Detachable 2.5" HDD slot x 1
Sony has previously identified a detachable 2.5" (laptop size) hard disk drive as an optional storage peripheral, and it is believed this will slot inside a small rectangular port located on the underside of the unit. However the company has never said that a hard disk would be bundled with the unit at launch, and Chatani's comments this month seem to suggest it's erring toward not including one - and perhaps offering the peripheral optionally in the same way it currently sells Memory Card units separately from PlayStation 2.
Of course, keeping the layStation 3 hard drive optional should keep the actual retail price of the console lower when it launches. It's not entirely clear at the moment how mandatory the hard drive (PS3 HDD) will be for general PS3 gaming, as it also features support for various flash memory media cards like CompactFlash CF, Secure Digital SD and of course, Sony's Memory Stick. Making it an optional add-on could potentially turn game developers away from implementing HDD functionality and benefits in their games however, which in turn further dampens consumer appeal for the peripheral storage unit.

Recent information divulged from SCE chief technology officer Masayuki Chatani suggests that the company is still undecided as to whether this Playstation 3 hard drive will be bundled with the PS3 console as a standard option or not. Indeed, we are no closer in confirming if any HD will be ready for the PlayStation 3 launch in Japan next Spring. Like Microsoft's Xbox 360 HDD , Sony Computer Entertainment's PlayStation 3 will feature a removable, hot-swappable hard drive (PS3 HDD) to store data from games, MP3 and video files and images from digital media devices.
