I doubt that would happen. The current model gets hot enough as it is, proving how much processing power is happening under the hood. Downsizing would only be possible by removing key components which wouldn't make any sense for Sony to remove. The slimmed down PS2 had a flip-top dvd tray, which reduced the size of the console drastically. It doesn't look like the PS3 is going to make that jump anytime soon.

If it does get redesigned, I hope it gets a BD tray instead of a slide loader.

I'm a little on the OCD side about that.

I never had a full concern over the slider but something in the back of my head always said "man i hope it doesn't scratch my discs" every time.

I think the only real way to reduce major heat output would be a die shrink of the cell processor or gpu. Man I plan on buying my PS3 in a couple weeks, this would suck for me.

I have my doupt about that.

PSOne: +5 years later
PS2 Slim: 4 years later
PSP Slim: - 3 years (about 33 months if I count starting the Japanese release)

So yest after each console they reduce their time before releasing a slimer version. However reducing the size of the PS3 is a pretty massive challenge. I'd say it won't happen until they reduce the size of the CPU & GPU at least 1 or 2 times.
