    Not really sure why they want the larger hard drive space, maybe for more data installation or something. Maybe the Move takes up space. Who knows, but regardless, it's cool.

    It doesn't really matter to me, but that's cool I guess.

    Who needs 320gb?
    Certainly not I but nowadays games do make you install a bunch of stuff onto the hard drive so I guess if you have a lot of games it makes sense.

    I'm a Sony fanboy, but even I can see that this is solely just to one-up the Xbox.

    You can use your own HDD on the PS3 can't you?

    Especially when someone can just buy a used 40GB for $200 and replace the drive with a 320GB HDD for $50

    Yeah, PS3s HDD can be replaced but it has to be with a laptop sized HDD, which is what, like 3.5"?

    For those of you who question why you need a 360GB hard drive...

    well you're forgetting about all the people who download GB's of movies and games onto their console [​IMG] (Not me...I have the 'bay for my blu ray! n_n )

    So it does make sense seeing as it'll allow new family audiences(thanks to the Move) to freely use the console space.
