I don’t know if this is good news or not for us PAL areas, however it looks like that 80GB PS3 model the NTSC areas have is no more.
According to a leaked memo from Best Buy in the States the only model going forward is the 40GB one. Which means, as they state so elegantly, “There currently isn’t a version that is PS2 compatible.
There have been rumours of a new white PS3 coming soon and a new cheaper model which will retail at $299.
Not sure what they could remove to make it drop down to $299 though as I could pretty much bet the house on the fact that they will not be removing that Blu-Ray drive or Cell processor.
