500 gigabyte and 250 gigabyte models available soon.

Sony has confirmed the PlayStation 3 super slim during its Tokyo Game Show press conference this morning.

Boasting a ‘complete redesign’ of the internal architecture, the internal volume and weight of the new design has been reduced by more than half compared to the 60 gigabyte PlayStation 3 model, and by 20 and 25 percent compared to the current model. It also uses a new sliding disc cover.

The console will come in both “Charcoal Black” and “Classic White.” (The latter may be Japan-only.) Find its release schedule below:
