To be honest, if my PS3 died, I'd buy a used Slim or original fat one. I still have one of the originals, and the build quality of the newer models seems utterly crap in comparison.

many people already have a spare 2.5" sata hdd so it is cheaper to buy the 12gb version.

 

what kind of people do you know??

 

I always thought this model was a typo for the 120GB version

What are you doing to your console? Kicking it around your house?

 

Kids and a manually closing disc cover don't mix.

I concur with that, also kids and slot loaders are a nightmare too. My iMac and 2 PS3's have had their disc loading mechanisms destroyed by toddlers

That was my first thought as well, didn't even know it existed and never saw it in stores, unlike the 4GB 360, which is very prominent.

New PS4 and PS3 Models Revealed by Certification Request Filed by Sony

 

The PS4 has just been launched a few months ago, but Sony might already be planning to launch a new model of its new console. The manufacturer filed for the registration of two new “Computer Entertainment Systems” with the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology of the Republic of Indonesia.

 
The filing, listed on the official website of the Directorate of General Resources and Equipment of Post and Information Technology, bears the model number CUH-1106A. This seems to indicate an evolution of the console, but not a radical redesign like the passage from the PS3 slim to the super slim, for instance, which is normally indicated by an incremental change of the first number of the code (the slim was launched with the model number CECH-2001A, while the super slim started with CECH-4001A).
 
Currently the Asian version of the PS4 has the code CUH-1006A. The incremental change of the second digit to CUH-1106A seems to indicate an evolution akin to the passage from the first model of the PS3 slim equipped with a 65nm RSX graphics chip (CECH-2001A) to the second model eqiopped with a 40nm one (CECH-2101A).
 
The number also seems to exclude a simple evolution in the size of the hard disk, as that would be indicated by the change of the letter at the end of the code (CUH-1006A would become CUH-1006B).
 
 
Doubt anyone is getting a slimmer PS4 already.

I don't think the PS4 needs to be slimmer, if anything, it needs to lose some depth! It's almost deeper than my massive A/V receiver, and just about fits on my rack! :laugh:

I'd also quite like a matt black "sliding" cover (the bit that covers the HDD). The gloss attracts way too much dust for my liking, and it's looking a little scratched up already - which is odd since I only ever use a micro fibre cloth, and the Wii U gets the same treatment and that looks like new still. Also, it seems to have gotten pretty loose.
