PS3 80GB Dropping to $400 in September, Will Replace 40GB

100°
314w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment America CEO Jack Tretton announced today that the price point of the 80GB PS3 model will permanently drop to $400 dollars this September, replacing the current 40GB pack.

Tretton stressed that the new 80GB Core Pack will become Sony's primary PS3 model, offering "all of the same features and functionality" of the 40GB.

Does that mean no backwards compatibility with PS2 games?

To quote: No new SKU was announced, and the 40 GB SKU will be phased out, so it seems that Sony is likely moving back to a one-version console market. Unfortunately, the company did not make any comment on backwards compatibility, which is a key concern for buyers.

315w ago - An updated Atari release schedule has confirmed a September 2008 release date for Spark Unlimited's PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 FPS Legendary.

Spark Unlimited didn't get off to the best of starts in next-gen development with Codemasters' Turning Point: Fall of Liberty, but things are looking much more promising with its Pandora's Box inspired FPS, Legendary.

Although not yet matching the visual splendour of the best available on the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, Legendary certainly looks action packed. You can judge for yourself by checking out the latest footage of the game in action. Check out the video here courtesy of VideoGamer.

318w ago - Developer CD Projekt today revealed that its reworked and tweaked version of The Witcher, titled The Witcher Enhanced Edition, has been delayed to early September.

Originally slated for a May release, CD Projekt made mention of the delay in April, but had not specified a new date for the expanded PC fantasy RPG.

The revised launch date was announced in an update to the game's community page, where the company explained that the delay was necessary to prepare ten different language localizations of the game for a simultaneous release.

Beyond bug fixes and stability improvements, The Witcher Enhanced Edition will see the addition of fifty new character models for an increased variety in NPCs, new voice acting, a redone translation, improved facial animation and gestures, and a revised inventory system. Most of the changes are a direct result of player feedback.

The new content will be provided free of charge to those users who have already purchased the game. The retail version of the Enhanced Edition will include several bonus items including a video DVD, two music CDs and an extra DVD with bonus materials, such as an adventure editor.
