Sony considering external PS3 hard drive?

SCEE boss David Reeves has admitted he is unsure if Sony will stick to offering only the 40GB PS3 unit.

Speaking to Eurogamer, he hinted towards the possibility of introducing official external hard drives as he delivered his vision of consumer storage choice.

"We launched with 60GB and to reduce the price we went to 40GB. We're not sure we want to stay with that configuration of hard drive, and I think what you're going to see in the future is maybe consumers can choose," Reeves told Eurogamer.

"The PlayStation will stay the same, but consumers can choose whichever size of hard drive they want. They can now, or course, because it's not a proprietary hard drive."

This may work, but this would have to be offered when u purchase the system since all PS3 games have mandatory installs. Plus the price I think would need to come down.

External hard drive support probably not a bad idea especially if i can load psn demo's there

As long as their external drive allows game installations then count me in.

Sony's PS3 hard drive option is better than the proprietary crap Microsoft makes 360 owers buy.
