September 14, 2012 // 9:40 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."

Waste of money with PS4 coming around in a year or so, the top loading thing makes me feel nostalgic and is a neat idea. At the end of the day though, unless they provide something even better (top loading and a disc changer), I will have to pass.

Can't wait to see what features Sony removes from the Ps3 this time around. It wouldn't shock me if it didn't play Blu-ray movies or play games.

Top loading is an interesting concept - easier to swap disks, but it's not like that is really a necessity anymore. However removing most of the moving parts of disk intake / eject would be quite the cost saver. Couple that with an external PSU (aka, PS2 Slim) and things can be just that much lighter!

Really, a super slim 2 version? Don't remember that. Was that the one that came with the silver controller? Money spent on this may as well be saved unless the PS4 has no PS3 BC. Other option I can think of would be just to trade it in for some money to buy the PS4 if it does. I wonder what major "useful" features this PS3 will have -_-
