Sony has announced a 320GB PS3 Move bundle for €347/$399.99 and also a 160GB PS3 for $299.99 which will replace the current 120Gb model.

Sony said the new models will “continue to offer the same advanced features and functions of the current models, but with approximately 33 percent more capacity and at compelling price points”.

Folks wanting an increased HDD can thank the folks who downloaded over 1 billion pieces of content off PSN as of July 2010.

The 160GB model PS3 is now shipping to retailers at the same price as the existing PS3 model.

As part of the September 19 launch of Move, the PS3 Sports Champions Move bundle will introduce the 320GB model PS3 system along with one Move motion controller, a PlayStationEye camera, a copy of Sports Champions, and bonus Blu-ray game demo disc.

“With the launch of PlayStation Move just around the corner, we’re expecting many new consumers to join the PlayStationfamily,” said Scott A. Steinberg, vice president of product marketing. “The PS3 Sports Champions Move bundle provides those families with everything they need to get into motion control gaming at a great value, with the 320GB model PS3 system as the centerpiece of the package.

“Also, as PlayStation Network continues to evolve with exciting new services, the hunger for digital content grows; these larger storage capacities address that demand and encourage consumers to take full advantage of the complete PS3 experience.”

Cool.

The new SKUs were announced during Sony’s presser at gamescom, which we liveblogged here.
