Bigger harddrive and still pricey


Sony has
confirmed that it will launch PlayStation 3 game consoles with an 80 gigabyte hard disk drive in Japan.

The drive is bigger than previous models and comes with a $398 price tag, which is the same price as the current 40GB model sold in Japan. Sony already sells 80GB PS3 consoles in Europe and North America and this looks like it will be the death of the smaller drive.

Sony has said it aimed to sell 10 million units of the PlayStation 3 and 15 million units of the PlayStation Portable in the year to the end of March 2009.

It is losing out to the Microsoft Xbox 360 and the Nintendo Wii.
