We received a tip that a UPC database website is now listing a UPC for the "Sony PlayStation 3 40GB." Apparently the site gets its info from GS1 sites, which give UPC information to the public. We're not certain how reliable the database is, so we're tacking "rumor" on this story for now. Interestingly, we did test various UPCs we had lying around, like the one on our copy of BioShock (710425299636) and another on a carton of Half & Half (075457427007), and all showed up correctly -- the website claims not to allow user generated data.

If the PS3 40GB UPC listing is correct (we're attempting other avenues of verification at the moment), it would be another log on the rumor-fire that just won't die. The key "feature" of the 40GB PS3 model would be its alleged $399 price tag, bringing the system into much more financially-friendly waters, and hopefully increasing system sales. If this UPC code holds up, it'll be hard for Sony to keep a lid on the 40-gigger much longer, but for now it's still very much in rumor territory.

Update: Engadget's got word of the 40GB model appearing in Best Buy's internal inventory.

Update 2: PS3 Fanboy shows Play.com has it now too.

Nothing would make me happier, because for me, that would make MGS4 100 dollars cheaper.

Looks like Mr Crushin will have a Ps3 much sooner than anticipated.

I can almost taste it now. Almost.

Wait wait wait, don't change the channel.

So the 40gig PS3 doesn't have PS2/PSX backwards compatibility. DO NOT WANT. Guess I will have to wait (or save up more) after all...
Wiryu
meh, that's what I have a ps2 for.

Agreed. Shut up Wesley. Fuck backwards compatibility.

I hate hooking up my PS2 with its shitty composite cables. And I don't want to shell out extra for PS2 components just so it doesn't look like ass, when I could just play on the PS3 through HDMI.

That's what you get for getting one of those fancy televisions. Hah! Looks like I win this time.

You visual snob, love video games for what they are! Stop asking for love from games that can no longer offer it! It's like asking grandma to give you more than five bucks on your birthday. ;)

My grandma is dead.

In all honesty though, its hard for me to go back to PS2 games after playing 360 for so long now. The blurry graphics and low resolution just bug the hell out of me. I tried getting to some old PS2 games I hadn't finished while my 360 was out for repairs, and I just couldn't stick with it (and this was on my old SDTV).

I was just about to ask that too. Who the hell still plays ps2 when they have a 360, DS, etc.

I still do =(
Don't use PS2 component cables on an HDTV. It's horribly broken.
DarkEpyon
I still play mine, though it doesn't get too much action.
