A new lighter, less power hungry, 320GB PlayStation 3 model has been revealed.

Sony's website, unearthed by Andriasang, calls the model CECH-3000B.

CECH-3000B units will ship this month in Japan.

The new PS3 costs ¥34,980 (£269).

Specifically, CECH-3000B will gobble 200 watts, weigh 2.6kg and pack a 320GB hard drive. You'll also get a DualShock 3 controller, power cable, AV cable and USB cable.

Arr she's a handsome beast.

CECH-3000B comes in Charcoal Black.

Namco Bandai's Tales of Xillia X Edition PS3 bundle contains a 160GB version of the CECH-3000 hardware. Sony doesn't mention a separate 160GB unit.
