Press Release (EU): Sony Computer Entertainment Europe Announces Bundles for PlayStation 3 with 250GB Hard Disk Drive

24/09/2009 10:17 - Sony Computer Entertainment Europe today announced a line-up of PlayStation®3 (PS3™) bundles for the holiday season, consisting of a PS3 with a 250GB hard disc drive (HDD) and one of a selection of software and content, including FIFA 10 and Need for Speed™ Shift. The bundles will be available throughout retail in Europe October 2009

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.

The PS3 system with 250GB HDD, with its larger storage capacity, will allow owners to take full advantage of the incredible software line-up and the many multimedia functions available on PS3, whether that is storing and viewing your family photographs, listening to your entire music collection in crisp quality, or watching your favourite home videos or TV shows.

More storage allows you to download more of the latest games and add-ons from PlayStation®Store, as well as movies in both HD and SD from the PlayStation®Network video delivery service when it launches later this year, without worrying about running out of space.

I'm just curious... All I keep hearing is how the PS3's overheat... I never had a problem with mine and I keep it on for HOURS at a time. A buddy of mine said anything over 3 hours can cause damage. Like I said.. I never experienced this and when I first got mine I got the game Oblivion and played for over 16 hours on the first day and many days after without problems.

What I am curious about is the new slim look. Will this give it less room to breathe causing it to overheat? Or has this new design fixed this mysterious flaw?

I am looking forward to this being released in Australia. I have an original 60gb console and i would like another one for my room..

A white ps3 sounds really awesome, but I'd rather not have Lightning on it, and put something on myself. It looks nice and all, but I prefer a clean canvas. When I read it was an FFXIII bundle, I thought it would be a PS3 + game bundle, which is way more appealing to me as I'm saving for a PS3 and for the game. Together would have been great
