As expected, there is a newer and slimmer PS3 announced at the Tokyo Game Show, where you have a choice of either a 250GB or a 500GB model. Sporting a shrunken and more streamlined design, it would certainly look stunning in your living room. In fact, the new PS3 is around 20% smaller and 25% lighter than the current model, without sacrificing on all the great gaming experiences you would get with it.
Sony hopes that the new SKUs will be able to help the PS3 hit new highs in terms of sales figures, throwing in additional value to boot. For starters, the 250GB PS3 will arrive this September 25th for $269.99, where it will also be a part of a limited edition bundle that carries UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception: Game of the Year Edition and a voucher for over $30 worth of bonus digital content for highly acclaimed digital title DUST 514, with the total combined value exceeding $70.
As for the new and more spacious 500GB PS3, you will have to play your patience card for a little bit longer, as it will come in a limited edition bundle on October 30th alongside Assassin’s Creed III’s release that looks set to be a PS3 blockbuster this holiday season. Guess the rumors were spot on after all, will you be picking up the new super slim PS3 even though it has Skyrim: Dawnguard issues?
