PS3 Essentials budget line-up announced

Oh, Sony. Save for not giving us hazelnut Italian choccies at a fancy dinner party, you really are spoiling us. Firstly, the sexy new PS3 Super Slim was announced at its TGS 2012 press conference and now comes the confirmation of PS3 Essentials, a new budget line-up of classic games to slot snugly into your freshly skinny console.

The range will retail for about €19.99 (just over £16), with many of the games available for download through the PS Store for €14.99 (about £12). When it comes to UK pricing, we’d expect PS3 Essentials titles to go for around £14.99 in shops and about £11.99 for the selected software below marked with a *.
