Recent news from sony that we are coming to hear is that a new model of the famous game console playstation 3 is going to be made. This was caught by a recent FCC filing that reveals a listing for two new PlayStation models which included the CECH-4000A and CECH-4000B. The current PlayStation 3 has a model number of CECH-3000, this means that Sony is somewhere getting ready to launch two new additions to its ps3 line up. There isn’t much information surrounding what the 4000 series might bring, but Eurogamer believes it could be an even slimmer console.
From the sources Eurogamer heard that a slimmer model of the PlayStation 3 is on its arrival and with an announcement planned for Gamescom next month. Sony may already have the PS3 Slim, but Kotaku believes that it’s not implausible for the company to release yet another thinner model. If you rewind your life span a bit back then you will find that the PS2 also received such an update towards the end of its lifespan, so perhaps Sony wants to squeeze out the last few remaining dollar before its next-generation console launch.
Rumors also indicate that the PlayStation 4 is known as “Orbis”, and will feature one of AMD’s x64 processors plus discrete Radeon graphics. The Orbis is said to be able to display a resolution of 4096×2160, and can play 3D games at 1080p. Select developers have reportedly already received test consoles,and beta units will be sent out towards the end of the year. Backwards compatibility with PS3 games is expected, although Orbis games allegedly feature an anti-used games system, presently second hand sales.
