250GB PS3 Slim rumoured

Out next month, apparently

Top three mobile application threats

Sony will launch a more capacious slimline PlayStation 3 next month, a mole has claimed.

The 250GB PS3 Slim will be unveiled at some point next month, a “reliable source” told the Spanish arm of gaming website Eurogamer. It will supposedly retail for around €350 (£308/$509) – roughly €50 more than the existing 120GB model's local price.

Release of a second PS3 Slim with more storage is no great surprise and follows Sony’s existing pattern of previous PS3 launches: the original 20GB and 60GB PS3s were followed by the launch of an 80GB model in mid-2007, for example.

The mole also claimed that the 250GB PS3 Slim will be bundled with footie game Fifa 10 and, in Spain at least, sold exclusively through retailer Game – which also has an arm in the UK.

Sony has already refused to confirm or deny the rumour, so you’ll just have to wait until next month to find out if the mole’s correct. ®
