Sony Keeps Mum on PS3 Rumors
According to the unnamed source, the new model will also reintroduce rumble with the inclusion of DualShock 3. Wired's Chris Kohler speculates that Sony will also ditch PS2 backward compatibility and memory card slots "once and for all," in an effort to cut costs like the company has done with the 40GB version.
Sony responded to the reports with "no comment."
Last week, an alleged Best Buy memo revealed that the 80GB PS3 would be discontinued. "The 80GB version of the PS3 is going closeout and won't be replaced at this time," it reads. "Only the 40GB version of PS3 will be sold in Best Buy stores at this time."
