Today I have a new PS3 rumor for ya guys.
The rumor comes from an EBgames employee who says that EB and GS will start taking preorders for the PS3 soon. They will be offering to different versions to preorder.
The $399.99 version
Now your expecting the $299.99 version right? wrong.
According to him there will also be an ultra expensive version priced at $599.99.
Supposedly the cheaper version will not be able to play Blu-Ray movies, only blu ray games. and the ultra -eat only ramen noodles for 4 months so you can save up- version will have all the bells and wistles hopefully, but no word of an included HDD.
Further evidence of this is that GameStop has started listing PS3 games on their website.
hmmmm, the plot thickens.
The problem with the cheaper SKU is that it plays blu-ray games (as if there will be any) and not movies, so techinically it just would require a software update to unlock it. Hackerz would have a field day with this.
and 2 SKU's? I thought multible SKU's were bad? I guess not. I guess there good now since Sony has them.
Personally I don't know what to make of all this, but here's the breakdown.
EB and GS taking preorders? Definetly true
2 SKU's? I'd say so
Blu-ray less PS3? WTF? no!
