Even slimmer PS3 out next week

Flash storage version inbound too

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Sony has introduced the expected new, slimmer, curvier PlayStation 3 and pledged to put it on sale next week.

Sony PS3 Even Slimmer

The PS3 Even Slimmer takes up just three-quarters of the space the PS3 Slim does. It'll come in 12GB and 500GB capacities, Sony said today at the console revamp's Tokyo Game Show debut.

The former contains Flash storage only - though Sony will offer a 250GB HDD add-on. It's aimed at folk keen to use the PS3 as a media player.
