Sony Reveals New PS3 Model

News Playstation 3 Sony

After all the rumours of a new Playstation 3 model, Sony Computer Entertainment have revealed the long awaited third iteration of the Playstation 3 in a pre-TGS conference moments ago. The new model will come in two colours, black and white, with two sizes for the HDD, 250 GB and 500 GB. The black model will be released on October 4 in Japan for ¥24,980 (250GB) and ¥29,980 (500GB). The white model will be available on November 22 for ¥24,980 (250GB). No 500GB white model will be released.

In addition of the new model announcement, Sony have announced a pack which will include the PS3 re-release of Hot Shots Golf 6, which was released for the Vita at the Vita’s launch. The pack will only be available at the 250GB size, but both colours will be available. It will see a release on November 22 at the price of ¥25,980. There was no word when the new model will see a release in the West. Presumably, only the black model will come on over in both sizes.

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!
