US retailer Target is listing the much-rumoured 40GB PlayStation 3 on its inventory database, pointing towards a release date for the new model at the end of October.
According to reports from Engadget, the 40GB PS3 is listed down for release on October 28, putting it slightly ahead of its rumoured unveiling on November 2. As predicted, the machine is expected to sell for USD 399.99.
The 40GB SKU was released in European territories last Wednesday. It does, however, exclude a number of features present in other models, featuring only two USB ports, and dismissing PlayStation 2 backwards compatibility and multi-memory card slots.
