Playstation 3 80GB to sell at 40GB pricing

By on

Sony has said that it will dump its 40GB version and will sell the 80GB at the original 40GB price, announcing it during its press conference at E3 in Los Angeles.

From September, it will sell an 80GB in the US for $399, a price cut of around $150. The new 80GB will have all the features and functions from the original 40GB, but it also implies that it will not support backwards compatibility since the 40GB did not have any software emulation, but the original 80GB did.

No announcement has been announced in Europe or any other territory other the United States.

Thanks for coming onboard!
We're excited to have you.
