Sony were blowing their triumphant trumpet at GamesCom, announcing year on year growth figures of more than 50% for the PS3, which lead to the announcement of two new models to be released to market in response to the growth and success of digital distribution and digital storage.

Looks like we'll be seeing a 320GB and 160GB release of the PlayStation 3, though no specific details were given regarding release dates, prices or the like. We are promised local info at "a later date" though, so stay tuned for that. Also, whether they change the current slim model in reflection of the new storage will also remain to be seen.

PlayStation Move also now has an in-store date in Australia of September 16 at a SRP of AU$69.95. Additionally, the Move navigation controller will set you back a SRP of AU$49.95, though a "Starter Pack" will also be released featuring a Move controller, the navigation controller, a PlayStation Eye and "Starter Disc" for a SRP of AU$99.95.

If you want two or more players, Kinect is cheaper.

Kinect only tracks 2 players at a time, where Move can do 4. Sony could do the same with a camera and charge 4 grand saying, oh yeah ours is cheaper though if you want 20 people.

The information above is a little false. You don't get the navigation controller with the "Starter Pack." So you'll be paying $99.95 plus 49.95, basically $150 Australia just for a single player, plus $120 (Move + navigator) for each additional player.

So for two players, the most common local multiplayer set-up, you'll be paying $270 dollars, or $240 if you already have a PlayStation Eye.

I'll possible be getting both if the games are worth it but I'll feel a lot less ripped off getting the Kinect.
