Rumor: Slim PS3 Coming?


Rumors are surfacing of a forthcoming slim PS3.


Sony always size/cost reduces their hardware, so a slim PS3 is obviously coming, it’s simply a question of when.

Engadget also says:

the next iteration of PS3 packages has been all but confirmed during a GameStop conference call recently.

So, the safe bets for hardware revisions:

  • Bigger Hard Disk
  • DualShock 3 controller with both sixaxis funtionality and rumble
  • Newer cheaper, cooler, quieter, and more reliable parts
  • Smaller Form Factor

The big questions are:

  • When will these improvements hit?
  • Will we see original PS3 features restored such as PS2 backward compatibility, 4 USB ports, integrated flash card reader, and SACD support?
  • Will we get extras such as DVR features, optical disc writing, and expanded RAM for improved Linux home PC support?
