New PS3 Model (CECH-4000) Registered on FCC
PS3 Super Slim
I still have the original 60gb backwards compatible fat PS3 but in light of the almost certainty of no backwards compatibility on PS4 it might be a good idea to get this model and put it away with the PS3 games collection for safekeeping
It's like you read my mind. Still running on a 60fat... time to save the future !
Lucky you guys, my 60gig died :(
My 6 years old 60GB fat is still running very well:) Although I had to clean bluray laser twice in lifetime.
This totally makes sense. With the Wii U dropping this holiday season & the $99 Xbox 360out there.... a $200 PS3 Super Slim Model & SCEI campaign for younger games on the way(according to SCEE Jim Ryan) Sony has a good chance of giving a good fight on the price point numbers game.
man i wish i still had my 60gb one
My 60fat has been on at least 6hrs a day since I got it at launch! All ive done is clean the vents!
I'm a new sony gamer... My uncle just gave me his like new PS3 FAT 40GB... Getting anew tv screen today just to play it...
my fat BC 80gig died and i brought it back to life for $150 cuz i loved it so much.
I have a fat 80GB and a slim 160GB. My fat just had its 3rd YLOD and my warranty is up. I'm not sure what to do with it. I think I'm just going to wait and pick up this super slim version.
I used the hell out of my 60gb. One of the first launch 400,000 made (came with Talledega Nights Blu Ray). YLOD once ... had it repaired and YLOD again. I still have it in my Man Cave. I love that thing ... and miss it so! The 60gb launch PS3's were incredible.
Lucky): My 80GB BC model died on me a few months back. Still working on getting it fixed though.
I got my 60gig masterpiece sometime June 2007 and 4 years later it dies in june 2011... I managed to fix the YLOD, worked for about a month and died again. I strongly believe that the fix process was fine, what might caused the problem again is the actual huge fan heat sink component. I guess it stopped doing its job, so even if I fix it it will die again and again :( I was surprised, that my friends and I who owned the monster died around the same time mine died. Could be but a mere coincidence? :O In my opinion, the slim model is butt ugly. I really miss the big glossy black box with the chrome line and the shiny text that says... PLAYSTATION 3 and the traditional rotating PS logo for vertical and horizontal orientation. I think I will plug the 60gig PS3 to make its red LED light up and show it off next to the TV and hide the slim behind it.
I gotta upgrade my 160 model HDD. had to delete content to be able to play MLB12 the show. wonder how much this will be and what sizes the HDD will come in.
Have you never thought of just upgrading the HDD? It would be so much cheaper
@LolololRumz yeah, but if this new slim model isnt that expensive i might as well just get it. I've looked into just upgrading my HDD, but its gonna be around $100 anyway cause i'd like a 500gb hdd.
I got a 500gb HDD from newegg.com for only $50 with free shipping for my 40gb fat PS3.
If they make it smaller (the sides, not how thin), I might upgrade. The ps3 I have doesn't have BC but it's still a model that uses a LOT of electricity.
Well, if this gets announce at Gamescom for $199 I suggest buying it because the PS3 can do a lot with quality exclusives and at $199 if its announce is a sweet deal. I'll end up buying it as well to replace my 120GB PS3 Slim 2009 model.
yup i just put a 500 in my slim, now il buy that new model too.
I hope so. Though, I'd call it "PS3 Slim^2"
Idk, I think of it as a remodel so they could lower their price on it. I wonder how small this one is going to be lol.
ALT+253 Ps3 Slim²
Don't get your hopes too high, It's probably just the SAME ps3 slim with some newer/cheaper hardware parts so they can drop the price again this year.
I'm with you guys, I boxed up my 60 fat when before they pushed the patch blocking the "other" OS. One of the few "pure" 60 fats left...
Yes,seem FAT model
Hope it has 2 extra usb ports in front and one in the back for the playstation eye. A memory card slot reader and a more premium design would be great as well (chrome trim and lettering, touch sensitive buttons, more or better led indicators). I'd be willing to pay more for a PS3 that looks like the ps3 phat, except slimmer. The slim just doesn't shine like the phat does, I want to be able to see my reflection on my ps3 like I can with the phat :)
I always wished there was a USB port at the back, not a big fan of wires coming from every direction lol.
+2x in back... 2x in front is enough... Love my card readers : D
I still have mine! I put a 500gb HDD in though.
Yea... same HDD in mine : D Made a hole in the bottom of mine to stop the noise :L
wondering if this is a new redesign slimmer version or just a new model of the ps3, hmm.
7/3/2012 data available..is that one with the monitor on it
I hope it has a flip up lid. I love those retro style disc players.
Well I already have a slim that works just fine. I won't be buying another ps3 just for the super slim. "A fool and his money are soon parted."
i hear from work this is a £99 ps3
Where do you work?
