Sony confirms 160GB PS3 imminent

1TB model next?

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

Updated The 80GB PlayStation 3 lands in Blighty tomorrow, but if you’re a storage-hungry gamer then hold your horses - Sony’s just announced a PS3 with double that capacity.

Sony unveiled the 160GB PS3 to delighted gamers last night at the ongoing Leipzig games developers convention. The electronics giant said the monster-capacity console is perfect for gaming fans and those who like to keep music, videos and the kitchen sink all in one place.

The console will arrive in UK shops on 31 October for a mighty €450 (£355).

Americans won't be able to get their mitts on it until November, when it will debut for $500.

It’s worth remembering that gamers equipped with a screwdriver can already remove the PS3’s hard drive and replace it at will.

That said, if you do buy Sony’s new 160GB PS3 then you’ll also get €70 ($130/£55) worth of PlayStation Network Store credit.

The 160GB PS3 will officially cost £340 in the UK.
