British site Trustedreviews.com claims a "rock solid" source says a larger hard drive-equipped console is just weeks away, also spreading rumor that Microsoft may be seeking to add a Blu-Ray drive as well.

According to the Financial Times, Sony Electronics' US President, Stan Glasgow, has confirmed that the company is in talks with Microsoft in reference to offering a Blu-ray drive for the latter company's console.
