Sony Computer Entertainment [Country] Announces

Tokyo, 24th September 2009: Sony Computer Entertainment today announced a line-up of PlayStation®3 (PS3™) bundles for the holiday season, consisting of a PS3 with a 250GB hard disc drive and one of a selection of software and content, including FIFA 10 and Need for Speed™ Shift . The bundles will be available throughout retail in October 2009.

Following the great success of the new, smaller, 120GB PS3, which sold over 1m units in its first three weeks on sale, the 250GB model has the same hardware specifications as the current model, but with greater storage space, to offer consumers even more choice. 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. 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.
