We can't really call it the PS3 Slim since, well, Sony already launched a slim variant of their original console. This time around, the folks at the PlayStation Blog (the official outlet of Sony's North American PlayStation arm) are just calling it the "new PlayStation 3" or the "smaller, lighter PlayStation 3."
The console was announced as part of Sony's Tokyo Game Show presentation that happened last night.
Say hello, ladies and gentlemen, to the newest hardware refresh for Sony's PlayStation 3.
Two different versions of this new model will ship: a 250GB version and a 500GB version. Sony will also take to creating bundles for fans to swoon over. One will feature Uncharted 3's Game of the Year Edition and another will sport the likes of Assassin's Creed III.
The 250GB PlayStation 3 will run gamers $269 and be part of the Uncharted 3 bundle. This will release on September 25th.
The 500GB PlayStation 3 will launch on October 30th, come bundled with Assassin's Creed III and it will sell for $299.
Will you be snagging either console?
