    Nope, not an early sign of cataracts, you're looking at Sony's ceramic white 40GB PS3 and DualShock 3 controller just loosed in Japan. Like its European 40GB cuz, the CECHH00 Series PS3 aces the backward compatibility, memory card slot, and 2x of the 4x USB slots in favor of a low, low ¥39,980 (about $341/€242) price tag when it ships on 11 November. The DualShock 3 wireless rumbler (sold separately) first revealed at Tokyo Game Show hits shelves the same day for ¥5,500 or about $47/€33. Yes, both the PS3 and DualShock 3 are available in black if you're feeling the ebony over new-school ivory.

    You can always get a 60GB or 20GB from $350-$450.
    eBay, Amazon.com, or used.

    If you wanna play old games, get a 60GB. I already have a Ps2, so I only need the 40. Not to mention the hard drive is still upgradable to 160GB on all the systems.

    i don't like the other thing they took off of it, i can't remember what it is cause i'm doing a million things at once but i didn't like it. i want a price drop on the better model, then i can put a 160gb hdd in it and have all the good features, too.

    The 80GB is getting a price drop to $499 w/ MotorStorm game...

    If you dont got a 60GB... the 80GB is the next best thing.. it has a high % of backwards compatibility. Something like 75% and with firmware updates its possible for them to raise the #

    Why complain bout USB ports & mem card readers..
    The 60GB is $450.... Simply trade in ya PS2 w/ 2 controllers & get $50 off and its the price of the 40GB except with 100% BC, 4 USB ports, and mem card readers...oh and 20GBs more.
