According to a leaked internal Best Buy memo picked up by the fine folks at PS3 Fanboy, the 80GB SKU
is going the way of... well, of every PS3
model that came before it. If the report is true, this means Best Buy will only have the 40GB PS3 on offer, and zero PS3s with any sort of PS2 backwards compatibility -- just like all of Japan
. There's obviously no indication at this point if this has anything to do with the upcoming white PS3
, or the vague -- and Sony discounted -- rumors of a $299 PS3 model, but we'll be keeping our eyes open.
