Sony plans 80GB PS3

Sony is planning to upgrade the Playstation 3 to include an 80GB hard drive, says IDG News. The change was actually discovered as a result of an FCC filing, in which Sony applied for a change to the PS3's Bluetooth transmitter; the cover letter states that the change was necessary for "the difference of the capacity of hard disk," later identified as 80GB. Sony currently sells 20 and 60GB PS3s, the latter of which also has WiFi and slots for CF, SD and Memory Stick cards.

The news comes not long after the revelation of Microsoft's Xbox 360 Elite, which also raises the hard drive space, moving from 20 to 120GB. The console represents a serious threat to Sony, which has not sold nearly as many PS3s as it expected.
