Sony confirms 160GB, 320GB PS3s coming to Blighty

Will oust current models

Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

Sony has confirmed a 160GB PlayStation 3 is on its way, along with a 320GB model too.

Both consoles will go on sale over here in October and replace the current 120GB and 250GB versions, respectively. They will cost the same too: £250 and £285.

The announcement comes as no surprise. Sony launched the new models in Japan last month, and it was only a matter of time before they became more widely available.

Sony will ship the new models here a month or so after releasing its Wii-style motion control rig, PlayStation Move, which is set to arrive on 15 September. Pity anyone who rushes out at launch and buys both console and new controller... only to find they could get a more capacious machine had they waited a while. ®
