Hot on the heels of the new PlayStation 3 Slim released a few weeks ago, Sony has announced that a 250GB version of the PlayStation 3 will be released in mid-October.

The 250GB PS3 will have an RRP of $599.95, with one of the following games to be thrown in free: UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves, Ratchet & Clank: A Crack in Time, SingStar Motown and
EyePet.

It seems the PS3 Slim has been a popular choice, with 4,000 sold in the the first 4 days after release, with 40,000 sold in the period September 3 to September 20.
