New PS3 Model Confirmed for Japan

June 20, 2011 -

Confirming rumors from earlier this month, Sony has opened an official page for the new CECH-3000B model PlayStation 3. The new hardware will begin shipping sometime later this month in Japan.

The official page confirms details from a retail advertisement that was leaked to the public earlier this month. The new model will be available in Charcoal Black, will feature lower power consumption at 200 watts, will weigh around 2.6kg, and will include a 320 gigabyte hard drive. It will be priced at ¥34,980, the same price point for other PS3 models on the market in the region. Accessories include the usual - a Dual Shock 3 controller, power cable, AV cable and USB cable.

The previously announced PS3 bundle featuring Namco Bandai's Tales of Xillia X will include a 160 gigabyte version of the CECH-3000 hardware. Aside from the X Edition release, Sony has not mentioned a solo 160 gigabyte package, according to Andriasang. The X Edition hardware bundle releases September 8 for ¥37,980.

There was some speculation that this new model would be "hack proof" but that part of the story has not been confirmed. We assume it will have firmware 3.65 onboard at launch or a later version of the firmware.

Hack-proof? They should call it Troy.

Re: New PS3 Model Confirmed for Japan

"Hack proof"? Isn't that what they said about almost every other model of the PS3 to date?

They may as well have hung a big sign on it saying "HACK ME!" :)

 

Re: New PS3 Model Confirmed for Japan

Yeah, that's... really not a good move...

Re: New PS3 Model Confirmed for Japan

Indeed, we saw where that went before. Six weeks without PSN so they could shore up their crappy security.

Re: New PS3 Model Confirmed for Japan

Meh, I still maintain that the PSN would have gone down regardless. It was a targeted, concentrated attack. PSN was going to go down even if they had the best security in the world.

Re: New PS3 Model Confirmed for Japan

It went down because SONY brought it down, not external source. It WAS breached, but the decision to bring it offline was made by SONY. The strings of attacks we have seen recently either got information through weak or outdated security or simply brought down services for an hour or so when they couldn't get in. Either way, the people who attacked SONY and prompted this month of downtime did it because it was easy and the timing good. Put proper security and they might have never gotten in, even if it could be done. Last thing: You can maintain something as long as you want, it doesn't make it true; in IT we know that up to date security is a world of difference with outdated or badly configured one.

Re: New PS3 Model Confirmed for Japan

I probably should have worded that better. I know it was Sony who brought it down. I'm saying the result would have been the same no matter what. I personally don't believe it was done because Sony's security was weak, or it was easy. I think whoever did it had an agenda, and they were getting in, one way or another. Sony's weak security only made it convenient.

I'm perfectly aware that up-to-date security makes a world of difference, but if you're in IT, you also know there's no such thing as a perfect security system. Just because you believe I'm wrong doesn't mean I am wrong. It could go either way. I guess only time can tell, yes?

Matthew Wilson@AE I know I was just stating where I stand on issues like that in general04/27/2015 - 8:12pm
Andrew EisenWho, Colin Cowherd? No one's suggesting he should be forced out. Or that he should commentate on video games.04/27/2015 - 8:10pm
Matthew Wilson@AE I do not think he should be forced ou though. he has his right to his opinion and shouldnt be forced out because people disagree with it.04/27/2015 - 8:07pm
ZippyDSMleeJim suggjested a pay what you want setup like humble bundel.04/27/2015 - 7:49pm
MontePerhaps they should just add a donation system for creators like the monthly pateron model. Only those who regularly make quality content can get compensated while those who would abuse the system are ignored04/27/2015 - 7:46pm
MontePaid mods is not a bad idea; i mean its only fair that makers be compensated and even better if they can do it full time. UNfortunatly there is too much that can go wrong and room for abuse04/27/2015 - 7:44pm
Andrew EisenYeah, working on that story now. Or rather, I'm working on finding time to write up that story.04/27/2015 - 7:40pm

Matthew Wilson@zippy there is no way they are going to merge with capcom becouse both companies are not in good shape. sony, Nintendo, and square are the only companies with enough money to pull it off in japan.04/27/2015 - 4:27pm

E. Zachary KnightNot really. I think people are overly critical of other game projects. Delays should be expected and shouldn't be considered a major failing and worthy of the crap they get.04/27/2015 - 3:09pm
