replaceing my 60gig, what nM chips in it?

BulletToothtony3573d ago

which really sucks... i'm hoping for a late/early august release...

Rama262853573d ago

Wouldn't you be downgrading your PS3 by replacing your 60GB with the new 80GB?

The reason I say this is because it doesn't have the backwards compatibility, 4x USB ports, Card readers, etc....

Wouldn't you be better off just spending your money on a bigger hard drive??

No smaller chips. 80GB version will be the same as 40GB, except double HDD size.

65nm CPU and 90nm GPU, just like the 40GB, the 60GB had 90nm for both cpu and gpu

Well I work A Toys R' US in Canada and I got to talk with a Sony PR. We had a good time talking about the PS3 and he was surprised that our store had 3 MGS4 80G PS3 Bundle because supposedly we weren't suppose to get any more. When I asked if it had anything to do with the new 80G Core PS3 Bundle he said yes. I asked when about well we see it, he said hopefully around early September. This shouldn't be considered as fact and it also should be noted that he represented Sony Canada.

why are people Preordering the New 80gb's when the current 80 comes with MGS4 and PS2-BC? It's Worth the extra $100.

Topshelfcheese3573d ago

Ya, i love my original 60gb. But, I also still play PS2 games sometimes, and I put a 320gb drive in it.

Yeah, I'm keeping my 60gb. In the future I'll upgrade the space hopefully.
Lol and the phantom disagreer returns!
