80GB PS3 "could be an option" for other markets, says Sony

"However," he added, "It could be an option to introduce it in other regions but it needs to be decided by each region."

I doubt it would boost sales any unless there was some sort of price drop associated with it.

its just 20 more GB...and u cant play ps/ps2 games.....

Um, yes you can. It's the same as the PAL-release, except 80 GB.

I think Sony should focus on getting the price of the 60 GB down $100 or so before they go introducing another model.

well, they released it in Korea because they hadn't released any other system there but since you can pretty much fit any SATA 2.5" drive in the PS3 it would be pointless to release the 80 gigs in a territory that already has one of the two SKUs
