Sony Corp.'s U.S game division this week said that it will sell a Playstation 3 250GB SKU in the U.S. on Nov. 3.
The 250GB SKU will carry an MSRP of $349.99.
The PS3 250GB model had been previously announced to be released in Japan and Europe.
The hardware will carry the new form factor of the PS3 Slim.
"The PS3 platform is poised for a tremendous holiday season," said Scott A. Steinberg, vice president, product marketing, SCEA.
"We kicked things off early with the new price point and sleek form factor and have continued the momentum with this week’s launch of the universally acclaimed exclusive, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. The new 250GB PS3 provides consumers with another compelling hardware option and speaks to the growing consumer appetite for digital content from the PlayStation Network – particularly high-def content that showcases the power of the PS3 system."
In Japan, Sony will release a PS3 250GB SKU that includes Square Enix Co.'s Final Fantasy XIII in Dec.
In Europe, several 250GB bundles will be sold at retail in Oct., including a SKU that includes Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.
Sony in Sept. said the PS3 Slim has sold 1 million units at global retail in three weeks of availability.
The company launched the revamped PS3 in the U.S. on Sept. 1 at $299.99.
