Sony Announces 160GB PS3 Bundle, Wireless Keypad Accessory

From DailyTech: Sony is continuing on its quest to make its PS3 console the top-selling video game console in the world. It has a long way to go with Nintendo's Wii thoroughly trouncing both the PS3 and Xbox 360 in sales.

In July, the Nintendo Wii outsold both the Sony PS3 and Microsoft Xbox 360 in America. Nintendo sold 666,000 Wii consoles compared to 405,500 PS3's and 219,800 Xbox 360s. That was a marked increase in PS3 sales compared to May 2008 when the best the PS3 could do was tie the Xbox 360.

In an effort to increase sales, Sony has tried several tactics with its PS3 console from slashing prices to offering limited edition PS3 bundles. In July, Sony announced that it would be pricing the 80GB PS3 bundle at $399 and discontinuing the 40GB PS3 that had previously occupied $399 price point.

The most recent Sony PS3 special bundle was the limited edition gunmetal silver Metal Gear Solid 4 bundle. Sony announced its next limited-edition PS3 bundle today called the Uncharted: Drake's Fortune bundle featuring a new 160GB PS3 system.
