New PlayStation 3 Models Announced

Posted on September 18, 2012 AT 09:32pm

Long rumored, finally confirmed, questionably important, but Sony has finally confirmed the existence of a new model of the PlayStation 3. Nearly six years into the console’s lifespan, three new iterations of the PlayStation 3 will be released.

The models?

  • Black, 250 GB
  • Black, 500 GB
  • White, 250 GB (Japan Only)

The black models will be available October 4th in Japan, while the white will be out on November 22nd. They’ll be top-loaders, instead of the slot-driven drives of the previous models. In Japan, they’ll be bundled with a 15th Anniversary release of Hot Shots Golf. Sony continues to describe the bundles available in America.

We are also excited to announce that the launch of this new PS3 model will include incredible additional value. The 250GB PS3 will be available on September 25th for $269.99 (MSRP) 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 the highly acclaimed digital title, DUST 514. This bundle offers more than $70 in total combined value.

The new 500GB PS3 will be available in a limited edition bundle on October 30th in conjunction with the release of Assassin’s Creed III – one of the most anticipated games for this holiday season featuring four exclusive levels, only available on PS3.
