on September 19, 2012 10:12 AM

At the Tokyo Game Show, Sony took the time to announce a newer slimmer lighter version of the PlayStation 3 is going to be released.

The new system will be available with either a 250GB and 500GB HDD. The new model is also about 20% smaller and 25% lighter then the current PS3 systems at retail.

The 250GB model will be available in a bundle on September 25th for $269.99. Included in the bundle are Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception: Game of the Year Edition, same time the game is released at retail, and a voucher for $30 worth of digital content for DUST 514.

A 500GB limited edition bundle will release on October 30th with Assassin’s Creed III.

With a release of a new smaller system, now is the perfect time for those that have not purchased a PS3 to consider it.
