Following its release in Europe last year, the heavily rumored Flash-based PlayStation 3 is now on sale in the United States and Canada, The Verge has confirmed. Sony's first low-storage model of the venerable console is now on shelves at Best Buy selling for $199.99. It's also available for sale at Canadian retailer Future Shop. Sony had resisted selling a lower-capacity console in light of its emphasis on digital game and media downloads, even though Microsoft has always offered a low-storage Xbox 360. Both systems support adding additional storage through USB.
