New PS3 in Development?
Filed under: PS3, SONY, CONSOLES, HARDWARE
Word is spreading that Sony Computer Entertainment has what's being described as the plans for a new PS3 model. Reportedly, the new model has been submitted to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Sony supposedly offered a new model to the FCC for testing, to provide an upgrade from the present 3000 series (via NeoGAF).

Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida did kind of hint at this. "We haven't announced anything new on PS3 in terms of hardware revisions," he commented. "We should never say never - hardware guys are always looking at ways to make things cheaper, smaller."

Cheddar: Not even close to that, MajFauxPas.

All this means is that Sony has found an even cheaper way to manufacture the current PS3, and since there's still going to be at least a couple years left in the generation, there's no reason not to put it in production.

A portion of their engineers spent time on this, but I doubt they spent much money. And that's rather the point.

Oh and btw, the PS2 generation was two months shy of 7 years, and the PS3 generation is on year 6.
