The 160GB PS3 system announced at the GC will be available here as part of a new limited-edition bundle that includes the hardware, Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune game, a PLAYSTATION Network voucher for PAIN, and a DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller. We’re hearing from a lot of you that more PS3 storage space is important, particularly since the launch of our video delivery service, and this new model delivers more memory and a whole lot of content packed-in. The 160GB PS3 has all of the same functionality as the new 80GB PS3 that’s popping up on retailer shelves now, but obviously has twice the HDD space, so you can build levels to your heart’s content in LittleBigPlanet, download a ton of videos, and still have room for your entire music collection. The Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune 160GB PS3 bundle launches in November for $499.99 (MSRP)

Update The 160 gig will also be released in Europe on the 31st october for 449 Euros
Director of Hardware Marketing John Koller gives info on the NEW PS3 Model/Bundle as well as the new PSP Model known as PSP-3000, but this right is what I have been waiting for… A PS3 wireless KEYPAD shown in the picture above.
More details on all of this after the jump.
According to Sony’s product marketing manager for LittleBigPlanet Mark Valledor Sony wants to market Sackboy as the face of Playstation. Now I’m not to sure how I feel about this, to be honest I like how the Playstation Platform doesn’t have a game that defines the Playstation Brand.
When you look at Nintendo you think of Mario, and when you think of Mario you think of casual gaming.
When you look at Xbox you think of Halo, a system and a game for the “Hardcore.”
And for right now when you think of the Playstation Brand there is no game or Mascot to define the system so you think of a variety of games from Ratchet & Clank to Metal Gear for example.
But whats your take on the matter at hand?
SCEA Marketing Manager Mark Valledor has gave the official word about the Little Big Planet site going live today. T he site is there to keep us updated on all the last LBP news.
All Little Big Planet Sites:
Gamedaily.com thinks that these games are doomed to suck ass(and yes the pic above is one of the games on there list):
This is the cover art for Little Big Planet. I think it look s cool. What do you guys think?
yes the site for the much anticipated game, Little Big Planet, has finally launched. Although there is not to much to it yet, it still has some nice info to share and has a great layout to it. Im sure in time the site will give us more of what we all want as the launch of the game rapidly approaches.
These are the games we know so far that will support the Trophy system. I loved Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune and will be going back to play that game again, before Metal Gear hit in my opinion (DLB) Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune was the best game to hit the Playstation 3.
