Sony has announced that it will be launching its 40GB PS3 in Japan on November 11th. In a surprise move Sony has also decided to offer a choice between the usual black console and the favored Sony alternative “Ceramic White”. As mentioned in previous articles the 40GB PS3 will not feature backwards compatibility and is expected to retail in Japan for 39,980 yen (about US$340).
The PS3 is also set to receive its first Japanese price cut (if you exclude the one it received before launch) on October 17th. The 20GB version is to be be marked down to 44,980 yen ($383) and the 60GB to 54,980 yen ($468).
In yet more announcements from Sony the DualShock 3 is to be let loose on November 11th in both white and black. The DualShock 3 will not be bundled with systems and will be available for 5500 yen ($47).
While the 40GB PS3 has been announced practically everywhere but the US, such announcements are expected to happen soon.
