Sony has unveiled an updated version of the PS3 Slim. The $350 console features a 250GB hard drive and will be available on November 3.

"Since we launched the slimmer, lighter 120GB PS3 system, we've sold one million units worldwide within the first three weeks. Today, we announced the availability of a new PS3 system with a 250GB hard drive hitting store shelves on November 3," Sony stated in an official blog post.

"The PS3 250GB system has the same slim look, feel and features as the 120GB system, but with a 250GB built-in hard drive for $349.99. With the new, larger capacity, you'll have even more room to store your favorite games, movies/TV shows, music, photos and PlayStation Network downloads."

EEDAR analyst Jesse Divnich told TG Daily that the 250GB PS3 Slim was targeted at high-end gamers.

"Variety is good in business and offering a higher priced SKU that provides additional hard drive space will serve the needs of high-end gamers, who always want to own the biggest and most expensive products," added Divnich.
