Sony brings 250GB PS3 to US

updated 04:20 pm EDT, Thu October 15, 2009

Slim PS3 with larger drive due Nov. 3

Sony in mid-afternoon revealed that it will launch a 250GB version of the PlayStation 3 in North America. Previously only due for Europe bundled with a game, the US and Canadian version will only include the higher-capacity hard disk, which more than doubles the existing slim PS3's capacity. The extra storage is pitched as a help for downloadable games as well as those who download movies from PSN in HD.

The single DualShock 3 controller and other aspects of the PS3 also remain the same. The system should arrive on at least US shelves November 3rd and will cost only slightly more at $350. Sony hasn't said whether it will produce any software bundles in the US but has traditionally left these to other regions.

Microsoft has also promised a 250GB Xbox 360 but will price it at $399 due to its inclusion of a game and custom artwork.
