This is great news. If this comes out I hope it pushes MS to drop the price on the Elite and the 120gb HDD.

Would not be surprise to see this replacing the 80GB model sometime in 2008 at $599 with the 80GB dropping to $499.

The important thing is. Now that it has 2 HDMI ports. Does this means we will finally get games that uses 2 1080p displays?

This is the complete media hub they talked about at E3 2005. This will be for Japan only because of the price. The US and Europe won't be accepting of this product because of price. The yound adults of Japan have more disposable income (many live with family) and more people that thirst to live on the edge of technology. I think this product might come to the US once the PS3 has overtaken the Xbox 360 in overall sales (remember...8-10 year lifecycle).

I think sony said some time ago the two hdmi ports were for separate audio video actually, what for the six usb? just release an official hub and everybody happy(x4 controllers, x1 camera, x1 microphone???)
Also doesn't it have the specs the original 2005 ps3 had??

syre if they make the 80 gig 500 then this will work...
but seriously..i dont like this sku thing..
360 should drop the core, make the only 360 skew The Premium...and just call it Xbox 360...and have all the features that the elite has/..and all the consumer has to do is choose if he wants black or white.

PS3 overtake XBOX360 sales? Daydreaming? Games are the answer to the success of any game console and that is something the PS3 does NOT have. First party games have not lived up to the hype and 3rd party have been nothing but inferior ports of xbox360 games. Media hub is more likely the job of the 360 too, not the PS3. IPTV by Microsoft anyone.
