Sony Announces New PS3 Models and Pricing At Tokyo Game Show Press Conference


The Tokyo Game Show 2012 is underway in Japan and just recently Sony has utilized the event to announce their new PS3 models. Available in two different models, sporting a 250 GB HDD as well as a 500 GB HDD model allowing end users to store an incredible amount of digital content, the new PS3 models are smaller (20% smaller & 25% lighter than the current slim model) with a sleek streamlined design.

Prior to this announcement, many speculated that Sony would in fact enter the $199 range with the PS3 in order to combat Microsoft’s hot selling 4GB HDD model currently valued at $199, however it seems Sony is looking to continue making a profit off each console by staying above the $200 range.  The newly announced 250GB PS3 will come available on September 25th for the price of $269.99 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 DUST 514.

The 500GB PS3 will also be a limited edition bundle available on October 30th, the same launch day of the highly anticipated Assassin’s Creed III which I might add offers 4 exclusive levels only on the PS3. A Assassin’s Creed III PS3 500 GB HDD bundle sure does sounds tempting right about now.
