PlayStation 3 Due For New Design, Based On Sony FCC Filing

PS3 Slim

A newly discovered FCC filing from Sony suggests that the PlayStation 3 maker is preparing to release an entirely new console SKU, Eurogamer reports. There's little detail to be gleaned from the documents about what this actually means, though Eurogamer posits that the filing relates to a "super slim" PS3 model, nodding to a rumor that surfaced at E3 2012.

The documents might not say anything about the dimensions of the unannounced PS3 SKU, but their very existence is an indication that Sony is planning to put a redesigned console out there. The form factor might remain the same, but it's likely that changes to the internal hardware -- the reason for the FCC filing -- would use cheaper components, giving Sony more breathing room for a potential price drop.

The suspicion is that an announcement will be coming at Gamescom 2012, which runs from August 16-19, 2012, in Cologne, Germany. Sony, unsurprisingly, is offering no comment on the filing.
