12GB PS3 coming to North America on August 18

first_imgWhen Sony launched the super slim version of the PS3 console last year, it came in two forms, but US gamers were only offered one of them (Europe got both). Sony explained that offering the PS3 with a 500GB hard drive as standard in North America was the right decision because of how many digital consumers there are–they need the space to download content and use PSN effectively.But Sony has now had a change of heart, and the 500GB PS3 will be joined by a 12GB PS3 on August 18. You currently pay around $270 for the 500GB model, but the new 12GB console will only cost $199.Sony hasn’t officially confirmed this launch yet, but Engadget turned up an image of the 12GB machine from a Kmart stock room along with a message not to sell it before August 18. So this is happening, but will gamers want it?The 12GB PS3 at $200 is most likely a reaction to the 4GB Xbox 360 that sells for the same price. However, as well as already having 8GB more on board storage out the box, Sony lets you use whatever hard drive you want if you decide to upgrade. You can pick up a compatible 500GB hard drive for around $50, but why stop there? A 1TB drive can be had for $75, which is only $5 more than the official 500GB PS3 sells for. But do note, the 12GB model in Europe doesn’t ship with the required hard drive bracket in the box (costs about $10), this may be the same for US models.If you intend to purchase all your PS3 games on disc then the 12GB model will be tempting. It also helps to know you can upgrade to a large hard drive at a later date, and for less than the price of the 500GB console. The other good news is this launch actually makes the PS3 look like better value than the 4GB Xbox 360, so Microsoft may react with a price cut.last_img
