MCV can confirm that the PS3-4000 ‘super slim’ will not be making an appearance at Sony’s press conference during this year’s Gamescom.
The unit - which is slimmer than its ‘slim’ model - is rumoured to have 16GB of flash memory and to retail at under £100.
Sony confirmed to MCV that the console is real but that it won’t be shown at Gamescom this year. It’s rumoured to be pulled from the conference due to high stock levels of the PS3 slim that’s currently in retail.
The new console will have a flip-lid disc input and low-capacity storage to offer the console at the lowest price possible. An entry version of the console is rumoured to cost £99 with larger storage options going up to 500GB.
The 16GB storage space and £99 entry price rivals the Xbox 360’s 4GB unit that retails at £139.99.
