why would SONY exclude the USB altogether and the BC compatibility . Those features are just worth 20$.

I think the console could have 1 USB port (sufficient ) and BC .

its obvious that these rumors are BS. removing the USB ports from the PS3 is like saying, ok no PS eye for you, or you cant charge you controllers anymore.

thats why they made this stupid article(no usb?). Sites need hits for advertisement and bills. The Next big thing is the budget PS3 that can be purchased with foodstamps.

How in the hell would you charge the controller? They can't assume everyone has a PC to use.

no usb ports is bull. even ps2 has usb ports

I'm guessing they meant no card readers as opposed to USB ports.
And no BC simply means that BC will be through software emulation.
