PlayStation 3 model differences not interchangeable

By Justin Mann on May 9, 2006, 11:05 AM
More news on the PlayStation 3, it seems akin to Xbox the release of multiple versions of the new console will result in systems that have much more varied configurations than initially thought, the lower priced version of the PS3 will lack several things. Unlike the Xbox, however, an upgrade path won't be available for the PS3, meaning your stock options are your total options. No adding of hard drives, forms, etc are available. And even the low end model will ring up with a $499 price tag, so I suspect that modding communities will jump all over the PS3 and try to outsmart Sony. One thing the higher priced models will support is HDMI output, which sadly is something you'd expect to see on all models, especially with hi-def content becoming so popular and BluRay/HD-DVD making their debut.

Guess the pricier version would be a better choice for $100 more, unless they just ommited the connector and put a smaller drive in the small unit.

I think Microsoft is still going to make more money on Xbox than of what Sony will do on PS3.
