Sony PlayStation 3 with 12GB flash memory heading to North America
A previously-unavailable version of the <a href=" d/" rel='nofollow'>Sony PlayStation 3</a> has will be making its way to North America, after being available in Europe and Hong Kong for a considerable amount of time. The 12GB flash model, shown by the company late last year, has been spotted on the Future Shop website at a cost of $200, but has since been removed from view. <br />
<br />
The console's sudden appearance is a reversal from what the entertainment company said after its launch. <em>Engadget</em> <a href="" rel='nofollow'>was</a> told by SCEA vice president of marketing John Koller in September that "The smaller Flash drive isn't coming to North America," citing that the lower-capacity model was an issue to gamers purchasing downloadable content. An image received by the report also shows the 12GB model in Kmart somewhere in the United States, complete with a sticker advising not to display or sell the model until the 18th of August. <br />
<br />
The 12GB "super slim" PS3 was found to have the option to slide in a 2.5-inch hard disk, alongside the 12GB of storage. This could in theory allow device owners to add their own high-capacity drives to the console, giving them the benefit of faster loading times for content stored on the flash memory, as well as high storage quantities.
