just announced a next generation console -- the Wii U -- at the E3 Expo, Microsoft
is rumored to be unveiling an Xbox 720 (or whatever the Xbox 360's successor will be called) at next year's E3 Expo, and Sony
? Well, Sony is again rehashing its PlayStation 3 system, this time with a version that's lighter and a little easier on Mother Nature than previous versions.
According to a new listing on Sony Japan's website, the new CECH-3000B PS3 Slim will weigh nearly a pound lighter than before at 5.7 pounds versus 6.6 pounds. It will also consume less energy at 200W versus 230W and come with a 320GB hard drive.
Not bad, especially since the new build will sell for the same price as before (¥34,980). Sony plans to launch the CECH-3000B later this month, but only in Japan, at least initially. No word on when, or even if, this one is destined to land stateside.
