when is this coming to usa?

i wonder how much they're gonna rape us with the price in Britain...
no BC? does anyone know which models in UK have BC? if there are even any left?

xplosneer3510d ago

if you're lucky and find a 60GB, all for ya. But otherwise, no. Just the 40GB and this 80GB probably wont either.
You guys are ripped off. Higher price, and pretty much impossible-to-find "premium" model, which still doesn't have full B/C.

and what's with no card readers and 2 USB ports?!?! I can find that stuff, but I sure don't want the clutter everywhere. Seriously stupid.

It'll cost the same as the current 40GB, so £299.

The only UK model with BC was the 60GB and they've been sold out for ages now.
