"Sony have made it more aerodynamic for those hardcore gamers that chuck their PS3 console out of the window, now if you squint you can just make out the wings that pull out the sides and a parachute opening somewhere in the back. All PS3's now come with a distress signal that alerts nearby Sony drones of a possible chucking of their console".

 

Anyway I suppose the console does look sleaker and sexier. :smileyindifferent:

I think the new model PS3 (judging by the leaked pictures) looks awful. At least when the system comes out in late August/early September that Sony would also cut the price of the current slim. They done a similar price cut a few years ago with the original PS3 when the slim came out.

I'm happy with my 60gb original PS3 and FF13 Lightning Edition Slim.

Even if this new console comes out i just dont like the look of it atall, i would still choose the slim over that anyday even if it is slighty more expensive, i dont think they'll drop the price of the slim i just think they'll enter the super slim into the market at a slightly lower price than the slim

Larger HDD 500GB model will force the older 320 GB model down in price this is because the 3000 model will be OLD school then..

SCE will also likely stop production of 2500 - 3000 models to only build the 4000 models.

Indeed. But I think they already stopped the production of the 3000 series.

I'm a bit disappointed by these pictures. Not really about how it looks, but rather because it doesn't seem to be much smaller than the current slim. As far as I can see, the slim and this "super slim" have pretty much the same size. Infact, I think it looks like this "super slim" is even more wide than the slim.

Which makes me believe they may not been able to cut down the energy consumption as much as I had hoped (down to a PS2 slim level).

Power supply, BD drive and HDD can't be reduced in size much. So size can't go too small with out removing those components. 

 

Being a top loader for the BD drive. Would explain the New firmware choice to replace "eject" with "remove". This does reduce costs as there is no need for a BD system to eject the BD...

The lid would also replace the need for dust filter on the BD drive entrance.

16gb PS3? Good look playing Metal Gear Solid 4 or DC Universe on that. But if this super slim PS3 is real and the 16gb is real then I can see this PS3 sell a shed load at Christmas. If it is priced right at say £99.99.

I think someone said earlier in this thread that they are bringing this console out because there are still alot of people on the fence about buying a PS3 slim so they are hoping if they lower the price of the current slim and enter a new super slim into the market that it'll convince these people to buy one

I have never like the slim model it looks to square like for me. This new super slim looks better in my view. I like the lid design if its true. sony would have to look at £150 for the 16GB model to match the 4GB xbox. A lower price will be unlucky from what iv read. A £99 price would sale ***** loads over xmas.  Rumours are the 16GB will be ssd drive but i can't see it making a big different to speed as must games work off the standard 5400 rpm hdd. I would of love to see a updated play tv built in to the console as i watch more tv then playing games on my 80GB fat. The ps3 16GB price £150. The 250GB price £180 to replace the 160GB model. then the 500GB price £240 replace the 320GB model.

Wonder how cheap it will be. 

 

I presume it will be around the £150 mark considering you can pick up a new 160gb now for around £180.

Oh and those ridges on the top...:smileyindifferent: not a great fan of those.

This should be an actual size comparison:

 

 

I just want to know the prize (and if these rumors are even true), since my old PS3 broke few weeks ago and I'm now waiting for an announcement from Sony. I don't want to buy a slim and regret afterwards if this model gets released. 

 

I suppose they are trying to make it as cheap as possible by using new parts. 

Also, I actually like the design and it seems to be way smaller than the slim, excited! :smileyhappy:

I think on the whole it looks pretty slick, not too sure about the ridges on top though. I can't see from the pictures if the HDD and WIFI lights are still there, not that it's a big deal but I just wondered if anyone else can make it out?

just some cut and paste news...

"PS3-4000, the latest, slimmest version of Sony’s current console, will not be announced at the main Sony gamescom press conference on August 14, VG247 has been told.

A gamescom reveal had been planned, but stock levels of the current build are said to be too high for Sony to move onto what is probably the last take on PS3 before PlayStation 4 is announced next year.

In addition, a source today said that the rumoured 16Gb version of PS3-4000 is in fact real, and is based on Flash memory. There was some confusion surrounding the figure, which originated from Anatel, the Brazilian Agency of Telecommunications, with many assuming it was intended to read 160Gb.

The new model will stack up against Microsoft’s 4Gb Flash-based Xbox 360. As the 16Gb PS3-4000 will have a flip-lid disc input and low-capacity storage, we’ve been told today that the announcement “may” be accompanied by a huge price cut, with the entry version potentially dropping as low as £99.

We’ve since been told, however, that there are no plans for a £99 PS3."

In the USA the new 250Gb version cost $269. (€200)
Why can't we have a 250Gb version as well for €230?
