Keep it simple. I'm ok with SONY's move.
I never liked the 60Gb idea...seems like too much space for a console...but that's just me.
However what I don't like is that they are also getting rid of PS2 backwards compatibility with the new model as there is no extra PS2 emulator chip (or whatever it is).
