Sony's "Big Bang" PS3 announcement on the 12th is…

Nothing… After confirming a “Big Bang” announcement for the 12th of October, Sony is now coming out and saying that nothing is going to be announced on the 12th?

Do you think the announcement has been delayed due to technical difficulties, or does that excuse not cut it this time? 

Am I also the only one who is just slightly confused about the PS3’s ever changing hard drive size? Do they just have a pile of old hard drives and as they run out of one size they ‘announce’ a new PS3 model and slap in whatever else they have?

[Update] Sony has changed their mind. They do have a big announcement again and they will tell us all about it tomorrow. Engadget and most other sites believe this is the announcement

The 40GB PS3 is expected to feature WiFi, Blu-ray, and SIXAXIS controller but will lose 2x USB slots, the memory card reader, and backward compatibility chip

    I was expecting them to drop the Wifi! I saw somewhere that this 40GB sku will have zero backwards compatibility i.e not via hardware or software emulation. I’m also not quite sure what the deal is with the different hard drive sizes, I mean really, what is the cost diff between a 40GB and 60GB, or even 80 GB drive??

  • The console uses a standard 2.5″ SATA Hard drive, made by Seagate. Now if you follow Seagate’s pricing (it is generally most manufactures are like), as the capacity gets bigger, the price per MB decreases. Therefore it is more economical to buy say a 160 GB HDD that costs you R800 than a 120 GB HDD that costs you R700.

    Wow… thanks Sony. This will for sure leave consumers even more confused when they enter a shop to buy a console.
