With the recent news that the 40GB bundle no longer will be packaged with Spiderman 3, apparently a new model number has been issued. According to a couple of Circuit City employees, that new model number happens to be, CECHH01.
Now, this model number just happens to also be the same model number given to the White PlayStation 3. With recent news regarding the silver version and the fact it wasn't going to find its way over to North America, it was almost naturally assumed that this version wouldn't either.
Will North America finally get to see a different color for the PlayStation 3 brand finally? We'll keep you updated if anything becomes official.