£99? No way, perhaps £159 but not that cheap.
no way. I just spent £160 like a week ago ffs! Ill be raging knew I should of waited!
That would be hilarious...though I feel bad for you
Thank god I waited...come on PS3 fat just last a little longer.
Dang, that's $150 cheaper than the Ps Vita..
This adds more weight to the likelyhood that the renamed "remove disc" option being related to a new model with a flip up disc drive.
I think it's just gonna be a HDD upgrade, not gonna get my hopes up on a new remodelled system
I doubt that due to it saying CECH4000, usually a bigger hard drive would lead to something like a CECH3007 etc (not sure what revision they're on at the minute), each time the PS3 has had a somewhat major internal change the X000 series has changed :) i.e my FAT was a 1000 series and my SLIM is a 2000 series :) I believe the 3000 series were the revised motherboards that didn't allow FW downgrading below a certain point (due to the 3.55 CFW)
the latest slims are 3000 series... but i still think this one is a completly new model.
Fair enough, I didn't know what the other models were, that's cleared it up, thanks. Who knows what it's gonna be till we actually see something from SONY, sick of these rumours.
There are two distinctly different models of Slims. One model has LEDs behind the power and eject buttons and the newer (cheaper) version does not. Wiki for comparison of all the models: http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
maybe they added more ram to stop freezes that would be nice and i also think that remove disc hints towards flip up disc tray that would save them money on production and let them put it out very cheap. they want all the people who still havnt moved from ps2 to join and i bet theres a few million of them across the world in poorer countries.
Is it not slim enough? We won't be able to fit DVDs in it. :(
it's about internal hardware masked as a new slim model.
Wouldn't it be great if Sony was smart and added more ram into there new model. It would be the smartest thing they could do. Then Sony would own the 3rd party games with the smoothest frame rates and better resolution. I hope someone at Sony thought of this and makes it happen.
I can not find a face palm big enough for your comment. So Sony should release a new model with more ram and have developers make new games with the extra ram in mind....So lets say KZ4 was made with the extra RAM added and I only own the old PS3 model, does that mean I wont be able to play KZ4 unless I buy another PS3. Also dont give that crap about developers can make 2 version of the game becuase that would cost extra money and no one wants to play the crappier version.
If Sony gave the ps3 more ram they wouldn't need a ps4. Also the only thing that would possibly work for the older models is to sell an add on if you want the better games everyone would buy it and Sony would sell a ton because every one will pay for an add on of ram to there existing ps3 rathere than buy a whole new console.
I'm actually not that down on that comment. No, titles shouldn't be made using the new 4000 requirements if they included more RAM, but wouldn't it be nice if the system just ran older stuff more smoothly? Yeah, I know - that would be stonking hard to do, but I'd love to see a PC-esque RAM lift that would just do that.
It would be the same thing the PC owners would have to do. If their Computer can't handle the game....UPGRADE!
The CPU and GPU have probably been shrunk again to reduce power and heat. Maybe they will finally add Wifi N too
Wifi? It is is in all PS3's except for the 20 gig non-wifi model. been in since the start Fossil... hehe... Fossil EDIT: ...lol just saw the "N" in your comment lol....Tapewurm....hehe ...Tapewurm...Wifi N would be nice :) I was tired gimme a break.
looks like the wireless card is still the same, I was hoping for 802.11 b/g/n, but its showing that its still just b/g. But I'am curious to see how much slimmer they can make it, if thats the case.
I doubt this is a super slim. Sony has already slimmed down the PS3. This is more likely a normal hardware improvement with added production savings. Which means imminent price drop. =)
Do we really need another version?!
If's it's cheaper then the current slim, then that's a big 10-4 good buddy.
who cares what you need? sony are doing this to bring down production costs.
does it have ps4 inside? oh don't care then it's 2012!
@Ramon No, WE probably don't need another version, I have an original phat and a slim version. But seeing as this is probably a cost saving exercise, to increase Sony's profit on each unit sold, or to give the option of offering a cheaper model to consumers, then this is a Sony requirement. Sony isn't just here to tend to your needs, try seeing things from other points of view rather than just your own.
I think this will be the final model of the PS3 like they did with the PS2. What they need to do is get rid of all the other models and just stick to one standard. @sandman it would not be smart to add more ram at this point because it would force people to buy updated models, and that would piss people off and you would loose your loyality base.
doesnt even take me to a website. just some random data sheet crapness. with no ps3 in sight.meh
Then click on one of those data sheets and look at why they say it's a new model derp.
Did you guys even read the pdfs? The only things that they talked about were the WLAN, Bluetooth, and wireless. They might have just upgraded the networking hardware.
