All the way back in 2009, Sony announced the PlayStation 3 Slim at GamesCom in Germany. The rebranding effort helped to reverse the PS3’s fortunes, transforming the platform into the popular system we know today.
Three years on, Sony has refused to rule out the possibility of another hardware revision. Speaking with Eurogamer.net, Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida revealed:
We haven't announced anything new on PS3 in terms of hardware revisions. We should never say never - hardware guys are always looking at ways to make things cheaper, smaller.
Yoshida continued that Sony is “quite happy” with the current PS3 hardware. Would you like to see the system get a refresh, or are you comfortable with the current design?
