Sony is expected to offer optional hard drives for the PS3 with potential memory capacity of 80 or 120 GB. It remains to be decided whether the standard version of the PS3 will come complete with a hard drive. The operating system has also yet to be clarified. The integrated Cell processor will be able to support a variety of operating systems (such as Linux or Apple's Tiger).The operating system has also yet to be clarified.

' I have to agree with PowerHouse here. I think these companies are full of shit, and have the wrong idea of a "console" I just want a simple version of a console that plays online. Why waste a good amount of money on a console thats packed with pointless over the top shit like this?

But honestly, The only reason I would buy a console and games for it is because I don't want to pay for a new computer- the console is cheaper. Making a console like this defeats the purpose, as it has to be hugely expensive if it's going to be made to run retail operating systems AND playstation games.
