Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) has announced that it will be releasing a 160GB PlayStation 3 unit across PAL territories later this year.

Speaking at the platform holder’s press conference at the Leipzig Games Convention this week, SCEE boss David Reeves confirmed that the new SKU would retail for approximately EUR 449 – exactly EUR 50 more than its 80GB counterpart.

Reeves stated that the new model will feature the same specs as the 80GB unit minus the expanded hard drive capabilities, and would go on sale from October 31.
