PS3 Slim Getting Slimmer

ps3_logo1Japanese gaming site Andriasang is reporting that a new PlayStation 3 slimlined model is being released, and will be lighter than the current models on the market.

A retailer is reporting today that Sony will be giving the PlayStation 3 a slight weight reduction from its current 3.2kg to 3.0kg. This will be accompanied by a change in model number from CECH-2000A to CECH-2100A.

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.

It’ll be interesting to see if the new PS3 Slim Slim will cost less when it comes to North America.
