As expected, Sony has introduced a new model of Playstation 3. This model will have an MSRP of $349.99, and will come equipped with a 250GB hard drive, instead of the standard 120GB drive.
For $50, you get nothing more than some extra hard drive space – No “System Seller” games like Uncharted 2 are included, nor is even a second controller. Of course, an entire 250GB hard drive costs roughly the same anyway, so I really don’t see why this model even exists.
I guess something just didn’t feel right to Sony, not having the most expensive video game console. That won’t be the case for long though, as Microsoft will also be selling a 250GB version of their console. This one costs $399.99, but comes with a copy of Modern Warfare 2 and a pretty damn cool paint job (and an extra controller).
Off to update the PS3 Model Guide again.
