The company will be discontinuing the 40GB consoles, but there will be no price reduction, as stocks are low; likewise, there will be no price reduction on either the PS2 or PSP.
Damit. I don't see why they dont keep selling these and just lower the price closer to the xbox. Of which the top, top model is still £50 less.

Ahhh Platinum games FTW...

So no difference in functionality, just a bigger drive? Meh.

Stick with my original 60GB PS3... Backwards compatibility

Thats the only thing I dislike about the PS3.. No backwards compatibility lol except for the rare 60GB models.

Xbox are making a 60GB 360 aswell.

I guess that was the one bonus for backing the console in its early days. Well that and the extra USB ports and the various memory card readers.
