PS3 capacity boost claims are claptrap, says Sony UK
No more storage for you
Sony has dealt a blow to any storage-hungry PlayStation 3 gamers by officially denying that it’s planning to introduce either a 120GB or a 160GB version of the console into the UK.
European PS3s aren't getting more storage capacity now - or tomorrow
This week, rumours have been flying around that the company’s due to phase out production of its 80GB PS3 in the US to replace it with either a 120GB or a 160GB model  for the same price. UK gamers hope that the sale of a larger capacity PS3 in the US would be mirrored in over here.
Well, no it won't. A spokeswoman at Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) today told Register Hardware that it “has no plans to bring either a 120GB or a 160GB PS3 into the UK”.
It's been suggested that the higher capacity hard drive might appear alongside the anticipated PS3 TV tuner, the PlayTV , which Sony announced in August 2007 ahead of the product's scheduled "early 2008" launch. PlayTV contains two tuners to allow the PS3 to operate as a full digital video recorder (DVR).
In a double blow, the SCEE spokeswoman also denied that any larger capacity machine will include a DualShock 3 controller, as also rumoured yesterday. She instead stuck to her guns and reiterated Sony’s 2007 speech  that the rumble-enabled controller will appear in the UK and US at some point during 2008.
