    New PS3 Slim Retail and Debug Models Surface Pre-E3 via FCC

    It's been awhile since the last PlayStation 3 FCC Reveal, but today the sleuths at Engadget.com (linked above) have uncovered new PS3 Slim Retail and PS3 Debug models via FCC just before E3 arrives.

    To quote: "PlayStation 3 models CECH-2501A and CECH-2501B are both certified for 802.11b/g WiFi and Bluetooth 2.0+EDR differing only in hard disk drive configurations.

    We're also seeing a pair of PS3 DECH-2500A and DECH-S2500A debugging stations - interesting since a debug unit is typically only required when there's been a change in the chips on the motherboard. Feel free to speculate as we prepare for E3 to kick off on June 15th."

    Umm - new "antihacking" measures or just cutting further down the cost? Interresting indeed ...

    My bet is that the 2500 models are the same as the 2000 models but with a move controller bundled in.

    Oh, and maybe a pair of red-green 3D glasses...

    Either they changed whats in the packaging (Move, HDMI cable etc.) or further refining of the system board to cut costs.
