Sony’s released an 80Gb PS3 SKU in India, priced 25,990 rupees (£361).
It replaces the current standard 40Gb model and comes with a DualShock 3 in the pack.
“The introduction of high definition gaming and entertainment systems among the Indian audience is the result of extensive research into the entertainment needs and preferences of the next generation of PS3 owners,” said Atindriya Bose, SCE’s Indian country boss.

SCEE’s confirmed an 80Gb PS3 SKU for Europe, to launch on August 27 for £299, Eurogamer reports.
“We will be doing promotional bundles from the middle of September to the end of December at various prices,” Reeves said at a SCEE event in LA today.
“The 80GB replaces the 40GB. Please do not ask me if we’re going to go down in price for the 40GB because I will give you the answer, the answer is no.”

Joystiq’s carrying what’s supposedly a leaked Wal-Mart spreadsheet that shows the 40Gb PS3 is to be replaced with another SKU in the US in August.
If true, it will be the third PS3 pack to be dumped, following the 60Gb and 20Gb versions. More through the link.

And eagle eye award of the day goes to Blerk, for spotting that the “satin” silver Japanese PS3 bundle announced this morning doesn’t, in fact, come bundled with a Dualshock 3 controller. It’s got a Sixaxis in it, so it says here. If Japanese people want a Dualshock 3 they have to buy it separately for ¥5500 (£26). Which, frankly, is rubbish. This also means that Sony has yet to bundle a Dualshock 3 with the machine.

Australian gamers are soon going to be able to pick up a new, AU$800 PS3 bundle, if this is to be believed. The pack includes a 40Gb machine, a Sixaxis and one of the following games: Heavenly Sword, Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Ratchet and Clank: Tools of Destruction or NBA 08. We have Australian readers. We have the stats to prove it. If that’s you, you’ll be pleased to know that you’ll be able to buy one of these on February 14.

Probably bollocks, but inevitable chatter nonetheless. With rumours of the demise of America’s 80Gb PS3 SKU circulating heavily last week as the result of a “leaked internal memo” from US retailer Best Buy, it was only a matter of time before the internet ran away with itself and started predicting a 120-160Gb replacement.
Sony’s said nothing yet. And we can’t contact anyone to ask, because we haven’t launched.
European gamers can only buy a 40Gb SKU after the 60Gb version was phased out, so all this is pretty much Greek at the moment. We’ll be able to talk to SCEE in an official capacity next week.
