Sony releases $399 40GB PS3 for the US


Wow! Maybe now it’s time to get the Sony groove on and grab this thing?

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Sony will announce their 40GB PS3 today for $399. Right, the same PS2 incompatible, 2x USB port model already announced for the rest of the gaming world. That’s $50 more than Microsoft’s Xbox 360 (with 20GB disk) and $150 more than the Wii. Still no date, or official press release from Sony but that should be rectified on the quick as the US wakes up to a retrenched, domestic console war.
