Sony Announces New PlayStation 3

Sony, the leading manufacturers for consumer electronics, announced its redesigned PlayStation 3 at the Tokyo Game Show in Japan. The new version includes larger hard drives and a new flash-based model for the UK.  It is also 25% smaller than the previous design and 50% smaller than the original playstation design that was launched seven years ago. It also features a sliding disc cover on the top of the console instead of a slot-loading mechanism.

With no change in the processing speed, the storage capacity of 320GB model is increased to 500GB and the 160GB model has been increased to 250GB.

The global rollout of new PlayStation 3 starts from September 25 in North America, where the 250 gigabyte version will sell for $269. The other version sells for $299 from October 30. In Japan, the models go on sale Oct. 4 for 29,980 yen ($380) and 24,980 yen ($316).

Hiroshi Kawano, who heads Sony’s game business in Japan, said the networking feature of PlayStation 3 allows users to enjoy millions of tunes, karaoke at home and a growing library of movies.

“Even after six years, the PlayStation 3 has not lost momentum and continues to deliver powerful home entertainment,” he said at a Tokyo hall.

  1. I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and
    engaging, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail
    on the head. The issue is something too few folks are
    speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy that I found this during my hunt for something regarding this.
