196w ago - After reports of two new PS3 Slim models hitting the FCC a few weeks back, today Andriasang.com (linked above) has uncovered news of yet another, lighter, PlayStation Slim model CECH-2100A on the way courtesy of a Japanese retailer.
The slight weight reduction from its current 3.2kg to 3.0kg will be indicated by a change in model number from CECH-2000A to the new CECH-2100A.
To quote: "It's presumable that, aside from just the weight, something else has changed inside the system. Sony often makes minor hardware adjustments, changing the model number in the process.
The retailer expects Sony's PS3 shipments to switch to the new version in March."

225w ago - We did say today was alleged PS3 Slim ad day earlier, right?
Another has now surfaced from alexval78 at French site PS3Gen (linked above) which purportedly shows an ad for a 'new PS3 console at a new price' slated for September 1, 2009 and allegedly costing €299 Euros.
To quote, roughly translated: "Carrefour catalog contains active bids on Thursday 27 August to Tuesday September 8. Through its pages, our member was surprised to see an announcement regarding "a new console and a new award, announced on our beloved PS3!
As you can see, the layout is still that of the current PS3, but the offer is clear: Carrefour will offer for sale a new PS3, with a reduced price of €100, beginning the first of September next. This is certainly the improved version of the monolith as we know it as the Slim PS3."
