    No price cut, but a cheaper 40GB PS3 launching soon?

    Sony don't want to drop the price of the PS3, but it's looking increasingly like we'll be able to pick up a cheaper model very soon.

    Don't current PS3 owners charge their controllers via the USB port? If thats the only way to charge them then USB ports aren't a minor feature to leave out are they, and lets be honest in this day and age where USB2 is everywhere, how much would it cost to stick a USB Hub in the thing....Mere dollars I'm thinking.

    Plus the backwards compatibility it done via software is it not? So how is leaving that out going make a 40GB version cheaper?

    If this is true then I find it bizarre.

    I'm more confused about what models are out there to buy, whats coming out and what will be obsolete in a couple of months.
