268w ago - After reports of two new PS3 Slim models hitting the FCC a few weeks back, today Andriasang.com (linked above) has uncovered news of yet another, lighter, PlayStation Slim model CECH-2100A on the way courtesy of a Japanese retailer.

The slight weight reduction from its current 3.2kg to 3.0kg will be indicated by a change in model number from CECH-2000A to the new CECH-2100A.

To quote: "It's presumable that, aside from just the weight, something else has changed inside the system. Sony often makes minor hardware adjustments, changing the model number in the process.

The retailer expects Sony's PS3 shipments to switch to the new version in March."

First point would be correct as cheaper ways are always found down the production road.

As for Greed, don't think so. It's more about cost of the product and what people are willing to buy/pay too. The PS2 is a very inexpensive console that gives those middle class and lower class families still something to play, a choice. Not to mention it is very common knowledge that Sony has or was giving away the PS3 for like the first 2 years at a loss per console to consumers.

Some from a business stand point, something has to make up for something else that's taking a hit. It's been a give or take and we, the consumer have been blessed at both ends of the situation. Sony has taken the loss for us that have either console. I for one have never had an issue just flipping the on power switch to either console if I wanted to ever play a game. Not a big deal.

they probably just changed the inner chassis to some thinner metal. I'd love to see a model with double the ram, they could have just added another line when the pricedrop came, with double ram and old price or so.

normally when 100 different models of the same thing keeps coming out usually means they found a way to make something better... same way with food drink medicine etc. but then again maybe it makes the population feel better

I really dont think there is much of a difference between the slim and fat so I would just stick with the fat cause it looks better. They complain about the dust/prints but that means you need to clean up more often.

Been waiting for more info on these new models before I bite the bullet and replace my YLOD'd/repaired 60GB with a slim.

Hopefully any changes to the design will be for the better.
