PlayStation 3 250GB model announced for November

ps3-250gb-announced

It finally happened. Just as inevitable as the PlayStation 3 120GB model was is the today announced 250GB model. Keeping in tact with the new slim look the 120GB model received, the 250GB model will sell for $349.99 ($50 more) and launch in North America on November 3rd.

“The PS3 platform is poised for a tremendous holiday season,” said Scott A. Steinberg, vice president, product marketing, SCEA. “We kicked things off early with the new price point and sleek form factor and have continued the momentum with this week’s launch of the universally acclaimed exclusive, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. The new 250GB PS3 provides consumers with another compelling hardware option and speaks to the growing consumer appetite for digital content from the PlayStation Network – particularly high-def content that showcases the power of the PS3 system.”

New PlayStation 3 owners may want to consider this bigger size. Especially considering game installs and whatever movies, music and photos you need to store on your system.
