Oh Sony……Sony……Why are you so stupid? [UPDATE 2]

13 07 2007

Remember how big the news of the PS3 price drop was? Well, It’s been negated

Sony Europe today announced that by the end of this month, the 60GB PS3 model will be taken out of production in North America, being replaced by the new, technologically inferior (emotion-less), 80 GB model. The 80 GB model will remain at the current price of $599 US Dollars.

Hooray for a week of cheap PS3s?

[UPDATE]: As usual SCEA has denied the rumor. I guess we check store stocks at the beginning of August, to see if it pans out or not

[UPDATE 2]: What a wonderful day this has been, eh? Well, It seems now that SCEA has confirmed that the 60 GB model is no longer in production. However, they have “ample supply”of the 60 GB to last for the next few months. Why, Sony, why? Now I have to shell out an extra $100 for an 80GB when MGS4 comes out next spring 😦

If you’ll notice the publish date, this was early last year. At the time of publishing it was correct.
