(AP) -- To give more room for game, movie and music downloads, Sony is launching a PlayStation 3 with a larger hard drive on Nov. 3.

The $350 gaming console will have a 250 gigabyte , more than twice as big as the recently launched slimmer, lighter .

That one costs $300 and has a 120 gigabyte hard drive. Other than the hard drive size, the new PS3 will look and work the same as the 120 gigabyte system.

Sony's move comes as game companies gear up for the holiday season, when they reap most of their profit for the year.
