GC08: 160GB PS3 will be in limited supply
The 160GB PS3 announced at GC yesterday will be in limited supply when it launches at the end of the year, SCEE president David Reeves has revealed.
Speaking to uk.playstation.com, Reeves explained that the new SKU will be used as a test to determine whether consumers want more storage.
“In thinking about the future, particularly with so many consumers wanting to store things on the hard drive, and especially with all the different media people are putting on there, a bigger hard drive is something we think people will find very attractive. It means that people will be able to store more without the need for an external hard drive,” Reeves stated.
“So what we’re going to do at the start of November is release a 160GB Limited Edition PS3. The configuration is exactly the same as the 80GB model, with double the size of the hard drive. It’s a limited amount and we want to see what the reaction of consumers is.”
So if you were thinking of picking up a 160GB PS3 when they launch across Europe on October 31st, you better think about pre-ordering one as soon as you can.
