There are 250GB and 500GB versions that will be released throughout the fall
Sony announced that it will release another redesigned version of its
PlayStation 3 console
before the end of the year.
The latest PS3 console will be available in either 250GB and 500GB bundles. The 250GB bundle will come in either black or white and will have "Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception" Game of the Year Edition included. The price tag is set at $269.99.
For those more interested in the 500GB model, it will come in black only alongside the "Assassin's Creed III" release. A price for this bundle hasnt been announced yet.
So what's the redesign exactly? The upcoming PS3 will be 25 percent slimmer than the last redesign, and will be a full 50 percent slimmer than the original PS3.
The black 250GB bundle will be available on September 25 while the white version will be released November 22. The black 500GB PS3 will hit store shelves October 30.

"Upgrade" being used very loosely.
Neither the new or old "slim" have the same functionality as the original - PS2 compatibility being the biggest omission.
Also this new slim device is a top load unit instead of a slot load like the previous models. Because of that it may not be as convenient in many entertainment centers. The BR-ROM drive is also said to be louder than the previous model due to the redesign of the disk loading.
If it sold for $199 I might be tempted to pick one up. At $270 it still feels a bit too pricey.
And WTF with no HDMI cable in the box?? This is 2012.
