Be aware that as of Wednesday 10th October 2007 Sony are releasing a new version of the PS3. This version will retail at £299 and will be the same as the current version apart from
- 40gb hard drive rather than the current 60gb
- 2 usb ports rather than the current 4
- No memory card reader
- Will not be backward compatable i.e. no PS2 games will work on it
- Will not play SACD
It appears Sony will be discontinuing the 60gb model and so are going to reduce it to £349 on the day of release of the 40gb model.
For more information check out the Sony website or HMV as both of the cheap versions are available to order from their website now.
