I read in a greek site that Sony changed the Laser-eye in the newer models of PS3, due to its high failure rate. The older models had one eye for all formats (CD/DVD/Blu-Ray) and the newer has an eye for CD/DVD and a different one for Blu-Ray.

If this is true, is there anyway to know if my PS3 has the newer eye without opening the PS3? Maybe from the serial?

This is the old laser-eye...

...and this is the new.

These photos are taken from a greek site.

So, if these are true, does anyone know how to distinguish the new from the old?
