Smaller and lighter PS3 with bigger HDD announced
You and I both know that we're all waiting for a next-gen console to come, presumably named the Xbox 720 or PS4. But just when that day doesn't seem to come any sooner, that very fact of us having to wait for probably another year or more is hammered down on us again.
Basically, during the recent Tokyo Game Show, Sony announced that the PS3 is going to get a new version which sports a 20% smaller body and will also be 25% lighter. Along with the weight loss, it is going to get an upgrade in its storage capacity which will now come in 250 and 500 GB.
I'm not saying this is exactly entirely bad but somehow, I can't help but to feel a little more disappointed. But on the bright side, it's not that bad if you do not own a console and is keen on getting one, the new version of the PS3 will probably win you over instead of the Xbox 360. So what Sony has basically done is to win over new console-buyers, but for those who already own a console, this would probably mean that Sony is not ready to unveil its next-gen console just yet... and btw, the new model is expected to have a $20 increase in price ($270).
What's your say?
