Reuters is reporting that the 40GB PS3 is coming to the US. I'm kinda tempted to get one for its Blu-ray capabilities but the one game I'd like to play on it (Guitar Hero) won't work due to it being backwards incompatible with PS2 games. ... tion3_dc_3

Sony Corp (6758.T) will launch a cheaper model of its PlayStation 3 in the United States, hoping to attract more buyers as it goes up against rival game consoles from Microsoft and Nintendo this holiday.

The company also cut the price of its highest-capacity model by about 17 percent.

The new version of the PS3 will come with a 40-gigabyte hard drive, cost $400, and go on sale on November 2, said Jack Tretton, president of Sony Computer Entertainment America.

The price of the 80-gigabyte version will be cut to $500 from $600.

I am also considering picking one up, mainly for the Blu-ray capabilities. At $399, it's certainly the most inexpensive, and probably one of the best supported Blu-ray players.
