‘Just Announced’ 160GB PS3 Slim spotted on GameStop


ps3-160Has GameStop jumped the gun again? The retailer has posted and hastily pulled a listing for a “just announced” 160GB PS3 Slim.

Before disappearing, the listing reportedly had the 160GB Slim priced at US$ 299.99, the same price that the 120GB model has now.

Aside from the standard retail pack, a US$ 404.97 God of War 3 bundle containing the game and two controllers as well as a US$ 379.97 Accessory Bundle with two controllers and a Bluetooth remote were also being offered.

Sony hasn’t announced anything yet, but notice the “Just Announced” label on the pic. Sony is having its Gamescom conference later today, though, so perhaps some GameStop employee got the dates mixed up.

Update its been confirmed by

James Gallagher: There’s a 320 GB PS3 available at 349 Euro and a 160 GB for 299.

Which is what he said in the Live blog. So thoughts on the new bundles?

    I don’t understand why they keep wasting there time with really big HDDs. People don’t need that much space and if they do they can buy it themselves.

    @UbeRamza: Well, changing your PS3 HDD can be a problem down the road what with all the updates Sony likes to send out that mess up your updated HDD.

    I got a 120 GB Slim and only have 5 GB left so now I need to delete a lot of things to make room for the install of new games.
