Straight out of Leipzig today comes the announcement that a new 120GB Playstation 3 will be hitting shelves in the U.S. in November. Included in the $499 bundle is a DualShock3 controller, Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, and a voucher to download PAIN from the PSN.
“As PLAYSTATION Network continues to evolve with our recently launched video delivery service and more exclusive games, PS3 owners are demanding more storage capacity,” said Jack Tretton, president and CEO, SCEA. “Consumers also are utilizing PS3 as an entertainment hub for their digital media, placing content such as their entire music collection on the hard drive. The 160GB PS3 system addresses this growing consumer demand in a compelling bundle that delivers significant value.”
The main problem with this model is the lack of PS2 backwards compatibility. Otherwise, this bundle will make more than a few gamers very happy this holiday season.
