Will it ever make it to our shores? If it does will we be able to afford it? Can Sony’s Online experience compete with that of Microsofts Emmy Award Winning Xbox Live service? Sony, what are you thinking? These are just some of the questions I have pondered about.
The PS3 will be entering all markets in two flavours, similar to the Xbox 360 (this is quite funny because Sony initially mocked Microsoft for offering consumers choice… now they are doing the same thing). The PS3 will come in a 60GB model ($599 = R5500) which includes: built in Wi-Fi, media card reader, metallic accents, 60GB removable hard drive and HDMI out. The 30GB model ($499 = R4500) differs from the 60GB model in the following ways: no built in Wi-Fi, no media card reader, no metallic accents and only 30GB removable hard drive. See the picture to the left: 30GB model is to the left and 60GB model is to the right.
