Sony announced today a value priced package for prospective PlayStation 3 buyers who'd like to make use of the system's digital video recording capabilities.

On November 18, Sony will release the PlayStation 3 HDD Recorder Pack 320GB unit. This limited edition package combines a Charcoal Black 320 gigabyte PlayStation 3 system with Sony's popular Torne digital video recording device.

The bundle will sell for ¥39,980. Separately, the Charcoal Black 320GB system currently sells for ¥34,980 (a Classic White version, announced at the Tokyo Game Show, is due on October 21), while Torne sells on its own for ¥9,980 (although it's widely available for a couple of thousand yen less).

In a separate announcement, Sony also said today that it will be releasing a 2.8m USB cable (Mini-B-A type). This is priced ¥500 and will be released on December 16. The cable that's included with the PS3 is 1.5 meters. The longer cable can be used in a similar capacity as that, for charging your controller and connecting to a PSP.
