New 250GB PlayStation 3 System Available November 3, 2009
Sony has announced that a new PS3 Slim will be available on November 3rd. It will have a 250GB hardrive and will cost you $349.99.
To quote Sony's PlayStation 3 Marketing Manager Kim Nguyen:
Since we launched the slimmer, lighter 120GB PS3 system, we've sold one million units worldwide within the first three weeks. We know that all of you are really making use of the PS3's hard drive, as more than 600 million pieces of content have been downloaded from PlayStation Network. But if you are the ultimate digital consumer craving a bigger hard drive, we have the perfect solution for you.
Today, we announced the availability of a new PS3 system with a 250GB hard drive hitting store shelves on November 3. The PS3 250GB system has the same slim look, feel and features as the 120GB system, but with a 250GB built-in hard drive for $349.99. With the new, larger capacity, you'll have even more room to store your favorite games, movies/TV shows, music, photos and PlayStation Network downloads.

Sony is getting it done.
Wow thats really awesome. I havent heard anything about that until I read this post. I now wish I waited till November before buying my 120GB unit.
Dont you think they should have waited before reducing the prices? They should have just introduced this model before all that happened. I might be wrong though. Looks like Sony is stepping it up.
I don't like the new ps3 slims at all. The only thing that appeals to me is the larger hard drive but even that I don't really need. My old school 80gig does everything I could want. YDL is taking up 30gig, I have 4 downloaded games, almost 20 disc based, most of which with installed data, countless VMC's and nearly my entire 114 cd collection ripped perfect quality to the HDD and still I have about 18gigs free. All that money for just more memory, albeit a lot more memory just doesn't seem like a good idea. Well, for me anyway.
On the other hand the extra space is cool because with all the data we keep pushing into our ps3s like installations, downloadable content, and whatnot someday we will need to start erasing stuff. There will be games with 5GB + installations, like resident evil 5 and when that day comes you will be looking at larger HDs.
my mother is gonna give one for my birthday!!
Also the ps3 keeps getting better and better with each update, we get frequent surprises, you will not be disappointed I swear
I don't know was there any point to release new playstations with bigger size of hard drives, personally i could buy a bigger size of hard disk than 120gb and stick it in, oh and also interesting thing, the hard drive what my ps3 has in is - TOSHIBA.
i've noticed the ps3 big one, and slim, by the size they doesnt makes any big difference, only slim is bit thiner and worse desing for me. but the heavy one i heard it has bad vent system, realy loud, and using more power than slim.
