Meanwhile the existing 250GB and 500GB black PS3 models, along with the 250GB white one, will be discontinued. We've contacted Sony to ask whether we might see the new model launched globally, and what other changes might be included with the new console.

It may be nothing more than some slightly tweaked innards, but a cost reduction would be more than welcome - especially as Sony's still giving its full support to the last-gen console, with plenty of new titles still on the horizon."
