    New design, should be a bit smaller than slim.

    The reason it went through ANATEL (A brazillian agency) is because of the Bluetooth and WiFi 802.11b/g support.

    CECH-4011A, CECH-4011B e CECH-4011C models will be shipped with 16, 250 and 500 gb of HD, respectively.

    I'm not exactly crazy about the scanline groove on it.
    It makes it look like an old VCR out of the 80s or something.

    Inside you, all around you
    it doesnt look thinner it looks still the same except for the new groove lines, only b/g wifi why no n, thats stupid and probably using bluetooth 2.1 when theres 3 and 4.0 which is the best

    Meh, I'll stick to my 60gb fat model. This new version could only remove more features.

    I don't know about the ridged grill on top, but it looks gorgeous from the front (where you'll be looking at it the most).

    I can tell they've ditched the mechanical disk tray for one. :O

    I don't really get why the top is ridged (or appears ridged). Maybe they're adding the washboard as an instrument to Guitar Hero/Rock Band type games and this doubles as a peripheral.

    But if it's a "budget PS3" then sign me up.

    Without a side by side comparison, or at least system measurements, it's hard to tell if this is a smaller model or not. I definitely want to say it's smaller than a Slim, but as of now, it's impossible to prove. At the very least, I want to say it's shorter.

    Edit: Why a 16GB model, though? I mean, the average mandatory game install is at least a couple of GB, and buying games from the PS store can start taking up memory fast. It's easy to fill up a 120GB slim with just a small game collection and a handful of purchases from the store. Maybe HDD's are even easier to swap in this model?

    My guess is that the right side of the grill is a cover that slides over to reveal the disk spindle. Or it could be a standard flip-up lid. Who knows?
    I'm intrigued. :creep:

    Looking at the source, the back-end looks the same too, no new ports or anything. What interests me is how half of the top looks to be recessed... either it's a very poorly produced unit or could this mean it's a top loader a la the slim PS2? I don't see an obvious disc drive anywhere.

    I thought the 16GB was a typo for 160 but nope, it really means 16GB. Maybe a low-end model for $199 or less?

    I was thinking flip top once I saw it. Kind of a throwback to what worked in their ever so popular slim PS2.

    I just thought of something:

    Recently, Sony purchased Gaikai, the game streaming service. Shortly after this is announced, we find out that a new PS3 model is coming out, with models going all the way down to 16GB, which as any PS3 owner knows, is a ridiculously small amount of memory for that system. That is, it's ridiculously small if you use a lot of physical discs and have to install game data. Is Sony maybe pushing the idea of game streaming for experimentation during this generation, or am I just speculating a little too hard?

    Edit: I'm simply trying to find a decent explanation for releasing a new model so late into this generation of consoles. There has to be something in or available for this model that isn't in others if they want to manage any sales. The only thing that comes to mind is a system perhaps optimized for game streaming. I mean, what else could Sony possibly offer at this point on the same PS3 hardware that they've been pushing for six years?

    I guess we'll just have to wait for the official announcement to really know whether or not this is even worth giving a passing glance to when you're out shopping.

    I've never owned a PS3, hell I haven't even seen one in real life, but this looks quite ugly.

    I stick with my hacked "500 gig" slim.
    I'm willing to bet current downgrade methods won't work on this.

    If it's cheap enough ($150 preferably), I'll get it. Ico+Colossus HD Collection and MGS4 interest me.

    The same reason Nintendo releases new Wii/3DS colours as well as why Microsoft released the 360 slim. To boost sales a bit with new hardware.
