Sony is launching new Playstation 3 models that will come with larger drives – but at the same price. The $299 model will now bring 160GB of storage (120GB earlier) and the larger 320GB model – that also includes features like Playstation Eye web camera will cost $399.
Now one more interesting addition to the PS3 features list is the ability to stream Netflix videos and movies without a disc. As you know, earlier editions required you to insert a disc before you can watch Netflix videos over PS3. Now it is not clear if the new PS3 will come pre-installed with this feature or if it will be enabled via a firmware upgrade.
Eitherways, it’s a good development that PS3 fans will love to hear. The 160GB version is already in the market. Go check it out.
