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 The strings of attacks we have seen recently either got information through weak or outdated security or simply brought down services for an hour or so when they couldn't get in.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?

MaskedPixelanteSteam is going to start charging us Canadians in CAD. This is bad news... for people who don't use key sellers like GMG and GamersGate.10/01/2014 - 7:23am
InfophileSomething weird was going on with that comment. As soon as I posted it, it looked like it had replies from the past. And now I can't even find it. Ah well, it was getting off-topic for that thread anyway.10/01/2014 - 4:29am
Sleaker@CraigR been using Win8.1 for a while, I don't really see any usability difference between it and 7 (Work uses 7)10/01/2014 - 2:16am
Craig R.Ok, my internal debate was short-lived. If Win10 is still a year out, I'm not waiting that long for an SSD, so on Win7 I will remain.09/30/2014 - 7:52pm
Matthew Wilsonits called windows 10, and I am happy to get the start menu back.09/30/2014 - 7:18pm
Jessy HartIs this stuff about Windows 10 legit? Is it actually called Windows 10 or is it just some stupid joke?09/30/2014 - 6:57pm
ZippyDSMleeSo I been trying to play Bioshock Infinite I got all the DLC,ect but do not want the extras to make your charatcer over powered from the start.....they force you to take them which is quite annoying......09/30/2014 - 6:45pm
Craig R.I need to upgrade to an SSD, still seriously debating moving to Win8.1 from 7 at the same time09/30/2014 - 6:07pm
Craig R.Win10 is probably Win8.1 with more cleanup and the Start button back.09/30/2014 - 6:06pm
Sora-ChanAhh, it's just weird seeing someone's post all of a sudden have replies from days prior before it was posted due to that.09/30/2014 - 5:49pm
MechaTama31sora: I broke the ordering intentionally, as AE's and my conversation had squeezed the text boxes down to be quite slim. I replied to an earlier post of his instead of the one I was actually replying to.09/30/2014 - 5:46pm
MechaTama31So, 9 would have been the good one, but they are skipping it to do two crap ones in a row?09/30/2014 - 5:41pm
Sora-ChanSo, judging from the poll post for #gamergate, it looks like too many thread replies breaks the ordering of posts, as seen with the recent post from Infophile.09/30/2014 - 5:31pm
Andrew EisenOr no! It wasn't Y3K compliant. Microsoft thought it best to super future proof its OS and skipped straight to 10 which is Y3K compliant!09/30/2014 - 5:01pm
Andrew EisenJust tell them it wasn't Y2K compliant.09/30/2014 - 5:00pm
