Sony will skip the opportunity to reveal a new model PS3 at gamescom 2012, according to a report.
The slimline PS3-4000 has been rumoured for a while but won't be a feature of Sony's 14 August press event a source told VG247.
The revised console had been set for a gamescom reveal, but Sony is said to have delayed the announcement due to high stock levels of the current model.
The story also suggests that rumours of a 16GB Flash memory version are accurate, and that consumers can expect a drop in price to as low as £99 when it launches.
