September 14, 2012 // 11:40 pm - Following up on our previous PS3 Slim Model (CECH-4000 / CECH-4001x) and PS3 Slim (CECH-4000 / CECH-4011x) articles, today European site GameReactor (linked above) reports of a new 12 GB PS3 Slim console coming in October, 2012 according to a German online retailer.

While pricing isn't confirmed yet, the upgraded flash memory PlayStation 3 consoles are expected to cost slightly more than the current generation models. Below are the details, to quote:

"A German online retailer confirmed via Facebook that in October a new PS3 with 12GB of flash memory will appear. More information on the console has not been provided.

It was speculated long ago that Sony would release a new version of the PS3. Sources are indicating that this PS3 will possibly have an even smaller box than the PS Slim, meaning a new ultra-slimline design is on the way. We're also expecting a hike in price, although no figures are available.

Sony's German PR chief Guido Alt commented that he knew nothing of the existence of such a console, when questioned by Gamereactor. But with Tokyo Game Show just around the corner, and with Sony holding a press conference next Wednesday, we'll likely know more in the very near future."

Cheaper version of the PS3 from the looks of it. I'm estimating $200. There was a 20gb model among the launch phat consoles. It's no surprise this will be cheaper and focused more on security update perhaps.

16 GB HDD is simply nonsense - you can't even get drice of such small capacity anyway and even if you would they'll cost much more than common drives with capacities in range of hundreds GBs. So it's eihter a "typo" and should be really 160 GB or it will be a SSD drive / flash storage instead.

The 16gb model can actually be a few things.

1) It can be an attempt at a cloud based system.
2) The 16gb will be cheaper and more for people who have large hdds for their ps3 (what is the point on spending $300 on a ps3 with 250gb when you can get one for $200 and swap an already existing hdd into it?)
3) It is one of the biggest troll we've seen from Sony.

Rumor has it it is a 16GB SSD drive. Will also be available in 250GB and 500GB standard versions

My old old old ass PC's hard drive is even bigger than that (but not by much). It rings in a whopping 40gb hard drive (well 37.7gb), and the all powerful 256mb of ram. I don't want to wait an hour to turn it on to view the rest of the specs, but I will have you know, it was top of the line when it was first released. How Far We've Come.

16GB? Is that supposed to be built-in flash memory, because I haven't heard of an HDD that small in an eternity. The oldest part of my computer is my 500GB HDD from when dinosaurs roamed the earth.

Not much I guess, at least with the 4GB Xbox 360 you can use an external HDD to store game saves and XBL Games and demos. With a 16GB HDD and the possibility of no discs that would limit the amount of games you could have and games like Uncharted which is 20GB would have to be in 2 parts. The 4GB 360 still seems like the best console for price.
