Sony Corp. this week said it will sell a new redesigned slim Playstation 3 in the U.S. beginning in late Sept.
The new PS3 model CECH-4000 will be sold in 250GB Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception Bundle SKU at $269.99 Sept. 25 and a 500GB SKU at $299.99 Oct. 30.
An additional model that includes 12GB flash memory will be sold in the European market Oct. 12.
Sony in July said the company’s game division, which includes the Playstation business, incurred a $45 million loss on revenue of $1.5 billion in the first quarter amid declining sales of consoles and handhelds.
By comparison, the division held a $52.3 million profit in the same quarter one year ago.
The Playstation 3 and Playstation 2 sold a combined 2.8 million units in the quarter, down from 3.2 million from one year prior.
