New console model could be revealed at Tokyo Game Show

PS3 super slim leak suggests imminent reveal

A new super slim model of the PS3 could be released later this month after a Polish retailer sent out a promotional teaser for a new system.

As reported by Polygamia, the teaser included a blacked out PS3 with a question mark on the console, suggesting an imminent reveal of the new SKU.

A likely time for unveiling could be at the Tokyo Game Show which begins on Thursday, at which Sony is also expected to unveil a new virtual reality headset.

Previous rumours have claimed that the new super slim model could come with as little as 12GB flash memory, at a cost of around £200. It has also been suggested the new console will ship alongside a large 500GB PS3 model.

Reports of a new SKU surfaced in July after a filing to the US Federal Communications Commission suggested a potential new 4000 series – the CECH-4001x – was in development.

The system was believed to be a smaller and slimmer model of the PS3, following on from the previously released PS3 Slim released in 2009.
