New Sony PlayStation 3 CECH-3001A hits the FCC

Today, a mysterious FCC filing by Sony revealed a new version of the Sony PlayStation 3 with the model numbers CECH-3001A/B. This appears to be a new generation of the PlayStation 3, given that the original PS3 and PS3 Slim were part of the CECH 2xxx series. (PS3, Sony, Tag Invalid, Tech)

Hope it has got a new protection for Hack and never HACKABLE..

It surprises me they embedded the FULL debug mode in each machines firmware anyway. Practically speaking, why did't they simply have an embedded hardware locked executable on the USB with per-unit unique key's - or the key itself was enabled directly by a dedicated debug station, and loaded per machine? Those 15 extra lines of code would have made this entire adventure in custom firmware, hacking, and piracy -- nonexistent.

One unlocking/enabling USB key for 50 million machines and activates/disables protection on every single one of them? Someones fired, and it's not me!

Using some USB key glitch was just SLOPPY on Sony's part. While it maintained protecton for 4 years, the implementation still reads as sloppy to me.

I'm hoping the new PS3 is cheaper and hack proof, and the new hypervisor has extensible robotic arms to reach out and throttle any hacker as they sheepishly swear they are just installing homebrew.

KillZone_3-Hacked_Stolen_Pira ted.ISO is homebrew...right?

Cheaper, slimmer, more hack-proof version? >:D

Hopefully this one doesn't allow full debug mode.

''However, Sony has not provide any information about the new device, or how it will differ from older PS3 models.''

Should be interesting to know what will have.

Im hoping they change it to wireless N
iamnsuperman  +   1376d ago
That is my main problem with the PS3.
DarkBlood  +   1376d ago
as to not be a noob next time, im going to ask you what is wrong with what the ps3 have now?

He wishes it had 802.11n apparently.
Tru_Blu  +   1375d ago
I'd buy one and replace my 80gb in a heartbeat if it does have N.

Super slim?
RememberThe357  +   1376d ago
I was just thinking that.

Are we getting a slimmer slim?
Rynx  +   1376d ago
The PS2 I believe went through 2 slimmer models. The second one not differentiating much from the first slim.

I would get this new model if it brings back BC.
DOMination  +   1375d ago
The current ps3 was never marketed as a slimline model. I believe this one will. Like the psone and pstwo this one will take the power supply out of the console and move it to a brick style lead much like the 360.
madjedi  +   1375d ago
Hell no i don't a frankenstein power brick on the outside, like the 360 does that's one feature you 360 guys can keep exclusive.

A = Slimer PS3 320 GB Hard drive
B = Slimer PS3 500 GB Hard drive


Stop whining about PSN all. You don't want hackers to have your information visit retail store and never buy DLC from PSN/XBL. Retail is vastly more safe than digital networks. This is only one lesson. I blame Anonymous for this attack on Sony. Why? well without his public threats on Sony other hacker or hackers wouldn't have felt comfortable attacking a company like Sony. So that blame would fall instantly on first subject.

v1c1ous  +   1376d ago
they removed one of the USBs and some sound options...

i kid i kid :D
undercovrr  +   1376d ago
I wouldn't be surprised if they did.
khamvongsa09  +   1376d ago
I think this model would actually add more USB ports and maybe wireless N? Hopefully more slimmer then the "slim" PS3...
UnSelf  +   1376d ago
The Playstation Ultimate?

where every playstation exclusive game comes pre-equiped on its 100 TB drive, with automatic access to every sequel released from Sony hence forth?

Can anyone else think of anymore awesome features for the PS Ultimate?

There was one which was suppose to come equipped with a 500gb hard drive and a built in wireless N. But don't know exactly what happened to that model. http://www.mcvuk.com/news/3...

Most likely just redesigned internal hardware to make the cost of manufacturing cheaper.
prodg52  +   1376d ago
Return of the EMOTION ENGINE!
xtreampro_REVENGE!  +   1376d ago
Hopefully it's sleeker and slimmer than the current PS3-Slim.
Convas  +   1376d ago
LOL ... I JUST bought a PS3 Slim. You've got to be kidding me ...
Ilikegames76  +   1375d ago
Me too. If it's better than the current PS3 slim, I might buy one.
GoldPS3  +   1376d ago
I remember typing a comment in another article saying that Sony should make a slimmer version of the slim before they come out with the PS4. I guess my prediction could be right.

It's Probably a new more price build friendly version of the PS3 to make it possible for Sony to give the PS3 a price cut.
Raider69  +   1376d ago
A cheaper model in time for the new Nintendo?
joeorc  +   1376d ago
time to
phase out current CFW friendly PS3 for new HARDWARE security changed SKU with extra Anti- CFW Security to go right along with the NEW increased security PSN network.

PSN trap their network hack, Take Down REVIEW old PSN server intrusive Data. change SKU with new off trade in program for old SKU to the consumer for a better PS3.

one could dream right?
nevin1  +   1376d ago
slimmer version than the current ps3 slim.
Manibi97  +   1375d ago
Probably has some more security and a few small enhancements. It might be slimmer and cheaper hopefully.
jizzyjones  +   1375d ago
Sony an MS have new SKU's very year this is nothing new. Sony were rumoured to be making a new SKU to be less hackable an including wireless-N for a while.
madjedi  +   1375d ago
If nothing else replace the hdmi version 1.3 with 1.4 for better 3d for movies/games, not the resolution but the 1.4 hdmi has a higher bandwidth, than 1.3 hdmi. A larger hdd sounds reasonable as well.
