250Gb PS3 is too late for me!

SONY has finally confirmed the rumours are true about a 250Gb PS3 - but that won't really affect me, as I've just upgraded my original 60Gb version to a 250Gb!

Sony said: “Following the great success of the new, smaller, 120GB PS3, which sold over one million units in its first three weeks on sale, the 250GB model has the same hardware specifications as the current model, but with greater storage space, to offer consumers even more choice.”

From October 1, fans can spend £284.99 for a bundle containing a choice of two Platinum Hits or a copy of the PS3 exclusive superhero outing, inFamous. T
But from October 16, the bundle initiative will be expanded to include Naughty Dog’s hotly anticipated sequel, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.

As a long-time PS3 user, I would certainly recommend that the bigger the hard drive, the better. That's why I upgraded my 60Gb version (something that was easier than I thought it would be), as you soon use up space.

I was down to my last gig and a half, so the upgrade was worth it!

PS3 sales go through the roof

GREAT News for PS3 sales - they are rocketing!

I picked this bit of news from Playstation ThEvolution website, which will be great for everyone who wants to see the PS3 finally catch up the Xbox 36o and Wii:

"According to, since the release of the PS3 Slim, sales have skyrocketed to over 1000%, no we did not make a mistake and add an extra zero, you read that correctly.

Not only has Sony been moving PS3’s at a frantic pace, PS3 software sales have also experienced a boost. Software sales have increased by 17 per cent and this is evident with the recent release of BATMAN: Arkham Asylum which shows the PS3 versions edging out it Xbox 360 counterpart in total units sold.

Despite the recent Xbox 360 price drop of the Elite model which has experienced sales to increase by 43%, Sony’s PS3 has still managed to outsell the Xbox 360 and also Nintendo’s Wii and DS units by approximately 3:1.

“I think what I’ve heard anecdotally is that this is the point people were waiting for - a redesigned model and, in Euros, a significant price reduction,” said Andrew House, president of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe. “That’s people’s cue to jump into the business.”

These current sales numbers bold well for Sony going into the holiday months. With the upcoming release of exclusive titles in the form of UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves, DEMONS SOUL’S, GRAN TURISMO 5 and the re-release of GOD OF WAR 1 & 2 on Blu-ray for the PS3, not to mention the highly anticipated multiplatform shooter MODERN WARFARE 2, the holiday are looking very exciting on the PS3 front."
