SCEE CEO Jim Ryan has skirted around talk of a long-rumoured super slim PS3 model when probed at gamescom. Sony was rumoured to unveil the new model at its conference but it didn’t materialise.

Speaking with CVG, the Sony exec was asked why the PS3-4000 wasn’t mentioned at Sony’s pre-gamescom conference last week, to which he replied, “Which new PS3″, before laughing it off.

When asked why the new model wasn’t mentioned, Ryan replied, “Well, we had so much to talk about on the software side, and that’s all we wanted to talk about.”

The denial follows rumours that Sony had planned to unveil the PS3-4000 on August 14.

The alleged console is said to feature 16GB of flash memory, along with rumoured 250GB and 500GB models.
