We told you last week that Sony officially announced a new, 40GB PlayStation 3 model in Europe. The console launched at €399, suggesting that a similar product would hit North American shores at $399 before long.
Engadget now reports that Target stores in the United States are already listing a 40GB PlayStation 3 for $399.99. The site shows photos of a Target price scanner as well as a "Sony store" database screenshot as proof. In the database shot, the console has an "in stock date" of October 28, and it is referred to as "PS3 40GB SPIDER." According to Engadget, the 40GB PS3 will be bundled with the Spider-Man 3 movie.
