New PS3 Model Confirmed For Australian, European Release

Sony Playstation 3 News

With the news of a new PS3 model still fresh, the Australian arm of Sony Computer Entertainment have confirmed that the new PS3 model will hit the shores of Australia and New Zealand with a slight difference. Both colours will be available on September 27, which happens to be next Thursday. Europe will have to wait until September 28 for the super slim model.  A 500GB model for both colours will be available at the price of AU$399.95.

The slight difference is the fact that a 250GB model will not be released. Instead, a 12GB flash memory model will be released in both colours for AU$299.95. This will be throughout the Europe and PAL regions. For those who do want the 250GB space, Sony will release a separate HDD alongside the release of the new model. Pricing has yet to be determined for the standalone 250GB HDD. No bundled in games have been announced for Australia or New Zealand, but Europe will receive FIFA 13 with the 500GB model.


Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
