Sony has confirmed that the new smaller and lighter PS3 will be available in the Indian market, just in time before Diwali. Sony India will sell the 500GB HDD variant and the 12GB flash memory SKU. Consumers opting for the affordable 12GB variant will be able to add a new HDD later on.
Sony says the new PS3s have been redesigned completely and are slimmer and lighter by 50 percent compared to the first PS3 model and 20 percent thinner and 25 percent lighter compared to the current PS3 version.
Unfortunately, Sony hasn’t revealed the price but promised to announce it closer to the launch “based on the prevailing exchange rate scenario.”
