Word of the new “CECH-3000” model PlayStation 3 surfaced earlier in the month and now a retailer is claiming to have received a briefing on the new model. The CECH-3000B is an updated 320 gigabyte system. Power consumption goes from 230W to 200W, and the weight from 3.0kg to 2.6kg.
The power and eject buttons are changed and the LED lights removed, but we don’t have specifics on that. Pricing will be the same as the current model. You can expect the new version to ship to retailers when the current stock runs out.
