80GB PS3 now available

Sony has announced that 80GB PS3 models bundled with MotorStorm are now available online and at brick-and-mortar retailers for US$599. 60GB PS3 models for $499 are available until supplies last.

The new machines are said "to appeal to the online gaming and entertainment enthusiast" looking for additional storage space to download games and additional content such as movie trailers and images from PlayStation Network.

"The 80GB PS3 offers expanded options in the PS3 family of products for those who want to enjoy more downloadable content," said Peter Dille, Sony's senior vice president of marketing, "The new model will provide ample storage space to meet the appetites of those who wish to download content today, and for many more years to come."

As well, Sony claims that unit sales of the recently reduced $499 PS3 have surged 115 percent at the company's top five retailers. Sony expects 60GB inventory to deplete sometime this fall.

PS3 owners looking for additional storage "to stand the tests of time" while still enjoying full backwards compatibility of the 60GB PS3 can follow GamePro's easy pictorial guide for self-adding a larger PS3 hard drive.
