Chatting at a secret Europeans-only gig in Santa Monica, SCEE boss David Reeves has announced that the 80GB PlayStation 3 - unveiled at Sony's E3 address yesterday - will be released simultaneously "across all PAL territories" (yes, that includes Australia) on August 27. It'll be priced at £299/€400, and as in the US, it'll be straight-up replacing the 40GB unit (which Reeves says is almost out of stock, and will not be seeing a temporary price cut).

@FunkyJ: If he says all PAL territories, that means Australia, otherwise he'd have just said Europe.

@shichi: PAL territories havent had a BC-compatible PS3 for nearly 12 months.
