Europe To Get 120GB Playstation 3 ?

Sony Europe president David Reeves has hinted at the possibility of a new PlayStation 3 in Europe, which will accommodate a hard drive capacity of 120GB. Reeves stated that the leap from 60GB to 80GB would not be significant enough to pursue.
The difference between 60 and 80GB is very small, we just feel that going up 20GB is not worth it, if you go to double it, it's worth it , so maybe you'll see something a little bit later.


Reeves also commented on the reasoning behind Sony’s decision to offer European consumers a Starter Pack rather than an actual price cut like in the united states.
We believe added value works in the PAL territories, we don't think it's necessary to reduce the price since we think that consumers want added value in Europe. We think it's the right decision.

i expect the next high profile Sony employee to be fired will be the Sony's European marketing chief, it is no wonder Sony's profits down. Most Europeans know the value of money Sony needs to understand this and give Europe a price cut.

Who knows, by the time it comes out, hopefully a price cut will be in store for the original 60gb model. I dont think a 20GB increase floats the boat over here in the US either. Now 120gb with better gameplay support and a few enhancements, yeah that will work.

Id also like to see more accessories from Sony or 3rd Party companies.
