Sony Rebuffs 120GB PS3

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe today rejected claims of a 120GB PS3. The company does "not currently have any plans" to release an upgraded console of the kind in the UK or Europe at large, according to a spokesperson. However, the PlayStation maker also did not account for dwindling stocks of 80GB models in other areas, including now confirmed reports that Best Buy was phasing out the 80GB version in favor of the base 40GB system.

While potentially accurate, Sony's conditional denial repeats previous instances in which the company dismissed reports that later became accurate, such as initial word of the high-end PS3's first price cut to $499 and the unveiling of the 40GB model. Sony has also recently said in various reports that it would continue to adopt the two-model approach to the PS3 but has eliminated all but the 40GB console in Europe as well as in Japan, leaving customers with only one choice.
