New Poll: PS3 External Power Supply

Mr. Ken Kutaragi, through GameDaily BIZ, has given us a small piece of information that may or may not mean that the PS3 will have an external power supply:

“We’ll use heat pipes and a custom cooling solution, but the methods used will be common,” he said. “We definitely aren’t using any proprietary methods… We certainly couldn’t fit a liquid cooling system [inside the PS3]… We’re spending a lot on heat and electromagnetic interference [management]. The power supply could almost be sold separately.

Many people complained about the Xbox 360’s menhir-sized power supply. If you move your console about from place to place, I can see why it would be a pain. But personally, I don’t plan to do that. I’ve got a spot where I plan to put my PS3, and I don’t plan to remove it from that spot until I finish building my basement. So to me, an external power supply is no big deal, even a big one.

What do you guys think?
