By on
Hoping to steal the spotlight back from Microsoft's updated Xbox 360, Sony unveiled two new PlayStation 3 models during Gamescom today. One of the packages seems to be a regular old PS3 Slim with 160GB of storage instead of 120GB, and it's already available online with the same $300 price tag. The second a $400 bundle that's coming September 19 and includes a 320GB PS3, the Move motion controller and Eye camera, as well as a copy of Sports Champion and a demo disc.

Sony also used the venue to announce various video-related additions to the PS3. The console will soon be able to watch Netflix without a disc, Hulu Plus has entered beta with a public launch due early next year, and the company showed Mubi, another film streaming service that PC World describes as a mash-up of Facebook, Twitter and Netflix.


Naturally, there's a ton of game news too. There's new trailers/gameplay footage for Infamous 2, LittleBigPlanet 2, Killzone 3 and others, Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One and Resistance 3 were confirmed, Virtua Tennis 4 will be in 3D (Uncharted 3 might be), MAG is getting Move support, and Gran Turismo 5 will launch in Europe November 3.
