Sony may be working on newer PS4, PS3 models – rumour

Wednesday, 21st May 2014 18:05 GMT By Sherif Saed

Sony has registered two PlayStation models with the Indonesian Ministry of Communications, indicating that a hardware revision could be on the way.

The first listing on a website related to the Indonesian Ministry of Communications shows the model number (CUH-1106A). The Asian PS4 model name is (CUH-1006A), and as DualShockers suggest, this could indicate a newer revision of sorts of the PS4 model, not a completely new model like the older Slim to the original PS3.

DualShockers also adds that this might not be a model with a bigger hard-drive, as the hard-drive is indicated by the last letter, which is unchanged.

The second listing is a PS3 listing, with the model name (CECH-4306CH), which seems to be following the model number of the Super Slim model (CECH-4001A), indicating that a revision of the Super Slim line is also on the cards.

If this is indeed a newer model, Sony could be announcing at E3 next month, we’ll find out soon enough.

    Isn’t it a little soon for a new model of PS4 ?!
    And if they leave hdd unchanged, what’s gonna be a motive to buy this new model if they continue original model production ?

    @thunderrun Could be just a small internal change, with the same look and advertisement as the current one, they might not even mention it the public.

    No, wrong. Both PS3m models are CECH-4xxxx, hence same things, but for different regions. Same with PS4.
    This is the bad thing about DualShockers, they try to make too much news out of thin air without proper knowledge.

    @Dragon Agreed, and the fact that a site like VG247, is carrying such a story without also fact finding, is embarassing.

    If there is no news, VG247 please don’t result to posting any old thing, it will only harm the sites rep
