New PlayStation 3 Spotted

It looks like Sony may be bringing a refresh to its PS3 gaming console.

Well, that’s certainly the impression I get after seeing Sony’s FCC filing that happens to reveal new model numbers.

As you can see in the picture above the two model numbers CECH-3001A and CECH-3001B are listed with the product name Computer Entertainment System (PlayStation 3). As the original PS3 and PS3 Slim were listed with numbers CECH 2xxx this does point to a new generation of PlayStation 3.

Apart from those new model numbers, very little else is known about the new PS3, apart from where the label is going to be stuck.

There have been rumours that Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity may appear in the new iteration as well as a hard drive.

The curious thing is that the CECH-3001 PS3 model number did pop up online from in December last year – so a thorough testing must have been completed as mentioned in the note column 😉

I reckon Sony needs to sort out its PlayStation Network security if it wants more people to be playing on its consoles though.
