Sony have announced a new slimmer and lighter PS3 which will hit UK shelves on the 28th of September.
The space in the console has also shot up, you now get 500GB of storage space. This is in response to the growing list of full downloadable games available on the Playstation store.
There will be a new “family friendly” version too which will have 12GB of storage space. This is meant for those who just buy the disc version of games and watch Blu-Ray’s. This version will be available on 12th of October.
This new model is now 25 percent lighter and 20 percent smaller. It’ll replace the current model of PS3.
Discs don’t get sucked into the console anymore, instead there is a sliding disc cover on the top. This is of course to make the console slimmer, even if it isn’t as cool as before.
The 500GB model will supposedly sell for £240 and the 12GB model will sell for £183. None of these prices are officially confirmed but those are the kind of price points we might expect.
