Sony Working On 80GB PS3 Model?
– Rumors are beginning to resurface regarding Sony developing a larger hard drive for PlayStation 3 following comments from Sony spokesperson Satoshi Fukoka.
“For users who vigorously store [games and other entertainment content] in the PS3, 20GB is probably going to be to small” said Fukoka in an interview with Reuters.
He added, “Even 60GB may not be big enough eventually.”
Fukoka said that none of the inside components of PS3 would be alter with the larger hard drive model. “We are not likely to change its core components and functions such as the Cell, RSX, Blu-ray drive and network capability,” he said.
Sony has already filed an FCC application for an 80GB model.
