Different PS3 Faceplates? | PS3Blog.net
GamePro.com has an interview with Phil Harrison that doesn’t reveal a whole lot, but I found the pictures attached to the article quite fascinating. It shows the difference between the 60GB PS3 and the 20GB PS3, and the difference is obvious. The 60GB PS3 has a silver area on the front that distinctly identifies it as a different machine than the 20GB version.
Personally, I don’t really like it. The 20GB version is all black and looks a lot more cohesive than the 60GB version. The latter just looks like they slapped on the silver part as an afterthought.
