While not the PlayStation 4 announcement that many were clamoring for, Sony announced at Tokyo Game Show that they will be releasing an even SLIMMER model of the PlayStation 3 stateside on September 25th. The console boasts a 250 GB hard drive and will be bundled with the Game of the Year edition of Uncharted 3 and access to additional content for recently the recently released PSN shooter, Dust 514. The bundle has an MSRP of $269. Sony has also said that standalone consoles will be available for purchase down the line for $249 but that the initial launch will be bundled units only.
Sony also confirmed a 500GB model that’s slated for release in late October and that there are plans for an additional bundle to be priced and detailed later. Additionally, the console will be available in black and white, the latter of which will initially be only in Japan with releases in other regions to follow suit.

For those of you all who don’t have a PlayStation 3 yet or are looking to go slim, do you have any interest in picking up this model? Also, whats your opinion of the redesign and do you feel that it’s a bit late in the PS3’s lifespan to be simply doing a remodel rather than giving the gaming populace news of a new console?
