80GB PlayStation 3 Bound for South Korea

According to official information posted on the PlayStation Korea website, the territory will be getting an 80GB hard drive inside the PS3 when it launches June 16. Neither the 20 GB nor the 60 GB PS3 consoles will be available in South Korea. Aside from the 80 GB hard drive, the hardware of the Korea-bound PS3 is identical the European model – which also means software-based, instead of hardware-based, backwards compatibility. A spokesperson for Sony Computer Entertainment Europe noted “the chassis of the 80GB Korean PlayStation 3 is identical to the chassis of the European version. The only exception is the larger hard drive. At this moment in time, there are no plans to introduce the 80GB version of PlayStation 3 in Europe.” Sony Computer Entertainment America has yet to provide comment on the 80 GB PlayStation 3 announcement.
