SCE to overhaul the PlayStation Store, new look goes live this October
Good news! The new PlayStation 3 model journalists have been gossiping about lately is finally official. Available from September 27th, the console’s 25% slimmer, 25% lighter, and comes in a variety of flavours hard drive-wise. What is arguably more interesting though is that Sony Computer Entertainment is also planning to give the PlayStation Store a makeover, to coincide with the Super Slim’s launch.
Putting our investigative talents to good use, we were able to find this information on the Australian PlayStation Blog. Pay particular attention to the bit in bold:

PlayStation 3 offers the ultimate in gaming and home entertainment at brilliant value for money, and it’s now available in an eye-catching design that is bound to turn heads in your living room.
Available from 27 September 2012, the new PS3 system is available in a wallet-friendly 12GB version (AU$299.95RRP) and a whopping 500GB model (AU$399.95RRP). So whether you’re after instant access to memorable, fun-packed evenings with the family, or want to load up your system with tons of fantastic entertainment, we’ve got the right PS3 for you.
The new console offers you the flexibility to tailor your PS3 experience to suit your needs: start off with the 12GB model and then from November ramp up the capacity by connecting a dedicated 250GB Hard Disk Drive.
To tie in with the launch, PlayStation Store for PS3 is set to get a new look from October 2012 too, making it even easier for you to find and download the content you love from the comfort of your sofa.
What the revamped PS Store will look like is anyone’s guess right now, but we imagine more details will come to light in the next week or two. We’ll keep you posted.
