The 20GB Sony PSP is already getting a mauling before its even hit the shops. But for UK buyers, it’s probably academic, with only the 60GB PS3 likely to hit our stores according to the head of Sony Computer Entertainment’s UK operation, Ray Maguire.
In an interview with UK games industry weekly MCV, Macguire said: "The lower-end, 20GB version of [the] PlayStation 3 has no Wi-Fi, no HDMI and none of the other slots in it, so it’s really a question of where we would position it. It’s more likely that we will only launch the 60GB version."
He also backtracked slightly from the set price of £425 he quoted last week – but only slightly: "We have time to watch the yen and be flexible, but that 60GB version looks like £425 in the UK at the moment," Macguire told MCV.
The price, according to Macguire, is not one intended to appeal to the mass market but was more geared toward early adopters.
