Sony Computer Entertainment is preparing a more expensive version of its PlayStation 3 slim game console, a media report claims. The move will allow Sony to capture customers, who want to have premium game system. Still, a rather “cheap” design of the PS3 slim is likely to withdraw customers, who would pay a premium from the device.

According to web-site, Sony is preparing to release PlayStation 3 slim version with 250GB hard disk drive as well as FIFA video-game. The rumoured unit is set to compete against rumored Xbox 360 Elite with enlarged hard disk drive. The price of the PS3 Slim 250GB is expected to be €349, according to the report, however, no actual release date is set.

Even though premium version of the PlayStation 3 slim is more than likely to be welcome by the market, quite a lot of consumers looking for the finest version of the PS3 will probably choose the current PlayStation 3 with shiny look and rather remarkable design. While the new PlayStation 3 seems to be a lot smaller, its design is not as solid as that of the original model.

Sony effectively discontinued premium PlayStation 3 160GB with enlarged hard drive and advanced connectivity capabilities when it formally launched its PS3 slim model in late August.

Sony Computer Entertainment did not comment on the news-story.
