The Japanese retailer says that the new model will be lighter, going from 3.0kg to 2.6kg and will consume 30 less watts of power, going from 230W to 200W.

There also appears that there will be a few changes to the system’s shell as well, with Sony reportedly altering the power and eject buttons, as well as removing the LED lamps.

The retailer says the system will ship with a 320 gigabyte hard drive, but the price for the new system will be the same as the current equivalent model.
