Sony’s updates don’t just beef up the PS3′s firmware. They release some small tweaks and updates to the hardware itself, too. Sony sent out the official word on the changes being assembled to the PS3 Slim console.
Gaming blog Andriasang says that the new slim spin-off, dubbed the CECH-3000B, is based on a 320 gigabyte PS3 Slim. The power consumption is being cut from 230W to 200W while the weight is being cut down by 400 grams. Other tweaks include external changes to the power and eject buttons. One retailer also mentioned the removal of LED lamps, although Andriasang notes that the specifics aren’t quite clear.
One thing that isn’t changing is the price. The CECH-3000B model will have the same ¥ 34,980 price point as the current 320GB PS3 Slim model. The included accessories – Dual Shock 3, power cable, AV cable and USB cable — also remain the same.
The new models will start showing up on retails shelves sometime this month.

Now that we have that out of the way, let me get directly to the point, fearless reader. The reason why we even come to this blog. The reason we huddle together in dark basements and even darker living rooms. It’s the reason I sit on my couch during most weekends and hiss like a vampire when my girlfriend opens the curtains or turns on a light. That little black technological wonder – the Playstation 3.
Recently over the holiday weekend, I had the distinct pleasure of my girlfriends’ parents stay with us. Her stepdad enjoys watching gameplay on my super awesome tv, usually commenting on the graphics and how smooth everything looks. It was then time to open presents on Christmas morning and low and behold I received the new Logitech 960 wireless headset as well as other mind exploding gifts. So as you can imagine I was eager to set up these ear goggles and rushed with baited breath and begin the daunting task of setting this headset up with my little black friend.
