According to Karraker, "The 60GB PS3 will be available in North America for $499 until supplies of that unit are depleted. We have ample inventory to meet the immediate needs of consumers in this territory for several months to come. We won't be making any further announcements regarding our hardware offerings in the North America at this time."

In other words, they never had a price reduction. They had a liquidation and a product line shift. Meh It's business. Sony has to make money off their investment in R&D. I isn't underhanded it is a smart move for a bad situation. Sure it stinks for us but the intent isn't to screw us. It is to save them selves from losing more money.

Wow, Sony really has confused a lot of people. From the way I'm reading things:
August - Introduction of the 80gb ps3 (software backward compatibility)
Right now - Sale price of the 60gb ps3 (hardware backward compatibility)

Which gives me the impression that once the 60gb sku with hardware backward compatibility's stock runs out, Sony will switch it to the software BC model.

So it seems that Sony is trying to move out all the PS3's that contain the emotion engine so that the newer emotionless (pun) PS3 models that were first introduced in Europe can take it's place on store shelves. Is it smart business? Sure... will consumers appreciate the fact that once the 60gb model is sold out that the price point is back up to $599? Not so sure...

ENU911 the move will save Sony something like $100 per unit in manufacturing costs.

I knew something was fishy when there was no official "price cut" announcement.

I saw the headline on gamespot: "Hirai: 60GB PS3 'no longer in production'"

Didn't get a chance to read it though.
