Sony's 12GB flash-storage-based PlayStation 3 was originally only expected to launch in Europe and Hong Kong, but someone in Sony made a decision to release the device not only in Canada, but in the United States as well.

Today, Sony released the new ridiculously low storage PS3 console to the US via its PlayStation online store. The device retails for $200, which is just $70 cheaper than the normal PlayStation 3 with over 480GB more storage. While flash-based storage in a console is a good idea, the thumb drive I was given as a freebie by my insurance company contains more than 12GB of storage.
