Whereas GameStop leaked
details of a 160GB PlayStation 3 model seemingly by accident, online retailer Amazon has notified customers that the new model has "just been announced" (by Amazon, so far) and is now in stock
. The SKU update, which is our favorite kind of PS3 update, retains the 120GB model's price of $299.99.
If the increase in default storage capacity isn't enough to push you off the fence, just remind yourself that there's no fun in missing hot upcoming games like LittleBigPlanet 2
, Killzone 3
and, err, Mass Effect 2
