European Exclusive 12 GB Super Slim PS3: A Missed Opportunity For Sony?

GXC: "As you may have heard, Sony announced new “super slim” PS3 models at their TGS conference last night/today (depending on your region).

... but I think most serious gamers will agree that a 12GB HDD is just too little to seriously consider purchasing.

Feedback on the Dutch PS3 Facebook page which released the news today about this 12GB model, has been overwhelmingly NEGATIVE. And IMHO rightly so.

True - that's from serious gamers. The annoying vocal group. The facts are though, Sony has provided a 500 GB system for those hardcore gamers and the 12 GB alternative for people who are budget conscious or are not gamers much.

I think that's what this article was touching on a lot.

MS didn't have a problem selling their 4GB bundles to casual gamers especially with games that required mandatory installs. I think Sony won't have much trouble pushing the 12GB model. You can always use a bigger hdd as confirmed by the official Sony site.

Reply @Dante. Yeah, that's my point.

250GB HDD is $30. Upgrade it and be done.

I like the Vita bundle idea. That would have been good.
