    VG247 Rumor: PS3-4000 skips gamescom, 16Gb Flash SKU goes cheap 99

    PS3-4000 skips gamescom, 16Gb Flash SKU goes cheap

    A VG247 source has claimed that Sony will not announce PS3-4000 at its gamescom press conference on August 14.

    PS3-4000, the latest, slimmest version of Sonys current console, will not be announced at themain Sony gamescom press conference on August 14, VG247 has been told.
    A gamescom reveal had been planned, but stock levels of the current build are said to be too high for Sony to move onto what is probably the last take on PS3 before PlayStation 4 is announced next year.
    In addition, a source today said that the rumoured 16Gb version of PS3-4000 is in fact real, and is based on Flash memory. There was some confusion surrounding the figure, which originated from Anatel, the Brazilian Agency of Telecommunications, with many assuming it was intended to read 160Gb.
    The new model will stack up against Microsofts 4Gb Flash-based Xbox 360. As the 16Gb PS3-4000 will have a flip-lid disc input and low-capacity storage, weve been told today that the announcement may be accompanied by a huge price cut, with the entry version potentially dropping as low as 99. Specifics are yet to be ironed out, though.
    In addition to the 16Gb version, 250GB and 500GB options have been rumoured.

    if true PS3 sells are going to skyrocket.

    Haha! €130 for a super slim PS3...That'd be crazy if true...Still, I'm pretty bored of any article or news that has "rumored" or "reported" in it.

    Hopefully that doesn't mean they've stripped it of any other features.

    sorry. Well I have my 60gb launch console from being 2nd in line at gamestop and never had a problem with it. TBH I outside the convienent card readers I don't know why everyone makes a big deal about how valuable they are.

    Actually I just meant all the bigger consoles they have there will likely take a huge drop if these get released. I mean they rip people off with the prices it would be nice to see them get burned.

    I sold a broken 60GB for like $150 on ebay, its probably for the BC but its a pointless feature to me now since most of the games I'd play using BC have either had HD remasters or are available as PS2 Classics on the Store (which I prefer to have PS1 and PS2 games digitally anyway).

    Who would have thought building a solid product that serves your customer's needs would beat out money, marketing, hype, and greed.

    That 3 million unit gap people seem to obsess over seems smaller and smaller every day.

    I wonder if Sony will start to do PS3 and Vita bundles as a response to the Wii U's dual control setup? They could bundle a game like PS All Stars Battle Royale or maybe LBP 2 with the new Vita DLC they showed off.

    I actually agree. It's just an idea that isn't entirely unfeasible.
