New PS3 model has amazing price potential

It looks like the various rumors speculating on a new PS3 model from Sony are turning out to be true. The company is definitely going to be in attendance at GamesCom next month and now it looks like they are bringing a new version of the PS3 slim with them as well.

Previously, all we had to go on before was rumors and some brief details of the model showing up at the FCC website. Now though, we have even more meat to share with you, as the first pictures of the device have appeared on Brazilian website Technoblog.

They have wasted no time in sharing a gallery of pictures showing the new model and to say it looks a little unusual is an understatement. Sony are apparently opting to keep that curved shape of the console as seen on the original fat PS3, but this time they may have decided to add a series of grooves along the top surface of the console.

The shiny chrome material seen on the fat model is still there in places, but the new grooved effect seems to be taking priority here for Sony. Underneath the top cover, it is a similar style to the current slim model and we again see two slots for USB peripherals.

Another interesting aspect of the new CECH-4000 series PS3, is that Sony may be planning to offer just a 16GB model, which we’re guessing will be available for a very affordable price. Storage sizes may then be bulked up with 250GB or a whopping 500GB of storage space, so there will be a choice for everyone.

What are you more surprised about – the design, or the fact that there may be a 16GB storage option? Once again it appears that another Sony product has leaked out before the company has a chance to unveil it properly. Do you like the look of this new model or not? We have to say that we’re not really a fan of the new design as it looks in this picture.
