As has been rumoured, SCE UK has confirmed that a brand new 250GB variant of its Slim PS3 is heading to retail with a number of bundles based on some of the console’s most popular software releases.
Arriving on October 1st, the initial offering will include any two of Sony’s Platinum game collection or Sucker Punch’s infamous. This will be joined on October 16th by a bundle including the anticipated Uncharted 2: Amongst Thieves.
As previously reported by MCV, a Blu-ray Movie Pack is also on the way that includes copies of X-Men Origins: Wolverine and The Dark Knight, as well as Sony’s Blu-ray remote control.
Each pack will retail for £284.99, representing a £35 premium over the cost of the standard PS3 Slim SKU.
Sony's move mirrors that of Microsoft, which recently announced a pair of Xbox 360 250GB bundles.
“The 250GB PS3, with its larger storage capacity, will allow owners to take full advantage of the incredible software line-up and the many multimedia functions available on PS3, whether that is storing and viewing your family photographs, listening to your entire music collection in crisp quality, or watching your favourite home videos or TV shows,” a Sony statement reads.
“More storage allows you to download more of the latest games and add-ons from PlayStation Store, as well as movies in both HD and SD from the PlayStation Network video delivery service when it launches later this year, without worrying about running out of space.”
