A "Super Slim" PlayStation 3 line has been announced by Sony. The two models, a 250GB and 500GB will be half the weight and size of the original PS3 and will be available in both black and white. In North America, the 250 GB bundle will be out on September 25 for $249 and the 500 GB bundle will be out on October 30 for $299.
Sony boasts that it has completely redesigned the internal design architecture, and the internal volume and weight of the new PS3 is reduced by more than half compared to the very first PS3 model with a 60GB HDD, and by 20% and 25% respectively compared to the current PS3. By adopting a sliding disk cover, the new PS3 continues with the PS3 body design.
