Earlier last month we reported on the leaked photos of the PlayStation 3 slim model spotted on the Internet. Sony was quick to deny the rumors and the even went as far as stating that they “currently has no plans” for a redesign. With the news of the PSP Go! leaked over the weekend, many websites including the BBC have picked up on the story, but with one exception. The BBC has mentioned that the new slimmer PS3 “will not be launched at E3.” The BBC goes further and says “new PS3 model will be out later this year.”
There have also been reports that Sony will announce a re-designed, slimmer PlayStation 3 but BBC News understands this will not be launched at E3.
The new PS3 model will be out later this year, BBC News understands.
Sony is likely to confirm the slim PS3 closer to the launch date, and is likely to launch it simultaneously in all regions. We’re eagerly awaiting more news on the new model, including hardware specs and images. As always, we’ll keep you updated on any news.
