Available This Fall: New PS3 System Models Featuring 160GB & 320GB Hard Drives

John Koller's Avatar Posted by Vice President, PlayStation Brand Marketing, SIEA

Hi everyone! If you’re like me and use your PS3 to store all your favorite digital content, larger storage capacity is a must. This fall, we’re introducing two new models of the PS3 system– a 320GB PS3 system, which will be included in the PS3 Sports Champions Move bundle; as well as a 160GB PS3 system, which will be available as a standalone. These new higher capacity models will continue to offer the same advanced features and functions of the current models, but with approximately 33 percent more capacity and at compelling price points.

PlayStation 3 - 160GB Model

The 160GB PS3 system brings you more storage for the same price as the previous model — $299.99 (MSRP) — and is shipping to retailers nationwide now. The 320GB PS3 system will hit store shelves on September 19, in conjunction with the launch of PlayStation Move. It will be part of the PS3 Sports Champions Move bundle, which includes one PlayStation Move motion controller, PlayStation Eye camera, a copy of Sports Champions on Blu-ray disc, and bonus Blu-ray game demo disc– all in one complete package for $399.99 (MSRP). The value included in this bundle is incredible and we know this will further add to the exceptionally high demand for the new platform.

PlayStation 3 - 320GB Move Bundle

These new, larger hard drives mean more room for storing all the great content that PlayStation offers: thousands of games, movies, TV shows, as well as your personal photos, videos, music and so much more. There’s never been a more convenient, cost effective way to join the PlayStation family and bring the future of entertainment into your living room.

Next month is set to be a historic one for us here at PlayStation – you’ll be able to pick up high capacity PS3 systems and come September 19, you’ll be able to purchase PlayStation Move, the new and innovative motion gaming experience for the PS3 system that delivers the most realistic and immersive high-definition gaming experience ever created. The future of gaming has arrived and PlayStation is the force behind these innovations.

I still think the origional 60gb ps3’s are the best, why do people keep buying new consoles just because they have a bigger hdd. Just buy a bigger hdd and replace the old one. ???

How about actually dropping the price instead of always adding HDD space and keeping the price the same?

I’ve been without a PS3 for over a year now ever since my 20GB model got the ylod. 360 has been more than enough in the mean time.

But I’ll buy it again once it hits the sub $300 price. At this stage of the generation your the only console to still be in the $300 range. We should be seeing the PS3 hit the $250 range by now….

It be awesome if you guys did something similar to the 360 slim and sell one for $199 with a very small hard drive. I could just throw in my own 250 GB hard drive I already have in it.

What is the point of upgrading your PS3’s hard-drive which is never fully used ?
Sony – Are you trying doing sth st*p*d like MS’s Xbox360 ?
I could understand why Xbox360 HD needs more capacity ’cause its games could be installed in hard-drive for balance of its weakness. But PS3 is different story, Bluray disc run without any problems so far, SO why keep making another ones with bigger HD ? Why not making PS3 with backward compatibility ? There some PS2 games I’d like to try out, and I know that there are alot of people would like this idea as much as I do. Why can PS games be played on PS3 but PS2 games cannot ?
To me, I owned 120GB PS3 and newest Xbox360, there is no reason to buy something having same function like old ones. It’s a waste of money, guys !!! Or Sony, if you’re gonna produce new system, shall you take notice of CPU and GPU or function next time, HD is fine with 250GB, don’t add more for the sake of the Earth. (*_ *!

Blows my mind why they keep upping the storage. Why not just drop the price point and let the user decide when they want to upgrade their HDD. Isn’t that the reason the PS3 has an easy access HDD slot? I think most people would rather pay $50 less for a smaller HDD than more for a bigger HDD. Total backwards thinking Sony. Totally backwards.
