Following on from Sony Europe's announcement of the 160GB PlayStation 3, SCEA has confirmed that the new package will hit North America as well.
Currently scheduled for a November launch, the bundle will include Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, a PSN voucher for PAIN and the DualShock 3 controller, all for $499. The recently announced 80GB model is currently shipping to retailers and will sell for $399.
"As PLAYSTATION Network continues to evolve with our recently launched video delivery service and more exclusive games, PS3 owners are demanding more storage capacity," said Jack Tretton, president and CEO, SCEA. "Consumers also are utilizing PS3 as an entertainment hub for their digital media, placing content such as their entire music collection on the hard drive. The 160GB PS3 system addresses this growing consumer demand in a compelling bundle that delivers significant value."

I don't care about hard drive size. I want full backwards compatibility. When is sony going to realize that this IS important to some people.

The 160gb PS3 will not sell, due to the fact that the system might cost over $700.
