    Sony: "No Plans" for 80GB PS3 in US

    Source: Next-Gen

    "Sony revealed that an 80GB version of their PlayStation 3 will be released in South Korea. However, they have also disclosed some additional information that PS3 fans might be disappointed to hear: there are no plans to release this version in the US for now.

    Next Generation placed a call to Sony and got the news from the horse's mouth so to speak. The representative from Sony said that "We're constantly looking at new ... configurations [for PS3], but currently there are no plans to change current hardware offerings [in North America]." The question that is now posed is why South Korea? Well, knowing their penchant for MMORPGs, could it be that they are gearing up for a console MMORPG revolution with a release of Vanguard: Saga of Heroes for the PS3 or some other MMORPG they have been developing in the wings? We can speculate all we want, but the fact is we aren't getting it in the near future.

    So hopefully, if the US market shows enough demand, we might be getting it sooner than later. Be sure to check back for more updates on the PlayStation 3's 80 GB version."

    If anyone wants a bigger hard drive that badly, why not just buy a new hard drive and swap it in yourself?

    I am getting a PS3 today and I would like to know more about upgrading the HD to a larger drive. I just don't think 60 gigs is enough!

    Is there a limit to the size of the drive the PS3 will take?

    Is the OS stored on the original drive?

    TIA for any feedback you can give this poor PS3 Newbie!
