Sony considering external PS3 hard drive?

400°
324w ago - SCEE boss David Reeves has hinted that Sony may at some point consider releasing Official external PS3 HDD's.

"We launched with 60GB and to reduce the price we went to 40GB. We're not sure we want to stay with that configuration of hard drive, and I think what you're going to see in the future is maybe consumers can choose.

The PlayStation will stay the same, but consumers can choose whichever size of hard drive they want. They can now, or course, because it's not a proprietary hard drive." said Reeves.

To quote: "It might be that we will offer the possibility for people to have a bigger hard drive, but they have that option now.

But it does not mean that we have anything in the works to introduce a different model or bigger hard drive built in," added Reeves.

SCEE chief: PS3 has a better line-up than 360 in 2008

324w ago - Speaking to us following his presentation to media at PlayStation Day in London last night, SCEE chief David Reeves said that he didn't believe the Xbox 360 was a sinking ship but revealed that Sony had a "really good Christmas coming up".

While Reeve's comments won't surprise anyone, it is interesting to compare the two platforms' upcoming headline exclusives. Xbox 360 owners can expect Ninja Gaiden 2, Gears of War 2 and Fable 2 exclusively this year. PS3 owners will be enjoying Metal Gear Solid 4, Resistance 2 and LittleBigPlanet.

When asked if he thought the Xbox 360 was a sinking ship, Reeves replied: "No I don't think it's a sinking ship. I think they have contributed amazingly to the growth of the industry. And I think we have done exactly the same. We don't criticise the competition because we are all in this industry and the only way you can do it is to actually bring more consumers in. So I'm not going to criticise them.

All I'm saying is that I think that when we look ahead I think we honestly have a better line-up on PS3 than they probably do on Xbox. They've had two or three Christmases now, I can't remember how many, you know, but I think we've got a really good one coming up. Not just Christmas but in the summer as well."
 

GTA IV Multiplayer patch for PS3 due out today!

50°
324w ago - Rockstar and Sony plans to patch the PS3 version of Grand Theft Auto IV today to improve the multiplayer experience.

Speaking to Eurogamer, a Sony source explained that the patch would help by "reducing the loads on the servers at GameSpy and hopefully the completely random hangs that some users have seen".

PS3 owners who bought GTA IV last week have had to endure problems connecting to the multiplayer service almost from day one.

What's more, some reported random crashes, for which Rockstar suggested that erasing game data and reinstalling as a possible solution.

This week, UK chart monitor Chart-Track reported that 926,000 copies of GTA IV were sold during its first week on sale here - with 413,000 of going to PS3 owners.
 

No other PS3 HDD Configurations planned for Europe

250°
324w ago - Speaking at the SCEE PlayStation Day in London yesterday, SCEE president David Reeves said that PS3's hard drive is staying at 40GB in Europe for the foreseeable future.

"I don't know that any other hard drive configuration is even planned," he said when asked when an 80GB SKU - so popular in the US - would release in Europe.

Continuing on the topic of PS3 hard drives, Reeves went on to indicate that those looking to get involved with PlayTV in September are likely going to have to buy a new one.

"I think eventually, yes, it will be," Reeves said when asked if hard drive size was significant to the consumer SCEE's trying to reach in Europe.

"I think the person that wants to be multimedia - and when we bring out PlayTV, they're going to find that 40Gb is too small. But it's not proprietary. You can go out and you can just buy another hard drive and just plug it in.

"You know, hard drives are a commodity. Sony says, 'OK, we'll go with 40, we'll go with 60, we'll go with 80,' but Seagate, who produces hard drives, they might find that next year, for example, the cheapest hard drive is 120Gb.

I'm not saying we're launching it, but they might say, 'We're putting a zillion 120Gb hard drives into Vaio and Toshiba laptops,' right?...
