I heard lots of talk that a NEWER, AWESOMER, BETTER PS3 is going to come out? Is this true? And if so, what are some new capabilities of the new PS3?

where did you hear this. if your talking about a ps4 thats not happening anytime soon. if you talking about a newer ps3 the only thing they would add is more roadblocks for hackers

Yeah its called hack free. So sony says. Thats all i heard of. Just get the older ones, cuz soon there will be a price cut for those. Sony wants em off the shelves for the new ones.

Yeah, its the new hack free one. Its basically the same with a bunch of security changes. Its kind of counter productive in my opinion, because they're going to make the hackable consoles cheaper making them easier to obtain and hack away at. I mean, if you're a hacker why would you buy a hack free console when you can have one you can do whatever you want with for a whole lot cheaper?

Nope, it's basically just the same PS3 with hacking security implemented. The whole point of it is to eventually filter out older PS3s.

Am I right to assume that these security changes will also be added into older models via firmware updates? Because that seems like the only way they can make those new security measures count.

I don't think it might be possible.The master keys for the system were in the hardware part of the older PS3s.

Yeah, that's pretty much what I gathered, as well.
