View Full Version : New PS3-Edition announced (GC)

08-20-2008, 04:58 PM
Auf der Pressekonferenz von Sony im Rahmen der Games Convention wurde angekündigt, dass am 31. Oktober eine Special Edition der PlayStation 3 in Europa veröffentlicht wird. Die Änderungen zur derzeitigen Version belaufen sich auf eine Festplattenvergrößerung um 120GB auf insgesamt 160GB. Zusätzlich gibt es beim Erwerb der Special Edition einen Gutschein für den Store in Höhe von 70€ dazu.

I will say the most important:

There will be a SE-PS3 with awesome 160GB! If you buy it, you will get additional 70€ for the store. Only Europe, but I think there will be also in US a SE. It will be sold on the 31th October

No actually price is been told yet.

Does it look the same?

Don't know. I also don't now if there will be a Controller with it, because it will be sold für 449€ (449 € = $660,79) in EU.

Here is also a new item:

Yeah, it's a minikeyboard like the 360 has.. I should probably invest in one of those.

I don't like that little keyboard, it's too little for my finger, I will press 3 letters at one time :(

And I will write as fast as on a handy, and I write with the Controller faster than with a handy.

So I don't will buy this item

Sorry for double-post, but you in the west will also be happy:

Don't double post.. You could just've easily edited your first post, and you wouldn't have got in trouble for it :S

Yeah I know but edit would not give my topic the attention .. you know what I mean?

"The 160GB PS3 will go on sale for 449 Euros (£355) and the 80GB will retail for 399 Euros (£315), so no one's going to have excuse for not downloading copious amounts of download content. Nothing was mentioned about what USB or card slots the new PS3 would feature, although we expect it to have the same functionality as the 40GB model."

Taken from another forum so not sure about its accuracy.

160 GB seems a bit excessive to me.... but I do like the new controller.

Does anyone have a clue on the price on the PSP-3000 model?

08-20-2008, 10:55 PM
should've included lbp with it. 500 will be a tough sell this holiday

I don't think 160's too large. I'm probably going to go even bigger before LBP comes out.

The deal doesn't seem bad, but slightly pricey for this economy. I think Sony should've gone the other way - give a bare-bones option instead.
