New PS3 Slim Model (CECH-4000 / CECH-4001x) Registered at FCC


Sponsored Links
142w ago - Today Japanese site PocketNews (linked above) reports a new PS3 Slim model (CECH-4000 / CECH-4001x) has been spotted registered on the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) site.

While there is little information on the new SKU, the FCC ID is listed as AK8CBEH19C1 and rumors suggest the new PlayStation 3 model may feature a top-loading disc tray similar to the one on the PS2 Slim.

El33tOnline.com also points out that PS3 Firmware 4.20 slightly changed the wording on the XMB from 'Eject Disc' to 'Remove Disc' when you press Triangle to bring up a disc-based game's option menu.. stating, "Sony released a PS2 Super Slim in 2008 that featured an internal power supply and was lighter than the original Slim model."

To quote, roughly translated: "You think AK8CBEH19C1 is FCC ID, so CECH-4001x model number in North America, and appeared in the model number called CECH-4000B or CECH-4000A in the country.

From a position to paste the nameplate has been published, the shape of the body as a CECH-3000 of the current model is so different.

I hate cheesy so becomes at once when the design was a top-loading or in the cost down.

Below are pictures from the PDF files of the CECH-4001x label location, CECH-3000 model label the current location and CECHA00 first model label location.

Note the image is for the confirmation of the position and label body shape, size comparison can not be so disparate body size for each model."

Product Name:

  • CECH-4001x*1 - Computer Entertainment System
  • DECH-4000Ax*1 - Debugging Station
  • DECH-S4000Ax*1 - Debugging Station for AV test

*1: It will be replaced by an alphabet denoting the different hard disk specification.
*2: The difference between DECH-4000Ax and CECH-4001x is software only.
*3: DECH-S4000Ax and DECH-4000Ax is same in specification, but DECH-S4000Ax is for AV test.

Finally, according to Develop-Online.net, it is also reported that Sony could unveil the new super slim PS3 model at German games industry consumer event Gamescom next month, however, as usual Sony has declined to comment.

I kinda like the window mod look on top. Hope they release a swap loader like the PS2. The footprint makes it easier to stash somewhere. Should be

I love the top loading disk tray and the design overall. I think this is how they should've done the PS3 Slim to begin with!

So for "security reasons" they have removed the bluray drive and all LEDs and what else have they removed or made extremely cheap?
This looks as bad as the last PSP.

So Sony are going from a nice looking 60GB unit to ugly and cheap as crap console.
Cant wait to see the Vita slim...
