The 160gb PS3 models were released as a 'premium' alternative to the then-standard non-BC 80gb consoles, the CECHP/Q "160gb" debuted at a higher price point ($100 more than the CECHK “80gb” in North America) but had the largest stock hard drive ever to ship with a PS3 console. In North American regions it included Uncharted: Drake's Fortune as a pack-in game, which, together with the hard drive, seemed to justify the price. Beyond these two pack-in differences, the CECHP “160gb” model is largely identical to the previous CECHK “80gb” in terms of internal hardware.
The CECHP/Q is also noteworthy as the final retail release of the traditional “fat” CECH series, replaced in late 2009 by the long-rumored, slimmed-down CECH-20 series.
