New PS3 Slim A Possibility According To Sony
Releasing a periodic hardware refresh is now par for the course for most consoles, home or portable. And while the new model is usually lighter, smaller and more power efficient, manufacturers also reap the benefits with a cheaper and more streamlined manufacturing process. Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida is open to the possibility of a newer, slimmer PS3 and all of the advantages that come with it.
“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,” he told Eurogamer.
“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.”
