PS3 40GB Spiderman Leaked

Sony's 40GB PlayStation 3 is real, the electronics maker has inadvertently revealed through a UPC barcode. While a public listing for the device confirms its existence only through the manufacturer, a Best buy employee's search for the same barcode turns up a 40GB PS3 at the previously rumored $400 price point, according to Engadget. Despite the price drop, the new system would also come bundled with a Blu-Ray copy of Spiderman 3 to help showcase the console's HD features and drive sales during the holidays.

Entered into the retailer's systems on October 1st, the leak would point to an in-stock date for the lower-cost PS3 of October 28th. This is slightly longer than two weeks after Sony's heavily rumored "big bang" event on October 12th, which has been suggested as the most likely announcement date for a revision of the PS3 line. That same leak would have Sony reduce the price of the 80GB PS3 to $500 once supplies of the launch-era 60GB model had run out.
