Sony readies 40GB hard drive for PS2
Author: JT Smith
Here's another short ZD item to tell us that Sony is about to bless its PlayStation2 with an optional 40GB hard drive. The new drive will fit into one of the gaming console's expansion bays, and while specific pricing for the North American release of this product has yet to be determined, the Japanese pricing scheme suggest it will retail for less than $200. Sources say it will likely be available in "early 2002" but don't rule out a release that could see the drive on American store shelves in time for the Christmas rush.
