    60gb PS3 is NO MO

    http://kotaku.com/gaming/say-what%3F...ure-278039.php

    So apparently the price cut on the 60gb is only temporary since the 60gb will only be on shelves until it sells out. Then you have to pay $600 again for the 80gb.

    So I guess they will just stop doing the 80gb bundle eventually and sell it alone for $500? Who knows.

    They should have just ran with the whole price cut thing.

    I wonder if this was perhaps not suppose to get out until sometime in 2008 and the information just slipped.

    Sony doesn't like making money form its gaming divisions...

    haha Sony is funny. I'd laugh if every 6 months to a year they announce a new PS3 with a bigger HDD with older models continually getting phased out, and their owners feeling a bit screwed over. If so why didn't they just put in a 200-500 gig hdd to begin with and cut out this nonsense.

    I guess it doesn't matter for me personally. I got the price cut, the emotion engine, and I can buy a big ass HDD if I really need it. I don't think I will unless the PS3 gets some tivo like recording or something of that nature in the future, and if so I will want to take advantage of that.

    Sony really makes you wonder sometimes. Personally I'd rather pay less for a 60GB model than pay over the top for 80GB, and I'm fairly sure most people would agree.



    I never add friend codes.

    I think they're doing something like.. $500 until stock runs out, then 80gb with a game. Suppose to have full backwards compatibility too

    They should have kept the 60gb so people who don't want or need 80gb don't have to pay all the money for it ($600 opposed to $500). Dumb move on Sony's part I think.

    The 20GB model is still 100 bucks cheaper and can do all the things that the 60GB model can... RIGHT?

    But that's half silly, half smart.

    I think they're just taking a chance.
    It could work, and everybody will go to the new 80GB, and they'll be happy.
    Or... Not.
    That turtle has a brief case. It must be going to work. I hope it has a good day.
