Sony Announces New, Bigger PS3
Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) announced Wednesday its plans to release a new 160GB Playstation 3 system in North America. The new model will come bundled with the popular game, Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, a Playstation Network voucher for the game Pain, and a Dualshock 3 wireless controller.
“As Playstation Network continues to evolve with our recently launched video delivery service and more exclusive games, PS3 owners are demanding more storage capacity,” Jack Tretton, president and CEO, SCEA, said as part of the announcement. “Consumers also are utilizing PS3 as an entertainment hub for their digital media, placing content such as their entire music collection on the hard drive.”
Sony plans on releasing the new model this November for $499.99 (MSRP). In addition, Sony has announced plans to launch a new Playstation Portable, the PSP-3000, featuring an advanced LCD that improves the display which is set for an October release.
