Sony PS3 80GB in Korea

Continuing its announcements today, Sony's Korean division made the surprise announcement of an 80GB PlayStation 3 console. Previously confirmed in a production leak, the console tops the 60GB limit in other countries and offers a third more space for downloads of games and movies from the PlayStation online store as well as extra room for the user's own media collection. Features are otherwise unchanged from the previous high-end PS3 with a multi-format card reader and 802.11g Wi-Fi.

The newly expanded model ships to Korea on June 16th for the equivalent of $555. Sony has so far denied rumors that the model would reach other areas, suggesting that the capacity upgrade will remain limited to the region and may be skipped in favor of a larger model at some time in the future.
