Images have leaked across the internet of, what some are saying might be, Sony’s newer, slimmer model of the PlayStation 3. We reported the FCC filing that was found online a while back.
Anatel, the Brazilian Agency of Telecommunications, posted a picture of a blurry—of course, right?—PS3 that seems to have a ribbed casing, what looks to be a top-loading flap (for discs), and some inconsistent matte and glossy finishes.
This may be a prototype unit, or completely fake.
Technoblog says that the documents from Sony Brazil indicate that there will be three models of this new PS3; CECH-4011A, CECH-4011B and CECH-4011C which will vary in storage space, between 16GB , 250GB, and 500GB respectively.
See the images below.
What do you think? Fake, or just ugly?
