A series of documents recently submitted to the Federal Communications Commission by Sony have been revealed by Japanese website PocketNews which seems to be detailing what appears to be a new Playstation 3 model that IGN has decided to dub the “Super Slim” PS3.
The documents reveal that the illustrated device is called the CECH-4001x. The current slim Playstation 3 is CECH-30xxB, which definitely seems to indicate that this may very well be a new model that is indeed super slim.
When will Sony reveal the device? The most likely time would be during Gamescom 2012, which will be held this year from August 15 to 19 in Cologne.
