Sony introduced two new PS3 models at Gamescom, including one bundled with the company’s forthcoming ‘Move’ motion control peripheral, and packing a whopping 320GB hard drive.
The Move bundle, called the PS3 Sports Champion Move Bundle, will include one wand controller, a copy of Sports Champion, the PlayStation Eye camera, and a Blu-ray game demo disc. All that, for $399.99.
The other model is the 160GB PS3, and Sony says it’ll sell for $299.99, available at sites such as Amazon and Newegg. Sony offered a few intriguing PlayStation Network updates, including the option to text chat during shows via PlayTV. And then there is Mubi, a PS3 online cinema that looks a bit like Twitter, Netflix, and Facebook. The PS3 already does Netflix with a disc, will shortly support Netflix disc-free, and just started offering Hulu Plus in beta, with a public launch sometime early next year.
The rest of the announcements featured a series of gameplay trailers and demos, including inFAMOUS 2, Medal of Honor, MAG, Killzone 3, Gran Turismo 5, Virtua Tennis 4, games with 3D support (Hustle Kings, Wipeout, Mortal Kombat 9, Motorstorm Apocalypse), and Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One, a four-player online version of the popular series with dynamic cooperative play, coming fall 2011.
