Documents filed with the FCC appear to show a super-thin Playstation 3, reports Pocket News (we found out about this via BGR).

These documents refer to the gaming system as the “CECH-4001x” model, and video game publication EuroGamer says it has heard will be released at Gamescom in Germany next month.

Eurogamer suspects that the newly-revised Playstation 3 is a way for the company to breathe life into its product and bring some late adopters on board.
