Sony Files New PlayStation 3 Model, Possible Reveal at Gamescom

Could Sony be readying a new super slim PS3 model? That certainly seems to be the case as the company has filed documents with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

Current PS3 versions are tagged with the 3000 series, while the new PS3 models will be labeled the 4000 series. The CECH-4001X model is mentioned and rumor has it that this pertains to a slimmer PS3 which will be revealed at this year’s Gamescom.

The new 4000 series model shows a new FCC label position and you can see it below.


Keep in mind that nothing’s official just yet. This supposed “super slim” announcement at Gamescom is just a rumor for now.  We’ll have to wait till August to see if this is the real deal or not.
