As we progress further and further into the current gen of systems, it is inevitable that the technology used in the original system gets cheaper and faster. Sony has decided to pass those savings down to the customer and with that is the announcement of a new model of PS3. The new PS3 will be available in two different models, a 250GB and 500GB. It also features a new design that is approximately 20% smaller and 25% lighter than the current PS3.
The 250GB PS3 will be available on September 25th for $269.99 as part of a limited edition bundle. It includes a copy of Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception: Game of the Year Edition and a voucher for $30 worth of bonus digital content for Dust 514. The 500GB PS3 will be available in a limited edition bundle with Assassins Creed 3 on October 30th.
