The New PlayStation 3

Smaller, lighter, and more initial storage space.

Shaving off 25% in size and 20% in weight, the new redesign will come in three different variants (and two colors) according to hard drive size: 250GB, 500GB, and one with only 12GB of flash memory which will be unavailable in North America.

Power draw has been reduced to 190w vs the Slim’s 250w.

The US 250GB version will first ship for $270 bundled with Uncharted 3 and a $30 DUST 514 PSN voucher. The 500GB version is still under-wraps.

No word yet on any changes for the Cell and RSX chips’ nm size, though one might assume a smaller process given the lower power draw.
