Gizmodo.com Australia has recieved word from a great source outside Sony that the 40GB PS3 is definitely on its way to Australia, and the release timing fits well with the Best Buy leaks discussed by the mothership.
Hit the jump to read on!
It's gonna happen.
IS anyone surprised?
good, with the price drop i may finally buy a ps3, i still think its a risk to spend that much on a console that sill has so much to proove but i would rather have both the ps3 and the 360 so i can have the best of both and not have to bother hearing fanboy BS about what console is better
JB Hifi is probably the best electronics store in Australia currently, if they confirmed the 40gig model it is definitely coming
hope this helps sony, and i also heard that everybody is getting a price drop, uk, jap, and of course australia
I am just curious to find more early adopters who are completely frustrated by the crap that Sony has sent our way. I bought a PS3 on launch, with promise of games and great movies. I have waited close to a year for any of these promises to come true, and now it just seems like my whole year was in vain. I bought the PS3 in hopes of supposed launch game Lair and 4 month away Heavenly Sword, as well as the advertisements showing Spiderman 1 & 2 on BD. I soon found out that HD-DVD LOOKED BETTER ON MY 133" SCREEN, due to Sony using the ancient Mpeg formatting, and when the games I wanted so badly were finally released in Sept, they were so disappointing (12 hrs of gameplay for H.S. and Lair - meh) that I have yet to own a single game. Now Sony continues to screw the early adopter, both on stand alones and on the PS3. Two price drops in one year? I owned a first gen LD, first gen DVD as well as a first gen SVHS and I have never felt so violated for being that support out of the gate. The early stand alones can't work with BD-J, firmware updates are lacking on anything other than PS3s and the latest debacle has only the PS3 able to handle yet another sony propietary BD+ security encryption mechanism for anti-piracy. This means the people who spent 1000+ are now sitting on drink coasters instead of BD players, as they won't even play BD+. This is nuts, but I would like to get an email chain started, hopefully followed by a website and maybe even some paid advertising against all this forceful, decietful propaganda that has left so many of us out to dry.
