The habit of re-releasing existing hardware but smaller is nothing new for Sony fans, it started with the PS2 and continued to the PSP and the PS3 each getting a “slim” version. However today Sony is taking it a step further, documents submitted to the FCC show Sony plans to release an even slimmer model of the PS3.
This could mean a price drop for current slim models, and if you where holding out just a big longer for that PS3 to be slim enough to cut your finger then this is for you!
I myself am still running on a 2nd wave 80 gig “Fat” PS3.
