Sony Computer Entertainment America announced that the PS3 system will be offered in North America with 160GB or 320GB Hard Disk Drives, offering more capacity to download games and entertainment content from PlayStation Network along with personal digital content, such as music, photos, and videos.
The new models will continue to offer the same advanced features and functions of the current models, but with approximately 33 percent more capacity and at compelling price points. This increased HDD space addresses the growing demand for the digital content offered on PlayStationNetwork.
At $299.99 (MSRP), the 160GB model PS3 system offers tremendous value to consumers and is now shipping to retailers at the same price as the existing PS3 model. As part of the September 19 launch of PlayStationMove, the new and innovative motion gaming experience that delivers precise, intuitive control, the PS3 Sports Champions Move bundle will introduce the 320GB model PS3 system along with one PlayStationMove motion controller, PlayStationEye camera, a copy of Sports Champions, and bonus Blu-ray game demo disc all in one complete package for $399.99 (MSRP).
"With the launch of PlayStation Move just around the corner, we're expecting many new consumers to join the PlayStation family. The PS3 Sports Champions Move bundle provides those families with everything they need to get into motion control gaming at a great value, with the 320GB model PS3 system as the centerpiece of the package," said Scott A. Steinberg, vice president of product marketing. "Also, as PlayStation Network continues to evolve with exciting new services, the hunger for digital content grows; these larger storage capacities address that demand and encourage consumers to take full advantage of the complete PS3 experience."
