Default 60GB PS3 Discontinued??

On the eve of the $100 price drop for the 60GB PS3 comes news that once the current inventory of 60GB PS3's is sold out Sony will only offer the 80GB model for $599. So in essences this current price reduction will only last as long as current 60GB PS3 stock last.

If that's true, then it's kinda underhanded.

Seriously, if they remove the emotion engine entirely from all available SKU's, forget it. Unless they seriously improve their emulation, I've lost interest. The PS3 has so few games available that I'm interest in, I'd most likely be playing lots of PS2 games. Well that and bluray movies.

It's still not clear on what happens after the current stock of the 60gb models is cleared. Do they abandon that price point all together? Will the 80gb model take it's place? Who knows what they have planned.

Yeah I just read another article here:
http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post...3-remains.html

"SCEE president David Reeves has told GamesIndustry.biz that he expects the 60GB model of the PS3 to be sold out by the end of this month throughout North America, and Sony won't be making more of them."

That IMO is a pretty crappy idea. But I wouldn't be surprised if they announced a newer 60gb model that is the same as the 80gb model less the EE chip and motorstorm.

This is from SCEE, He has no control over what happens in the USA so I would wait for SCEA to comment prior to passing judgement. I don't think it will be the case and if it is I see the 80Gb dropping in price then to fill the gap. Sony gained too much positive feedback from the price drop and pulling such a retarded move would be just well retarded.

Remember, the SCEE guys have said some really stupid things in the past that never ended up being true.

According to the original article software emulation is 88% compatible with existing PS1 and PS2 titles. Not bad.

Sony Europe's David Reeves:

Quote:
Let's understand what the Americans have done. They're going to introduce an 80GB model at $599 with MotorStorm on August 1 and they've got stock in trade of the old model. They're just selling it off, they're not dropping the price. The price from August 1 is going to be $599 because all the 60GB models will have gone. They've got to find a way to get rid of the old stock and that's what they're doing. We don't have that problem in Europe.

And you need to learn to read...

SCEA (You know Sony Computer Entertainment of America) said that his comments are wrong because they were aimed at if they were to drop the price in Europe. Reeves has NO SAY IN WHAT HAPPENS IN AMERICA!

Quote:
Apparently the confusion arose from Sony Europe's David Reeves explaining that if they cut the 60GB price in Europe, they'd run out of stock in Europe by the end of July.
