New PlayStation 3 Model Hits the FCC - Sony's New Hack-Proof PS3's?
Despite failing to keep their PlayStation Network secure, Sony
may be be close to completely securing their PlayStation 3
console. Today, FCC filings have surfaced of a new PlayStation 3 model, which is utilizing the model numbers CECH-3001A/B
. Earlier this year, we reported
that Sony was planning the release of a new PS3 console which was immune to jailbreaking and custom firmware. Based on these recent FCC filings, speculation would say these recent models are likely this new generation of "hack proof" PS3 consoles. Very little is currently revealed by the FCC filings, but we'll bring you more information as it becomes available.
Today, a mysterious FCC filing by Sony revealed a new version of the Sony PlayStation 3
with the model numbers CECH-3001A/B. This appears to be a new generation of the PlayStation 3, given that the original PS3 and PS3 Slim were part of the CECH 2xxx series.
FCC filings reveal little about the device, other than the label location picture, above. Test reports do confirm the presence of Bluetooth and WiFi, as well as a hard disk drive.
The CECH-3001 PS3 model number has appeared online as early as December 2010
. However, Sony has not provided any information about the new device, nor do we know how it will differ from older PS3 models.
This one is still developing. We’ll provide updates as we learn more.
