If there’s one thing you can count on from Sony, it’s that a smaller and cheaper redesign of each of every console will eventually come. It’s happened for every system they’ve released except for their newest. Rumors of a slimmer PlayStation 3 are not new. But this new rumor of a fall release for this system has our ears perked back up again.
Stuff.tv says that Sony is expected to break even on the PS3 in August. Analysts say that they’ll finally turn a profit, and will then release this slimmer version to boost demand. Of course, this new version would sport smaller processors and graphics chips, and will probably make the old one look silly and fat.
None of this has been confirmed, but the fall date is in line with what we’ve heard before.
Come on, guys. Make my dreams of a bedroom PS3 (or the transplant of the old one into the bedroom) come true. Oh, and Sony? Skip the silver for glossy white.
