After some observant readers spotted it at Walmart and Future Shop in Canada, Sony's flash-based 12GB PlayStation 3 has turned up at its US online store. Originally slated for Europe and Hong Kong only, Sony decided to release the memory-challenged device stateside with virtually zero fanfare. It's now listed there for $200, as well as at the above retailers and possibly others -- though we're not really sure, because again, no fanfare. If you'd like to save 70 bucks over the 500GB version and skip all the spinning parts, hit the source

The limit on the thread title makes this announcement way too interesting for its own good.

Not an expert but if you open the device, add a new HD and make some tweeks it can work :)

I heard that you CAN, and once its installed the system automatically disables the built in 12gb flash drive. (I would prefer someone to confirm this first, please ;))
