playstation 3 News - Sony to introduce smaller PS3 this holiday, Sony will launch a smaller, lighter version of its PlayStation 3 console this holiday with a slightly lower price tag. The Japanese-based tech giant will sell two versions of the PS3: a 250GB model for $269 starting September 25 and a 500GB version for $299 on October 30.

European consumers will have a third option: a PS3 with 12GB of flash memory. Sony has not indicated whether this model would be available in the U.S.

The $269 model will be sold as a limited edition bundle packaging the PS3 action title Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception and a voucher for $30 worth of digital content for online game Dust 514. The 500GB model will launch as a standalone device and a bundle that includes a copy of Ubisoft action game Assassin's Creed III.

Sony says the new console is less than half the size of the original, chunkier PS3 models launched in 2006, and roughly 20%-25% slimmer than current models unveiled three years ago.

The announcement of revamped consoles is Sony's latest attempt to push sales of the PS3, which continues to battle rival Microsoft and its Xbox 360 and the Nintendo Wii, the current sales frontrunner. Sony will also compete with a brand new console, the Nintendo Wii U, starting this November.

Sony also announced its PS3 subscription service PlayStation Plus will be available to owners of its Vita handheld gaming system starting this November.
