PS3 may top 500GB at E3
Sony is planning large refreshes of the PS3 at E3 this week in sync with the launch of the PlayStation Move, last-minute tips confirmed today. Capacities would roughly double from 120GB and 250GB to 250GB and 500GB, and both would be available in Move bundles. Wi-Fi should get an upgrade at the same time with a boost to 802.11n from the earlier 802.11g.
The prices and the launch strategy weren't revealed to CVG, but the current stand-alone PS3s cost $299 and $349 each depending on the capacity. Move is likely to add to the price, but it will also be available separately as a starter kit with a camera and a game for under $100. Controllers will be available by themselves for those who already have the camera.
