Updated / 250GB PS3 Slim bundle on the way?

Update: Eurogamer is now reporting that they’ve received information from a trusted retailer who says the 250GB unit will arrive in October as part of three console-plus-game bundles. Each bundle will be going for £299.99 and come with either Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Assassin’s Creed II, or Gran Turismo 5.

Original story: Eurogamer is reporting that Sony will introduce a 250GB PS3 Slim as soon as next month.

The console is said to be bundled with the upcoming FIFA 10 title, which we all know is notoriously popular in Europe, and is to be exclusive to GAME. The 250GB bundle is believed to cost €350 (£307).

Since its official release, the PS3 Slim has boosted PS3 sales by 999% and pushed over 40,000 units in its first week in the UK alone. With sales like this in Europe and with this 250GB Slim bundle with FIFA 10 likely to come out, seems like things are only going to get better for Sony.

Sony Europe has declined to comment, so we’ll just have to wait for an official announcement for confirmation. But if it’s anything like the leaked PS3 Slim situation we had earlier this year, it’s probably a safe bet that it’s true.
