The new model – coded CECH 4000 – was widely expected to form the centrepiece of SCEE’s press conference, but that appears to have changed.
Citing “sources”, VG247 are saying that the announcement will now not happen next month because stock levels of the current 3000 model PS3 are still “too high”.
In related news, it’s claimed that the 16GB version – something we’ve discussed at length recently – is very much real and will come with a ridiculously low price point.
The rumour suggesting it might even release at the budget-friendly and all important £99 mark.
We’ll see come August.
