Sony announces 80GB PlayStation 3 (in South Korea)


That 80GB PlayStation 3 that's been kicking around the FCC's filing cabinets for awhile isn't just being considered, it's finally going to see a release. In South Korea. According to a press release on Sony's South Korean site, the 80GB version will be released on June 16 for KWR 518,000, or $556. That's less money for more geebees!

While Sony denied a European release to GamesIndustry.biz, we can't help but think all that FCC paperwork wasn't someone's idea of a good time. With the 20GB model out of the way, and a cacophony of critics asking for price drops, it sounds like an opportune time to add this second SKU to the PlayStation 3 lineup worldwide.
