Hori to release 160GB external drive for the Playstation 3

By now we've all pretty much figured out that Sony will just slowly keep upping the capacity by 20GB until the end of time. That's why Hori has decided to make their own external drive for the console.

Hori will be releasing an external 160GB 5400 PS3 hard drive in August. The drive will be specially designed for use with the Playstation 3 and will get its power from the USB port, so you only have one cord to worry about.

The only thing is that this is really just an external hard drive that they are calling an "external PS3 drive" so that people will pay extra for it. The 160GB drive is going to set you back around $240, now that's salty.
