This is barely news.. Sony and Europe does not seem to work together for some odd reason.

yeh, yet most devs etc are saying its really important for Sony to do well in Europe... show us some love Sony!

I don't care much, what's the difference? 60 or 80
Might as well buy a new 200gv harddrive if I need more space

but thats not to say they wont later on down... especially in other territories.... my guess is that between now and winter US and europe and AU will get this version and they'll probably drop the price because this is right around the price of the 60gig version in the US... sony is doing what it should... this is an experiment. they are prolly seeing how well this will sell before they go mass with this version... iff this comes out at 600 US then the 60gig will come out somewhere at 450 to 500 USD making it look even more reachable for a MASS MARKET!!!... all this is only pointing to price cuts and trust me Sony is gonna time it with one of it's biggest games later this year, or even with the advent release of HOME this fall.

If Sony goes for one SKU then the 60 gets dropped and it's replaced by the 80GB ver.
