wonder what other inside scoops he has for us...
TheColbertinator  +   2202d ago
Yeah he was the real deal.I hope he comes to N4G again sometime
OgTheClever  +   2202d ago
He even talked about removing the ability to install another OS, which I didn't really believe at the time. Apparently he will appear in a few months elsewhere on the internet with a different name to reveal more Sony secrets...
saint_john_paul_ii  +   2202d ago
yup, he was very legit. thats why im not really worried about cross game audio chat anymore.

That guy pretty much nailed everything, the HDD configs of the slims, the fact there was only one feature removed, but he said cross game chat wouldn't be in the "next" update, it would be one before the end of the year.
LordMarius  +   2202d ago
Ah more rumors
Sarcasm  +   2202d ago
Rumor has it, the PS3 Slim will drop to $99 to compete with the 360 arcade!

Just kidding, I know. Rumors after rumors after rumors.

Especially since after this big one was finally put to rest, more pop up.
Mo0eY  +   2202d ago
And the bots looked to over their console, sank their heads, and sighed... again...

PS3 Slim
The Slim is actually going to sell for $299 along with the PS3 Fat, which will also sell for $299. Kaz said so in the conference.
mirroredderorrim  +   2202d ago
Hm. I will go out on limb and say they got a deal for HD's, so maybe they can sell it for just 50$ more?

It would be weird to price it at 349.99/359.99 while the 120 is 299.99.
Could they fix a pricing structure to compete with the entire Xbox 360 line?

I'd still replace it for a larger drive, so there would need to be something on that SKU that does not exist in the 120 gig variation.

Don't mind this hot-air, grab a balloon and fill it up if you find, there is nothing of enlightenment here. :B

Wow that's a beast.
Covenant  +   2202d ago
Probably to replace the current 160GB model. $399?
pure pwnage24  +   2202d ago
WOW TODAY HAS BEEN DEDICATED TO @SS WHOOPIN
250gbs? thats huge, last gen I would've never thought 250gbs would be used in a console.
but of course I won't leave out the bots (P.S 54% XD)
TiKiMaN1  +   2202d ago
Sounds like a Christmas Bundle to me.
Blasphemy  +   2202d ago
I wish Sony would just stick with one SKU.
Tony-A  +   2200d ago
@9
I don't. More options for the consumer, and now that the Slim is out, this will be the only SKU out there anyways (unless you count the 160GB LE) because they are phasing out the current 80GB.
