Sony 250GB PS3 bundles for UK confirmed

Sony has confirmed that it will be bringing a 250GB version of the new PS3 Slim out in the UK as part of a bundle offering.

Priced at around £285, there will be a range of different bundles on offer in the hope of enticing gamers to sign up with Sony rather than Microsoft's Xbox 360.

"Following the great success of the new, smaller, 120GB PS3, which sold over 1m units worldwide in its first three weeks on sale, the PS3 model with 250 HDD has the same hardware specifications as the current model, but with greater storage space, to offer consumers even more choice," Sony says.

Confirmed bundle titles include FIFA 10 and Need for Speed Shift.

According to gaming magazine CVG, From 1st October a choice of soft bundles containing either 2 x Platinum titles or inFamous will be available.

On 16 October, this range will be expanded to include an Uncharted 2 bundle while the 19 October will see a Blu-ray movie pack launched containing Wolverine, Batman The Dark Knight and a Blu Ray Remote.

Amazon.co.uk is currently listing the PS3 250GB model at £285 without any games for pre-order.
