PS3 Super Slim? Never Say Never – Sony

PS3 Super Slim? Never Say Never – Sony

When it comes to revisions of existing hardware, Sony’s front and center. The firm’s well-known for revising its consoles not once, twice, but three times during their time on the market. We’ve seen PS3 phat, one slim, will we see another slimmer, lighter PS3? “Never say never,” is Sony’s response.

“We haven’t announced anything new on PS3 in terms of hardware revisions. We should never say never – hardware guys are always looking at ways to make things cheaper, smaller,” Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida told Eurogamer at E3.

Good answer, but will Sony actually do it?

“I don’t know if we are going to talk about anything like that. We are quite happy with the PS3.”

When asked if we would see a PS MOVE hardware upgrade, the exec’s answer was equality elusive:

“It’s very difficult to answer your questions,” Yoshida replied. “We are not talking about any hardware revisions. We are very happy with what we have with PS3, PS Move. If anything, we haven’t been able to really fully make use of the potential of PS Move. We are still finding new ways to use PS Move on PS3, and we continue to search for applications.”

We’ll have to wait and see, then. But I’m sure it won’t be long before the rumors start piling onto gaming’s web.

    How about you guys at Sony focus more on the PS4! Make It more Epic! PS3 already has the newest generation of slim that is doing pretty good already. Just focus on the PS4, let it have more features, better graphics cards, better ram, and of course please don’t let it be so expensive like the PS3 launch price! :D

    they really need a redesigned ps3 to try boost sales this holiday!
    especially with such a lacklustre launch line up!
    i wish $ony would bring back the old ps3 design, the shiny piano black finish with the chrome strips and touch sensitive buttons.
    but in a totally new shape, and much much thinner!
    perfect way to make a quick buck!
    even better a good excuse to do a limited edition version for the launch of GOW ascension!
    one thing ill never understand about $ony!
    M$ makes a fortune releasing special designed consoles for big releases like halo, gears, star wars, MW3, ect, ect.
    why wont $ony!
    easiest way to make a quick buck!
    i would of sold my ps3 in a heartbeat for a GOW3 one with a air brush finish of kratos ripping healios head clean off!
