Sony will bundle the anticipated 250GB slim PlayStation 3 with its PlayTV DVR add-on, it has been claimed.

A "leading retailer" has let slip that Sony will unveil the 250GB PS3 Slim at Japan’s upcoming Tokyo Games Show – which takes place between 24 and 27 September - according to a report by gaming website MCV.

The retailer added that Sony will also bundle a Blu-ray oriented remote control and a Blu-ray Disc in with the console.

When rumours of a 250GB PS3 Slim first emerged last week, it was claimed that Sony would throw a copy of footie game Fifa 10 in with the console.

Although the retailer didn’t say when the PlayTV bundle will appear or how much it will cost, it’s widely believed that the offer will appear before Christmas, priced at around €350 (£308/$509). ®
