The new model is 20 percent smaller and 25 percent lighter than the current PS3 Slim which will be phased out at retail in the next few months.
Two SKUs of the PS3 Slim will be released this year.
The first is a 500GB model hitting UK shelves on September 28th with a second 12gb PS3 launching on October 12th.
Both versions are expected to retail at £250 and £185 respectively although Sony has stated that the price will be set by retailers.
