Sounds plausible. We will have to wait to see if this actually happens, although I doubt this minor upgrade and reconfiguration will have much effect on the overall appeal of the PS3. This refreshed version, should it ever come into existence will hardly be a PS4 however.
indeed ajay. I can see this happening, but not a PS4...The ps3 doesn't really have many good titles still..lol. Too early for a new console. But I could see an update to make it more interactive via the internet. It's definitely a plus based on what sony promised. Overall, still definitely worth looking into ^_^. It's a real bummer though that PS3's from now on will have no backwards compatibility...Talk about suckage, one of the benefits was being able to play all older titles without having to buy a ps2 or psx, all you'd need is a ps3 and you got all 3...::sighs::.. Damn you sony!
After stopping production on the 80GB PS3 models I would say its an system upgrade they are shootin' fer .... 120GB PS3 with....upgraded GFX hardware :) (just guessing)
I doubt it'll be updated graphics hardware, that would really piss people off it they made a better video card solution for this new PS3 version. It'll most likely just be software based, updating it and allowing more features for media/interconnectivity. As always, some minor hardware changes for their boards and positional layout..But it's not gonna be too massive, mostly just software would be my guess.
i wonder how much it will cost
I've never was a playstation for or a console fan. I just got used to the comptuers so much that I do everything on them. I do play XBOX 360 at my friends house every now and then. :) I bet it is going to cost like the current playstation 3 when it came out, around 600-800 dollars.
So curently the choices are PS3 with few good games, or X Box 360 and the Red Dawn over heating issue? I have an Xbox that just needs an optical drive, drive lasted just past warentee. I'll probably replace it and Ebay it out cause I'm sticking with the PC from now on.
I do not know what you could correct with the current version of the PS3.It is build solid like a rock,next to zero hardware issues after intensive use and has up to date updates
