The new Sony PS3 console is approximately 20% smaller and 25% lighter than the current PS3. Sony also changed the overall design of the PS3 making it a bit cooler. Sony will offer the new PS3 with 250GB and 500GB hard-drives.
The new 250GB Sony PS3 will be available on September 25th for $269.99 (MSRP) as part of a limited edition bundle featuring UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception: Game of the Year Edition and a voucher for more than $30 worth of bonus digital content for the highly acclaimed digital title, DUST 514. This bundle offers more than $70 in total combined value.
The new 500GB Sony PS3 will be available in a limited edition bundle on October 30th in conjunction with the release of Assassin’s Creed III.
Apparently the only way to buy the new slim Sony PS3 is within a limited edition bundle.
