Sony has announced that it will be introducing chunkier hard drives in new versions of its PS3 console inside a month over in the States.

The PS3 bearing a 160GB hard drive will be available as a standalone system, whereas its big 320GB brother will come as part of the “Sports Champions Move” bundle.

This bundle will comprise of the Move motion controller, a PlayStation Eye camera, and a copy of Sports Champions on Blu-ray, along with a bonus game demo disc. Oh, and a PS3 console itself, all of which will be priced at $400.

The standalone 160GB system will carry a price tag of $300, although what that will translate to over here, we shall have to see. A UK launch date for these new models hasn’t been mentioned yet, but it shouldn’t be far behind the States, what with Move coming out here in mid-September.

The existing 250GB and 120GB consoles will be phased out for these replacements. Sony said it felt the extra hard disk real estate was necessary given the increasing amount of digital content on the PS3.

In other Sony news today, the company also announced that the Mubi movie streaming service is coming to the PlayStation, along with the ITV Player.
