Pocket Lint is reporting that the 40GB PS3 is coming even sooner than we expected. They have had several separate reports that the new SKU will drop tomorrow, October 5th. Not only that, but the 60GB will be dropping in price to £369 at the same time. While we haven't been able to confirm these reports, and therefore have no choice but to label them as a rumour, we're remaining optimistic and look forward to see what will happen tomorrow.
Pocket Lint is also stating that, while two of the four USB ports and the memory card readers will be gone, WiFi and software emulated backwards compatibility will remain. This is a particular point of interest for us, particularly as Play.com pointed out that the 40GB would have no backwards compatability whatsoever (though that information, as well as the other specifications, are now gone from their site).
We're looking forward to seeing how this progresses and, if Pocket Lint and their sources are correct, we may not have long to wait.
Rumour: 40GB PS3 in UK tomorrow alongside 60GB price cut
