    New PS3 Models released to FCC
    Unhackable PS3 Models
    Sony has submitted filings with the FCC of a new revision of there Playstation 3 Console. The new revisions will carry the model numbers CECH-3001A and B, with DECH-3000A and DECH-S3000S being debugging models. Based on the recent FCC filings, speculation would say these recent models are most likely a new generation of "hack proof" PS3 consoles. Very little is currently revealed by the FCC filings. They both have been approved for Bluetooth 2.0+ and 802.11b/g as well as internal hard disk drives, with the A/B most likely representing different drive sizes.

    Unhackable, yeah, we'll see.

    Pfft. Isn't that what they did with the PSP? NOTHING is unhackable, the worst they could do it make the hacking process take a bit longer.

    Exactly. This is just throwing down the gauntlet to the hackers. Do yourselves a favour, Sony. Stop claiming your stuff is unhackable. At this point I'm starting to think the hackers are only hacking your stuff just to prove they can, like it's a matter of their hacker's honour or something.

    Sony needs to announce their stuff normally, they will never make an unhackable system.

    It's not Sony announcing unhackable consoles, just speculation

    that's probably their idea, but it's not what they said about it. Do they ever announce new models like that?

    It seems to me that this mess was started by Sony combating its own customers by constantly escalating attempts toward a 'hack proof' system. So instead of changing their ways, they'll keep doing the same thing and this time things will be different!

    If the main reason for this console revision is to combat hacking, it better damn well do it right, or this will be the end of Sony as a video game company.

    Here's hoping. They ruined the gaming industry with the original SNESCD PlayStation by making gaming "cool" and inventing "hardcore gamers".

    making a console is one part, whether the true pirates will actually buy them is a different issue... unless their ps3s were bricked with waninkoko (unintentional ofcourse)

    Long held views, not jumping on the bandwagon. Seriously believe it would be for the better.

    Here's a long held view by yours truly:

    The PSX was a better system than the N64. There, I said it. It sold 100 million units because it kicked ass.

    Odds are the system will be pretty identical to current Slim models, just with some changes to prevent hacking. I don't know what those would be, but they're there.
