Sony planning 250GB PS3 Slim bundle for October?

updated 12:55 pm EDT, Thu September 10, 2009

May be exclusive to Europe

A 250GB bundled edition of the PS3 Slim could be available as soon as October, says a Spanish gaming publication. The bundle will allegedly cost 350, and include the EA soccer game FIFA 10. Distribution is expected to be handled exclusively through Game, a major European retailer.

The existence of a 250GB Slim was uncovered in mid-August, when it was covertly approved for the US by the Federal Communications Commission. The current Slim, a 120GB model, is now on sale in America for approximately $299. Aside from featuring a smaller size than earlier PS3s, the console is substantially cheaper.

    do people really care that much about a slightly smaller box ? The other incentives -
    cheaper - surely only an idiot paid more than £250 for the first one. I got a controller and game bundle for that price last year. Shop around people, ebay is your friend.
    Bigger hard drive - replacement hard drives are cheap and easy to install, but still, another welcome, if small, incentive. They've done well to get this much publicity out of such a small update. Mind you, Im no PS3 or gaming guru, I havent played a single game on it in almost a year. They are still in their cellophane wrappers (GT5 prologue, BLP).
