Playstation 3 40GB Bids Adieu, Only 80GB Versions on Sale At Sony

As Gizmodo reported back in mid July, Sony's finally bid farewell to the 40GB PS3, leaving just the 80GB versions on sale at Sony Style, ending the on-again, off-again 80GB debate.

Whoa wait...This is only for the Sony store right?

But i hope you're not worrying because the new 80gb PS3 is just like the 40gb PS3 but with an extra 40gb at no extra cost.

The article said it would be $500 for the MGS4 bundle.

On a side note, it looks like the ps3 could possibly be having shortages or is sold out. Both sku's are currently back ordered at GS.

iHEARTboobs3716d ago

Yeah, the MGS4 bundle is going to be $500 but the newer 80gb that isn't the bundle is going to be $400.

For the same price as the 40GB now, you will get double the hard drive and a DualShock 3. For $100 there is the 80GB MGS4 bundle which includes Backwards Compatibility, Media Slots and 4 USBs instead of 2.

Sweet, so would I,
Yet I should kill thee with much cherishing.
Good night, good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow,
That I shall say good night till it be morrow.
- William Shakespeare

Except that there would be no tomorrow :(!

This 80gb is basically a 40gb with a bigger HD. No backwards playability with PS2 titles.

Soon 80gb will bid adieu as well. Hello PS4

... It will happen in about 7 years

theKiller3716d ago (Edited 3716d ago )

40GB to 80GB with the same price!
and in fall they will make it to 300$ and will introduce 160GB that will retail at 400$!!

if that happened then we can officially say the cold war between 360 and ps3 will end in favor of ps3!

why so serious xbots??

doshey3716d ago

oh ya cuz u know ms has had only 1 sku, wrong ms has a new one every 5 months lets see there was the: hdd less 360, 20 gb, 60gb, elite, and the arcade, did i forget any of them

jamilion3716d ago

?? Is that going to be discontinued or have a price drop?!?!

If you want Backwards Compatibility you better grab a MGS4 Bundle before they are gone.

PimpHandStrong3716d ago

sorry but it doesnt

If you cant find a PS3 game to play on your new 80GB then your not a gamer!

Prismo_Fillusion3716d ago

Actually it does matter. I only had the option of getting the 40 gig, and I've never owned a PS2. I would love to be able to play some of the PS2 classics without having to buy an old system, but I can't.

Don't get me wrong, my PS3 gets PLENTY of use, but I'd still love to be able to play some of the classics..

solidt123716d ago

Your both wrong, It matters to some people and to some other people it doesn't. It just depends on the individual.

As more games come out, it is getting less use from me. I still play old FF games, but aside from that, I dont use the BC at all. I will probably go play GOW2 because I never did.
