Sony yet to decide on PS3 Hard Disk, Controller is Prototype

Pro-G - Prodigious Gaming: Sony yet to decide on PlayStation 3 hard disk
"Will a hard disk be included as standard with the PlayStation 3?

The PlayStation 3 specifications reveal a slot ready to take a hard disk but currently no one, not even Sony, knows if a hard disk will be included as standard.

An interview in the latest issue of Famitsu magazine, with Sony Computer Entertainment chief technical officer Masayuki Chatani, revealed that we are going to have to wait to find out what the future holds for the PlayStation 3 hard disk. When asked about the inclusion of a hard disk with the PlayStation 3 Chatani replied, 'It has yet to be decided.'

In the same interview it was revealed that Sony went for the detachable hard disk option because they feel that people will want to upgrade to larger drives in the future and also take their drives to other PlayStation 3 consoles, much like Microsoft have said with their Xbox 360 hard disk.

Chatani went on to answer questions about the PlayStation 3's controversial new controller which shocked many people when it was revealed at Sony's pre E3 press conference. He said, 'I don't think there will be any fundamental changes,' and goes on to say, 'but it's a prototype, so there could be some small adjustments.'"
