An editorial from VG247 on the dangers facing SCEE if it continues to keep an 80Gb PS3 unannounced in Europe. A taste:
"SCEE's danger here is that ill feeling will leak out of the "savvy" consumer group in Europe and into a wider audience. How thrilled are punters going to be if they spent £300 on a 40Gb PS3 for GT5: Prologue only to find a few months later that their machines have 50 percent less capacity that the "new" machine and come with an obsolete controller? The answer is "very", but "it wouldn't have been so bad if they had made an informed buying decision." The phrase "rock and a hard place" springs to mind.
Honesty is the best policy, Sony. Announce the 80Gb machine, announce a date for DualShock 3, announce a proper Metal Gear pack and start treating Europe as an equal. Face having PlayStation 3 associated with the phrase "depressingly inevitable" for much of this year if you don't."
