We’ve heard about the 40 gb PS3 hitting Japan, but until today, we didn’t know it was white…or that it was coming with a DualShock3 controller. The new PS3 is set for a Nov. 11th launch – but it’s coming without a memory card slot and SACD reading function…so no backwards compatibility. Also it’s coming with 2 USB ports instead of 4 like previousl PS3 models. It will cost about $341.
Crunchgear believes that we’ll be seeing this same PS3 in the US on Nov. 2nd for $399.
