yet the official site says spring 2006 still... hmmm interesting.. idk i cant believe anyone but sony because everyone that has speculated on stuff has usually been wrong. ill wait for a exact release date. i also wonder where the detachable hdd goes.
edit: just looked again and it says "hdd sold seperately" LAME, didnt some sony person say they were releasing ONE console not like xbox where the hdd would be separate in one package and with in another?! the only way this will be OK with me is if you can put whatever size hdd you want in it... because the hdd attachment crap for ps2 was pricey enough. (ps2 NA and HDD = about 140-150 new)
