PS3 12 GB Base System Sold Out Online - New Redesign Finally Incoming at E3?

Walmart has none in stock right now online. Neither does Gamestop. Amazon has them, but they all appear to be sold from 3rd party sellers at a markup price. Target doesn't have any in stock either.

With the base model virtually MIA across the board does this mean Sony has stopped making the model? If so are they giving up on the PS3 for PS4 adoption or could this mean the finally much often rumored cell shrink for a new PS3 model is incoming at E3?

Both 360 and PS3 are in need of another smaller and especially cheaper model. I really hope we will be hearing about them at E3.

Sony and IBM were working on a major shrinkage of the cell. In theory that would mean a much cheaper PS3 if the dots were connected correctly.

They really need a 64-128GB model at 150$ considering how low sales have sunk.

PS3 definitely needs a price cut. Would love to see a mini-PS3 at E3. (though my regular slim serves me just fine).

I think the Cell and RSX have been the same size in the last two slims so if they have managed to finally get over that hurdle, new slim is on the cards.

Doesn't matter. He got modded for his insults anyways.

I don't think a new model is needed, but I wouldn't mind if Sony makes a PS3 model matching the design of the PS4 (I believe there's also a 4K movie player they make with it), sort of like how MS made the 360 E to match the X1.

i prefer the superslim ps3 look compared to the ps4.... i would hope they do not change it to that design.
