250GB PS3 Slim heading to USA

Sony has confirmed that it will be bringing the 250GB PS3 slim, already confirmed and available in Europe, to the US in November.

"Today, we announced the availability of a new PS3 system with a 250GB hard drive hitting store shelves on November 3". Sony wrote on its company blog. "The PS3 250GB system has the same slim look, feel and features as the 120GB system, but with a 250GB built-in hard drive for $349.99. With the new, larger capacity, you’ll have even more room to store your favourite games, movies/TV shows, music, photos and PlayStation Network downloads".

The US arm has also stated that "more than 600 million pieces of content have been downloaded from PlayStation Network" to date.

In the UK the 250GB bundle costs £339 from Amazon and includes two games, 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.
