In-built PS3 HDD confirmed

Sony's PlayStation 3 is to come bundled with the necessary 60GB hard drive when the next-gen console launches in November, it has been confirmed.

After the announcement made at last week's PlayStation business briefing, everybody knows that PS3 will require a detachable 60GB hard drive. The drive will also double up as a home server, provide online access and even has Linux installed, as your mother could probably tell you.

But there was one crucial detail that was left unclear - would PS3 owners have to buy the HDD, or would it be bundled with the machine? It's the latter, thankfully, as has been confirmed by website Next-Gen. Larger HDDs will also be made available when PS3 is released.

Which, of course, sounds perfectly reasonable. So there you go, console war fans - PS3 is officially three times better than Xbox 360, or something.
