Sony Intros New Lighter PS3 Slim in Japan

Sony has introduced a new lighter PS3 Slim in Japan that also consumes less power. No word on how they shaved almost a pound off the "old" PS3 Slim but feel free to post your ideas in the comments. I was going to make a "hackers probably removed it" joke but it's still too soon. wink

Fresh from the Land of the Rising Sun comes news that Sony has updated the original PS3 Slim (CECH-3001B) with a lighter, less power-hungry model. The new Japanese PS3 CECH-3000B weighs in at 5.7 pounds -- as opposed to its 6.6 pound elder brother -- and even lowers its wattage to 200W from the previous 230W.
