Following speculation that a 'slim' model was in the pipeline Sony officially announced the PS3 CECH-2000 on August 18, 2009 at the Sony Gamescom press conference.

The PS3 slim will also include support for BRAVIA Sync allowing control of the console over HDMI and will run quieter than previous models but no longer has the ability to install third party operating systems such as Linux. The PS3 slim will be priced at $299/€299/£249/¥29980 and is scheduled to be released on September 1, 2009 in North America, Europe and Australia and on September 3, 2009 in Japan and New Zealand.
