The PlayStation 3 is slimming down for the winter. Sony has announced that a new slimmer PS3 will be available in either charcoal black or classic white in North America starting in September. There will be two models (a third with 12 GB of flash memory is a Europe-only release) released in new bundles: a 250GB model launching September 25 for $269 with a copy of Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception Game of the Year Edition and Dust 514 pre-installed with a $30 voucher for DLC, and a 500GB model launching October 30 for $299 with a copy of Assassin’s Creed III.
The new models will have a sliding disk cover and come in at less than half the weight of the launch PS3, which is equivalent to being around 20-25% lighter than the current model. Sony will also be introducing a vertical stand for the new models, which will be required if gamers wish to stand the new models vertically.
