Following recent rumours, Sony UK has this week confirmed that it will launch a range of 250GB PlayStation 3 bundles starting on October 1st.

Sony's revised console, often dubbed the PlayStation 3 Slim, currently ships with a 120GB hard drive as standard. The higher capacity 250GB model will be introduced as part of special edition bundles priced at £285.

Launching on October 1st, the first bundle will include a 250GB console and either a copy of Sucker Punch Productions' Infamous or two alternative platinum titles.

On October 16th, a second 250GB bundle will be made available with a copy of Naughty Dog's Infamous 2. The third and last-confirmed bundle will launch on October 19th and will include a Blu-ray remote control and two Blu-ray movies; The Dark Knight and Wolverine.

Sony's announcement comes shortly after Microsoft unwrapped 250GB versions of its Xbox 360 console.

So, people will not buy the 120GB and go straight to the 250GB one. Lot of unsold 120GB ones are going to be around/.
Urgh it's still too expensive for me to consider, roll on Christmas price drops?!

Nah, it'll still sell well, just look at the 360 Core/Arcade.
Whats the need for such large hard drives on consoles. I have an Xbox360 Arcade and use it for playing games and don't require a hard drive. I know I can download films and stuff but I have my PC too for this. But 250GB for storing films seems a little excessive.
