July 5, 2013 // 3:21 pm - Recently Kotaku (via Sang of RRA) reported news that a new PS3 SuperSlim Model CECH-4200 alongside it's Asia counterparts CECH-4205B and CECH-4205C are expected to arrive soon.

Below are the details, to quote: "In South Korea, Sony just filed for certification for two new PS3 models: CECH-4205B and CECH-4205C. As tipster Sang points out, these could be slightly modified versions of the "Super Slim PS3s" (model number CECH-4000, image above) with smaller nanometer architecture, less power consumption, and better cooling.

Earlier this month, new PS3 models also surfaced on a webpage for Japan's Minister of Internal Affairs and Communications. That listing was for "CECH-4200". The assumption is that the difference between "CECH-4200" and "CECH-4205" is regional for Japan and South Korea."

New PS3 SuperSlim Model CECH-4200 / CECH-4205 is Coming Soon

Most people who want a PS3 have PS3s already. They're just milking enthusiasts.

Your kidding me? You don't know what "good" hardware is. I use a tablet (Kindle Fire HD) mainly for Minecraft on the go and some other android games. I like the Kindle because its android (open source), and you dont have to pay for anything. Lol, Aptoide has all your apps you need covered

Console is basically a PC. Installing Windows or something like that gives you the full PC power. The PS3 and PS4 have the hardware. just the OS needs to be able to support PC criteria.

LMAO tablet gaming. Hope you like bejeweled clones and shitty ports of games made for other systems (usually multiple years old). Releasing new versions of consoles to lower the manufacturing margins (and then the price) is really standard practice and has been for over a decade now, nothing really surprising here. Some people will buy them, some people won't.

Nothing really else to say about it.

The PS4 is not backwards compatible with PS3 discs. Sony plans to allow you to STREAM PS3 titles from the Gaikai service to your PS4, kinda like how you can stream a game from the PS4/PS3 to your vita.

The downside is lower video quality, increased input lag from the controls and the requirement to have a sufficient internet connection. While its better than nothing, it certainly is not nearly as good as being able to play the game right from the console itself, be it disc or a PSN download. You can basically forget about competitive online play, or any game that requires quick reaction/timing.

I hope you are joking by thinking tablets will replace consoles. If anything, you should compare tablet gaming to other mobile devices, like smartphones, DS and Vita systems. If you think playing Facebook games on your tablet are going to be better than playing full high budget games on a dedicated console you are sorely mistaken.

Who gives a crap? Another PS3 with a new plastic case.

I'm going to rush out and buy one - not. Consoles are dead - long live the tablet. Consoles RIP.

It was a great ride, but its over now. See you on the other side!

The PS4 won't be backwards compatible with PS3 discs, I think there may be streaming over PSN for some PS3 games.

Sony said that the PS3 is not backwards compatible ages ago, but you will be able to use GaiKai to stream older PS1, PS2 and PS3 directly to your PS4.
