Sony developing 200GB PS3

"After sending out e-mails, instant messages, making a few phone calls, and doing a ton of reading through Sony's research and development charts, I found out that a 120GB model was in the works, but would not be a good choice considering the recent upgrade to the Xbox 360 of the same size -- not to mention the PS3's lifespan needs to incorporate a larger drive for future needs. A 200GB hard drive fits this model that Sony wants to offer.

A few other drives have been tested in between this 120 to 200GB range, but 200 seems to be the magic number. While that is thoughtful of Sony, it is also a little disappointing that they missed this when creating a console supposedly having a 10-year shelf life. The price point of the PS3 was in fact a large part of the reason. I am assuming that Sony is under the impression that we want to spend more. The U.S. market shows this with just under 10% of the PS3s being purchased at the lower price point."

Hurry, before they discontinue the 60gig next!

We WILL have a price drop before you, AND THEN see where the PoS3 sits.

The 60 becomes the 20 and the 200 becomes the the 60. That would be the best ting ps3 could do right about now a 600 dollar system is expensive. Yet one that use to be 00 drop to 500 would be great.

why sony? drives are cheap enough to get one yourself

techie3840d ago

dude. I don't see what the problem is. Put in a bigger drive for the same price. They don't follow Microsoft's lead and raise the price. The price will be the same or lower...that's what you do in a consoles life, you improve it and lower the price eg. slim ps2

GameJunkieJim3840d ago

I don't see any other reason for it, since sony doesn't offer a movie or iptv service.

HandShandy3840d ago

What kind of an idiot would buy that?

I have kitted out my PS3 with a 160gig HDD now from my old laptop - no money spend. Wasn't the whole idea of having a universal removable drive to avoid the issue of introducing a new Sku?
