    A German retailer has confirmed through Facebook a new model of the PS3 being dubbed the Super Slim PS3. Besides a smaller casing it was said to come with 12GB of flash memory too. Sony's German PR chief denied knowing anything but the TGS may be the début unveiling.

    Only 12GB? That sounds like a serious downgrade in memory. :unsure:
    But then again, maybe they made up for it in some other feature.

    It looks like the original PS3, but only like 10% smaller.

    Sony's starting to take cues from Apple, I think.

    Why would anyone want that? With the way downloads/installs/updates are going, you'd barely be able to fit much of anything on there.

    I'm guessing this will be like PSP Street, a cheaper alternative to the original. =S

    That would be more like if they took online features/hardware away.

    Next one is going to be the Pocket PS3.

    They have that already. It's called the Vita.

    Play me off, Johnny!

    I'm sorry, but you got me lost. What are you talking about exactly?
    PSP Street or SS PS3?
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Same logic of 360 arcade, HDD tray is still there when you needs it. Nintendo did even worse.


    Yes, it is.

    A) Nothing's confirmed until Sony says.
    B) This is just like the Xbox Arcade. It's for people who don't want to be big on gaming, and instead want more of just a blu-ray/netflix/hulu/media player, but also want to be able to play some cheap games like the Mini's or games like Flower, or hell even classic PSX games.

    You forgot the DSi XL. And I just consider 3: PS3 Fat, Slim and Super Slim.
