    the hard drives are upgradable so not big news. At least they can now sort out backwards compatibility issues, release more games and improve on board features.

    Yep, hard drive news isn't a big thing like it is with the 360. It takes minutes to swap the Ps3 drive for whatever size you wish

    Yeah the difference between the models isn't that great really. I think this is the year the PS3 will come into it's own, finally getting the titles it badly needs, and less superfluous models will probably help a little, I assume producing less models will lower costs therefore price(hopefully).
