    Rumor: "Super Slim" PS3 model lands September 28th

    Whilst it’s tricky to put too much stock into message board posts as concrete proof, news that we’ll finally see the much rumoured CECH-4000 redesign hitting isn’t exactly a stretch.

    Posts over on NeoGAF have pointed out that September 28th is the likely release date for the new model – days after this year’s Tokyo Game Show and would tie in nicely with a couple of big releases.

    Namely, FIFA and the complete Gran Turismo re-release.

    As stated, none of this is confirmed and thus it’s clearly marked as a rumour. But the poster seems confident and seeing as everyone expected the 4000 to be announced at Gamescom, a TGS reveal seems perfectly possible.
    via TheSixthAxis.

    Polish site Polygamia made the following discovery:

    the information is about selling the new ps3 bundle/game for 309 euros with the approprieta(sorry for the spelling) margin.no price drop is mentioned so i cant tell for sure.if i have any information about a price-drop i ll post asap.

    the second bundle has uc3+gt5 with all the dlc(theyre called "special editions")

    Just how slim does your PS3 really need to be!?
    I'll pass, but the 500gbs is sounding really good to me.

    It makes no sense to me. The PS3 slim is fine as it is. I don't want a new model.

    It better come with a price cut at least.

    I believe that will be the point. Lowering the manufacturing costs, resulting on a slimmer, cheaper PS3.

    Hopefully it's real. Was about to replace the PSU in my slim but if this is less than 150 I may just buy a new machine

    Sounds like if this is true there will be some pretty good deals! Such a great console with good games for a more than reasonable price

    ^-- Correct, lower manufacing cost due to smaller chips and cheaper parts (no self loading blu-ray drive) = cheaper price

    Then Sony also has the cheaper PS3 Essentials games coming out this month as well. So those games + a cheaper PS3 and even slimmer would get a good boost in sales for the PS3. Mainly if MS doesn't cut the price of the 360, so the PS3 would be pretty much the same price.. You would see the PS3 overtake the 360 in LTD sales in no time.

    Sony seem to be going all out to make its content very affordable. Essentials are great and then there is the Collection range and the instant game collection on PS+. If Sony knew how to market, it would make a killing with what they are setting up. However, it doesn't lol. I still think the PS3 will become the new PS2 (aka console that still sells 6 years into next gen).

    Looking forward to seeing what the cuts are from it before I decide whether to get another PS3 via this model.

    It won't be much Slimmer but it'll be smaller and lighter and cheaper to produce probably so makes every sense.

    And yeah I'd guess around the end of September for it too, remember when the original Slim launched and it sold out in a lot of places? So they can't release it too close to Christmas.

    My PS3 has 750gb.

    Id love a cheaper smaller model just for the network and blu-ray features.

    I seriously hope it doesn't have a flap over the disc tray like the ps2 slim.

    If this is true, I will be getting one and replacing my 40gb PS3 fatty. My birthday is 9/29, so it sounds like a great present for me!

    I only bought a slim about a month ago, I thought the new slim sku were just rumours, but it seems it is becoming a reality.

    Does anyone know who this guy on Neogaf is? I read the post as well and no one was really discrediting him so I assume he has inside information.

    My 80GB fatty died just over a month ago and I was holding off hoping this was going to be announced in Germany...fingers crossed it happens at TGS as I will be picking up a slim either way soon.
