FCC filing suggesst 'super slim' PlayStation 3

Spotted documents make Gamescom reveal a probability

Sony may be coming out with a revised PlayStation 3 that is even smaller than the revised model introduced three years ago. An FCC filing seen by PocketNews shows an unknown PlayStation 3 with the model number CECH-4001X, which Eurogamer suggests is a "Super Slim" version, rumored to be unveilled at Gamescom next month.

The current version of the PlayStation is the 3000 series. The PS3 Slim rebranding at Gamescom in 2009 introduced its predecessor, the 2000 series. Each change in series brings a revision of the hardware, the most major of which was from the original large PS3 to the aforementioned smaller model. The X suffix of the model number would relate to different hard disk specifications, most likely different sizes of drive. Considering the previous announcements for hardware revisions were made at Gamescom, it is likely to be made at the event again, despite there being no official word from Sony over the changes.

The unannounced yet still heavily-rumored PlayStation 4 has yet to appear in any FCC or similar filings. Current rumors suggest a late-2013 or early 2014 release, and the use of a quad-core 3.2GHz AMD Fusion APU, along with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of flash memory. There is also no word on how recent Sony acquisition Gaikai will fit into the future plans of the PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4. [via Eurogamer]
