$399 PlayStation 3 Coming, But It Won't Play Old Games
Considering this more affordable version of the console also has Blu-ray playback, we think that the PS3 is finally starting to be a value proposition.
Sony also announced that the current 80-gigabyte PS3 model, which will still play PS2 games, has seen a price cut down to $499.99 from $599.99. What remains to be seen is whether the 80-gigabyte model will stay around or is actually being put on clearance and sent out to pasture, like the recently retired 60-gigabyte PS3 model in Europe and the earlier 20-gigabyte model here.
Confused by all the versions? We are, too, though we were actually kinda hoping that one more version -- the ivory-colored PS3 hitting Japan shortly -- would make its way to the U.S.. That still hasn't been mentioned for a U.S. release, and we think you can figure out what that means -- no snowy PS3 for Christmas.
