A 250GB PlayStation 3 Slim console has been discovered on the FCC site. The new model, CECH-2000B, is different to the model announced yesterday at GamesCom, which is model number CECH-2000A. The only difference we can see is that it features a bigger hard drive than the model coming out in September.
Sony tried to hide under a company called Sand Dollar Enterprise, Inc. of 1518 Ascension Drive in San Mateo CA. Sand Dollar Enterprise, Inc is represented by SCEA’s General Council, Riley Russell. This house is actually a private residence, but whomever lives here filed the documents with the FCC, most likely on the behalf of Sony, as they would be much harder to find with a different FCC ID (XCE) than that of Sony (AK8).
This means that some time in the future (for probably a premium, maybe $349 / €349 or so), a new PS3 Slim may come out featuring a 250GB HDD, possible sometime before Christmas?
