Sony Playstation 3 Shipping Without Hard Drive

There is a story circulating that Sony will be shipping the Playstation 3 without an external harddrive included. They claim it is to allow users to decide whether they want a large drive or a smaller one. It could also help keep the MSRP down.

However the company has never said that a hard disk would be bundled with the unit at launch, and Chatani’s comments this month seem to suggest it’s erring toward not including one – and perhaps offering the peripheral optionally in the same way it currently sells Memory Card units separately from PlayStation 2.

Chatani also said that he expected people to unplug their hard disks and move them between PS3 units, implying a similar functionality to that of Xbox 360, whose detachable hard disk units appear designed to be portable rather than optional.

This could also backfire as users may begin to feel like they are being “nickel and dimed”.
