PlayStation 3 Will Have 60GB Hard Drive, Online Service

After months of silence, Sony is finally revealing details about its upcoming PlayStation 3 video game console, which was recently delayed until November 2006. First, the device will ship with an upgradeable 60GB hard drive, quelling rumors that the drive would be optional. The PlayStation 3 will also be backed by an Xbox Live-like service called PlayStation Network Platform (PSNP). Sexy name, eh? As with Xbox Live Silver, basic PSNP services will be free, although it will also let users play games online. The service will include video chat, messaging, matchmaking (gaming not dating), and game data upload and download functionality. It will also feature online content downloads—similar, again, to Xbox Live. Those plucky guys from Sony will catch up to Microsoft eventually
