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

98w 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."

yep anything smaller than 40GB HDD are not recommended, specially that almost all games released today requires you to mandatory install the game on HDD first (unlike in xbox360 which is HDD copy is optional)

If it is equal or cheaper than the current one, has a slot for a hard drive and comes with a free month of Plus it'll kill Xbox and Wii U.

If it's more expensive and storage cannot be upgraded it'll be just a stupid move and a waste of money both for company and consumer alike.
