Sony considering external PS3 hard drive?

400°
328w 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.

"With everyone else, we have agreed on all terms," he said.

In some cases, deals had not been formally signed,...
