So now PS3 is moving along with the 80GB.

Additionally, Seagate has the 120GB and the 160GB.

Just relax. Get your PS3, your online ID and move right ALONG!!!

PS3 is a PS3 is a PS3. Only difference is the HDD...MOVE ALONG!!

Isn't TGS in September, because if it is here is what i think. The 80gig will come out this August but the 60gig will be the one selling like mad. In September the 60gigs will be almost gone if not gone and then at the TGS they will announce that the 80gig will take over at the $499 price or maybe lower, and will now ship with the new controller.

... have always done is never announce anything to the last minute. which business wise is pretty smart. why would they admit a price cut so then ms could counteract to there move. thats also why they kept home under cover for ages. if ms knew what they was doing they would of had more time to do something to counteract against it.

WHO said the price cut was false. It was the President of SCE Japan, where there was no price cut. No one was lying about anything, but none of the right people were opening their mouths either.

Sony lied about the price cut. They have to lie though, otherwise people will just wait. Who knows. If true, maybe the didn't screw the pooch after all.
