Global Sony chief Kaz Hirai has told European customers who have recently purchased a 40GB PS3 console that they still have "a very powerful machine".

Following news that Sony is to phase out the 40GB model and replace it with a 80GB PS3, Hirai is keen to reassure customers that their games system was still a worthwhile buy.

Speaking to MCV, Hirai said: "The PS3 is a console that evolves and specifications will change over time. Ultimately, if the consumers require a higher capacity hard drive, the ability to do that is there.

"40GB is obviously less than 80GB, but it’s still a high number and a very powerful machine. We strive to evolve and offer the most compelling value we can at any point in time. If consumers require extra hard drive, they can just swap it out.

“We brought in the 80GB because we wanted to make sure we continued offering the value proposition to consumers in the true fashion of PlayStation.

"We heard a lot of response from the consumers basically saying 40GB is nice, but with a lot of additional download products we were offering via the PlayStation Network, consumers were looking for a higher capacity hard drive.

"We thought it was a great time to introduce it at E3, but also make sure that we continued to keep the pricing the same.”

The PS3 is SONY's downfall in the console market, and you know it Karym :)

They are milking the PS2 as much as possible, they're even releasing a new version of the PS2.

Milk it Sony, miilk it long time!

If sony are milking the PS2, then rest assured MS will milk the 360.

At the end of the day, the PS3 is gold top, whilst the 360 is UHT lmao!!

Wouldn't you like to know?

quite simple if the ps3 was hacked like the 360 would you play your games on then PS3 or 360?

i think its not a question of the ps3 lacking gaming quality its just that you need to pay full whack for the games unlike the 360 where you pay for a DVD lol

For those who own both and the 360 isn't hacked which do you prefer?

lol, it's far, far shinier that's about it.

As I sit here playing with the 360 on Xbox Live i look at my PS3 and think 'what a sad failure for the once mighty Sony"

I'll need to buy a new feather duster, it really is a dust magnet.

I think I'll write my name in the dust and take a picture of it, it's the only entertainment I'll get from it. :)

Desperate for it mate, but I'm waiting until it pops up in the pre-owned basket at GAME ;)

360.

Or do you honestly enjoy having to INSTALL your games and waiting an eternity for it to complete?
