120GB PlayStation 3?
The president of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, David Reeves, has hinted at the possibility of a 120GB PlayStation 3. Speaking with the Norwegian site Dagbladet, Reeves downplayed the likelihood of bringing the 80GB model to Europe, arguing that an extra 20GB would not be worth the expense for most buyers. He suggested however that a double-sized console could be justifiable -- "So maybe you'll see something a little bit later," he added.
In lieu of the price cut for American 60GB buyers, Europeans recently received the PS3 Starter Pack, costing €599 and including two gamepads, as well as "MotorStorm" and "Resistance: Fall of Man." A 120GB system would mirror the size of Microsoft's Xbox 360 Elite, which was launched in April in the States and should be coming to Europe in the near future. [via PlayStation Universe]
