It’s been rumored for awhile, but Sony has finally announced a new slimmed down model of the PS3, of which will feature a sliding disc cover. The console is pictured at the foot of this story.

The company revealed the new console model at their Tokyo Game Show press conference, and also tried their best to let the world know how lighter and thinner the new build is. At 2.1kg, It’s apparently half as heavy as the bulkier original PS3 model, while also being 25% smaller and 20% smaller than the PS3 Slim.

There will be two models of the Super Slim available, although only one when it first goes on sale from September 28th. First up, then, is the 500GB model, of which will come included bundled with a game, with the likes of FIFA 13, Assassin’s Creed 3 and Wonderbook: Book of Spells being some of the choices. On October 12th, a 12GB flash memory model of the Super Slim will follow, with a 250GB hard-drive going on sale at the same time.

The price of the Super Slim has been left up to retailers here in the UK.
