As expected, Sony has finally unveiled a 250GB version of the new PS3 Slim , though for now it will appear in Japan only.

The upsized console, shown off at the 2009 Tokyo Game Show, will be offered as the Final Fantasy XIII Lightning Edition for 41,600 yen ($459) due in mid-December. Besides doubling the storage capacity, this model will be available in white and features a Final Fantasy character printed on the console's chassis. A copy of Final Fantasy XIII is bundled in the package, too. We'll have to wait to see whether this kit will subsequently make its way out of Japan to other regions. We're keeping our fingers crossed for now.

On a separate note, things are looking bright for the PS3 Slim so far with a whopping 1 million units sold worldwide in just three weeks.
