SCEE confirmed to PSNow! that the new 40GB model will have a matt finish instead of the regular glossy one we see on 60Gb and 80Gb units.
But the true surprise came when they told PS3Now! that the new 40GB will come in Satin Silver.
"Yes, the finish on the 40GB model is a satin silver whereas the 60GB has a shiny finish."
Is Sony hiding a Satin Silver PS3 from us? Or is this a simple mistake from a SCEE PR rep...?
