PS3 ‘SuperSlim’ on the way?

An FCC filing registered by Sony seems to have let slip on a new PlayStation 3 model.

What has already been dubbed the ‘SuperSlim’ by many, the updated series of models begins with the CECH-4001. The current models of PS3 Slim reside in the CECH-3000 series.

You may remember that back in 2009, Gamescom was the platform for Sony revealing a PS3 price drop, along with the new version of the console. With the same event coming up in just a few weeks time, it looks like once again this exciting announcement will occur at the German-based expo.

Around a month ago, Shuhei Yoshida of Sony admitted the following to Eurogamer, when questioned on a hardware revision:

“We should never say never – hardware guys are always looking at ways to make things cheaper, smaller.”

Take a look at the leaked diagram below, and let us know what you think about this potential new PS3.
