The reason why Europe won't have 80GB Playstation 3

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe president David Reeves has just announced why Europe won't have the 80 Gb Playstation 3 version:

"The larger hard drive only makes sense in a market like South Korea, which has very high broadband penetration and the people there are used to downloading content, so they require a certain size hard drive."
So, apparently we're not downloading enough movies, tv shows, musics, etc.... Huummm... I guess we can fix that! How about starting a new movement called "David Reeves doesn't like Europeans" to unite all Europeans in a global content downloading initiative? Ohh wait, we already have that (and several others)... it's called BitTorrent!

In the meantime, the "competition" (let's call it XBox) is getting his hands-on a 120 Gb version. Way to go, David...!
