Re-vamped PS3 Slim console incoming

Gaming, Tech Digest news

ps3-slim.jpgSony are a matter of days away from revealing a new slimmed down version of their PlayStation 3 games console, according to a listing over on the Sony Japan website.

Sporting a new model number of CECH-3000B, the new PS3 is 400g lighter than the current Slim model at 2.6kg, and is more power efficient to boot, running at 200W compared to the last models 230W needs.

So far little is known as to what, if any, changes have been made to the console’s physical apperance, though reports are suggesting that the power and eject buttons will see changes made, with the possibility that the console’s LED lights may be removed altogether.

No word yet on whether we’ll see the re-vamped console hit UK stores, but it’s likely they’ll roll out around the world once current PS3 Slim shipments sell out.
