Sony unveiled a smaller, lighter PlayStation 3 at the Tokyo Game Show on Friday, a redesign of its aging console that sports a thinner look and larger hard drive capacities.

Two flavors of the redesigned PS3 arrive this fall in the U.S.: a $ 269 250GB super slim PS3 option lands on September 25 that includes Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception (game of the year edition) and downloadable content for Dust 514; a $ 299 500GB slimmer PS3 version sneaks in on October 30 and comes bundled with Assassin’s Creed III.


The new PS3 comes to the U.S. first in a 250GB Uncharted 3 bundle. Take note of the new silver stand for vertical placement. (Click to enlarge.)
