Sony unveils 'smaller, lighter' PS3 at TGS


Well, it may not be the next-gen PS4 console we are all hoping for, but during the Tokyo Game Show Sony unveiled a brand new PlayStation 3 model that is approximately 20% smaller and 25% lighter than the current PS3. 

The new, sleeker-looking PS3 comes in two different models: a 250GB and 500GB HDD. It will come in "charcoal black", but Japan will get a special "classic white" option.
