Earlier this week it was announced that South Korea would be getting a new model of the PlayStation 3 console, sporting a larger, 80GB hard drive. So far Sony has said that there are no immediate plans to release the new machine--said to be identical to the European model in every other way--in other countries.
The reasoning behind releasing an 80GB PS3 in South Korea is now becoming clearer--Sony plans to offer video-on-demand services to the region, reports the Korea Times.
Sony Korea spokesperson Park Seo-yun told the newspaper that the company was in negotiations with possible partner companies for the VOD service, although she declined to name them or offer a timeline. The PS3 is due to be released in South Korea on June 16.
An anonymous Hanaro Telecom--a Korean phone company--spokesperson commented, "We are negotiating with Sony and the atmosphere is pretty good. We hope to be able to reach an agreement in June."
