    Fire Sale

    As I understand it, the 80gb model is going to switch to software emulation of legacy titles, presumably to save money, and the extra 20 gb + a pack-in aren't substantial cost increases. They might even be spending less total on this new package than on the old 60gb model, which means less loss per unit.

    They're kind of between a rock and a hard place, and this is shifting sideways. They offer a little more (superficially) for the same money, (probably) lose less per sale, get some gains from the 60gb fire sale, and hold out hope that in the long run, gamer's demands for power in an increasingly HD world draw them in and some future games demonstrate that the PS3 can do it better than any other. In the meantime, PSP and PS2 redesigns to increase sales and decrease costs respectively. They don't have tons of other options.

    I still anticipate a real price cut this year. Microsoft actually discussed the need for a lower 360 price point recently, indicating that with their lower chip costs, it's on the brain. When it does happen (holiday time), that's going to pressure PS3 to follow just to stand still.

    this thing was false. It turns out that the dumbass European president of scee said that they will drop it when stock runs out. SCEA denied that and said its not true. What i think and most ppl think is that they will keep both of these sku and then if they do drop the 60gb they will make the 80 gb 499$

    You have it mixed up. They have almost full backwards compatibility right now (in America) but the 80GB won't.

    It wouldn't be too hard. I have already used 13GB and I just got mine a few weeks ago. That is just from stuff I downloaded from the PS store, I could put my music collection and some videos on it and fill it up easily.

    If you read between the lines, SCEA used bullshit saftey terms like "foreseeable future" to "refute" it.

    In other words it is most likely true, wasn't suppose to be released knowledge, and now they are trying to cover it up without lying.

    I heard there's gonna be an interview next week clarifying whether they are discontinuing the 60gb model or not... Because some Sony people are saying it will be, and some are saying it won't be...

    Basically the new PS2 is costing less to make and they are planning to charge the same price.
