80GB PS3 arrives early in UK

Sony has told MCV that the introduction of its new 80GB PS3 will rapidly push up demand for the console – as it brings the launch date forward a week to this Friday (August 22nd).

Following its flurry of announcements at the Leipzig Game Convention last night, SCE UK boss Ray Maguire told MCV that the platform holder is very confident in its new SKU – as it goes head-to-head with Microsoft's 120GB 360 Elite and newly launched 60GB Xbox 360 Pro.

The story is too old to be commented.

Stop messin with the drives Sony and give us a price drop you cheap bastards then watch your sales rocket.

Agree! 50 bones would be nice.

It's too early for a price drop it hasn't even been two years yet it's the consumers being cheap. How many pirated DVDs have been sold in the last two months let alone the whole year. Consumers need to understand that people need to get paid for what they do.

Yo man if my 60gb breaks ill pay Sony to fix it. Its collectible IMO and well worth the repair costs.

The UK 60gb is amazing.
I feel sorry for those who missed out.

trancefreak3707d ago

the next ps3 i get will be when they sell at a mass market pricing or if Sony makes a slim till then Im good.

I fail to see what pirated dvds have to do with console prices. Consoles make money off software not hardware, the more consoles in a home the more software they shift.
If they kept to the 40gig model they could have knocked the price down to encorage sales. the average consumer is still put off by that price tag.
And i agree people need to get paid for what they do which is why i only buy originals but that harware price is still to high for the mass market.
