Of course, you were wondering exactly what makes up the new, cut-down, 40Gb PlayStation. Well, Sony's also sent along the specifications. Feast your technical-eyes on the following specs after the jump.
CC)" defined by HDMI ver1.3a are supported.
Pretty cool, it's very similar to the 60gb one but does it have that crome trim like the rest or is it like the 20gb one?
And there is still no word on this coming stateside? (Although it's pretty obvious it will)
the 40gig does have chrome but some say the PS3 logo is like painted on instead of kinda ingraved, which is a good thing so now the letters wont fall off.
cant be bother to compare to 60gb one . surly 20gb and a few things cant increase the price much
When is this coming to the U.S.? I can't believe that the UK is getting this before the US is. Its usually the other way around. I don't want to wait another month for the 40 gig just so they can bundle it with that piece of crap "spiderman 3". This just sucks. As the richest and militarily most powerfull country on earth, the U.S. should get every bit of new electronics before every other country. In fact, the US should get this new 40 gig before Japan even does. This is an outrage.
P.S.-just kidding. I hope it hits the US soon though.
I really hate this whole multi SKU thing. Damm you MS for starting it. And damm you Sony for making it worse...
And damm you Kangaroo's!!!
So this is the real next gen system, right?
All those Sony fangirls crying the PS3 has all the cardreader nonsense, and now Sony's cutting it because the 360 gets too much market share.
Suddenly the system is not so next gen anymore?
PS3 will be slaughtered this Christmas, because MS won't sit on its hands now. The 360 will have it's pricecut soonish also, MS has 50 billion dollars in the bank and will kill any competition.
Sony digg their own grave for the PS3...
There was a time when your posts had more substance to them when it was much harder to disagree with you because you usually have some kind of a point.
Now your just soundin like a whinny lil "Fangirl" I've noticed that your postin alot less lately, what wrong? The early days of the PS3 being beat in the streets by the media for being too expensive and not havin enough games is comin to an end. Running out of material huh?
Just relax and pick up a PS3 you'll feel better in the morning.
TheMART- what are you thinking? The PS3 "isn't next gen anymore"? The 40 gig PS3 has everything that the 360 elite has, PLUS its a blu-ray player, PLUS it has wi-fi, PLUS its more powerfull, plus it upscales DVDs to 1080i, etc, etc. Why would anyone buy a 360 instead of a 40 gig PS3? Really, why? There is no reason.
everybody wants a PS3 and they're all waiting for a price drop.
just gamers without a brain would not purchase a PS3 this holiday.
there are so many amazing new games .. maybe they really can reach the 16 mill by March. i wish them good luck. Sony is king of gaming.
multiplatform games already starting to look better on the PS3 and the exclusives look better than anything ever seen on any system before.
the price drop already convinced 2 friends of mine to trade their x's to get a PS3 .. so let it begin!
xbox = halo, gears, pgr
ps3 = hundreds of nice games
i'm laughing so hard at people like TheMART who think they could convince us ps fans to buy a 360 .. lolol.
Who would by an 360 elite now in the Uk, when the PS3 40Gb is far more reliable, cost's the same £299, even the games are looking better, and PS3 comes with Blu-ray. Sony will shift millions off PS3's over Xmas period. 360 is screwed. lol.
LOL, go to Xbox websites and you'll find him there. He recently changed his birthdate, but we all know that he's 32...
Stupid Mart, Xbox 360 has nothing on this PS3. Backwards compatibility will become better with another firmware update, don't be a fool.
