    While Microsoft added the Xbox 360 Elite to its gaming console lineup whose best feature comes in form of the 120GB hard drive Sony's 60GB Playstation 3 Premium now looks quite 'old'. Kotaku now comes with a story regarding an updated Playstation 3 model. A PDF document was found earlier this month which states a 80GB Playstation 3 is planned. Kotaku adds that Ken Kutaragi, known as "The GodFather of the PlayStation", had a 250GB model in mind. Maybe the 80GB PS3 when introduced will serve as the Basic, the 250GB PS3 as the Premium model.

    So basically these are cheaper gaming pcs? Hell, a 250GB HDD on the PS3 and its a souped up pc gaming machine, just not really upgradeable :)

    Depends really since they're starting to have download-able HD Movies and that takes up about 8GB right away so a 20GB just won't cut it. And if you're really into that stuff 120GB is just barely enough either.

    I actually want a PS3 but there's no good games out for it right now except Resistance, but that's it for me.
