250GB PS3 ready for Christmas?

Rumours ramp up as Tokyo Game Show approaches

Rumours are flying around this afternoon suggesting Sony could be set to unveil a 250GB PlayStation 3 at the Toyko Game Show later this month.

Retail sources indicate to MCV that the beefy console could be part of a 'movie bundle' set to include a Blu-ray remote control, Blu-ray movie and Sony's PlayTV attachment.

The package will sit alongside current 120GB bundles on shop shelves when it arrives in time for Christmas, chatter indicates.

Tokyo Game Show kicks off on September 24 with a keynote from Sony Computer Entertainment boss Kaz Hirai. If the 250GB PS3 is happening, that's where we'll hear about it.

When contacted, Sony said - predictably - it doesn't comment on rumour and speculation.
