Sony Announces a New PS3 Model

Sony just released the data of a new PS3 model to be released this month. The new console (CECH-3000B) will retain the same hardware characteristics of the old one, but will feature reduced weight (2.6 Kg instead of the previous 3.2) and lower power consumption (200W instead of 230). The new model will also include a 320 GB hard disk.

A special version of the new PS3 will be released bundled with Tales of Xillia in Japan, dubbed the “Tales of Xillia X Edition”, but will include a 160 GB hard drive instead of the 320 one. No stand-alone 160 GB model has been announced so far. See it after the jump.
