New PS3 Slim 12 GB Model Coming in October Says German Retailer

105w ago - 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."

I agree, not much you can do with 12 GB memory! At a higher price, I think not ! Will pass on this one if that's the case.

maybe it has a better blu-ray drive that will tell games not to install? idk... like other comments, 12 gb is just so small. i mean, there are quite a few SEN games that are at least a gig.

I thouht it was a typo and should have read either 12tb, 1.2tb or maybe even 120gb! NOT 12GB! lol

12gb is totally pointless, but then again it could be a hackers dream and be easily broken into - then if upgradable it might be a win for the scene!

- Wouldn't be surprised if it was on-line only and the 12gb was just for temporarily downloaded files though!
