White 40GB PS3 for Japan, and black for US, in November 2007. October 9, 2007Posted by stvchang in games, gaming news, PS3, Sony.
Sony’s 40GB PS3 news floodgates have opened. Japan will get the 40GB PS3 come November 11th, available in black and new ceramic white. No other regions was announced to carry the new ceramic white PS3 apart from Japan.
Sharing the same specifications as the European 40GB PS3, the Japanese 40GB version will not have backwards compatibility, memory card slots and only 2 USB ports. Cost? Super low at Yen39,980 (USD$390/RM1200). Also coming out on the same day, matching white DualShock 3, at Yen5,500 (USD$47/RM165).
It is rumored that the US version 40GB PS3 will hit the streets on November 2nd, at USD$399. Expect Sony to announce this piece of news real soon, and hopefully they will announce something for the Asian markets too.
