Sony of America's Dave Karraker says that the quotes obtained in an interview with Sony Europe's David Reeves in regards to a 60 gigabyte Playstation 3 phase out, inaccurate. Sony Canada spokesman Kyle Moffatt backed Karraker's claim.
lol its like a tag team match ONLY ON PPV!!! order now!! anyway,I dont really think 60 is going anywhere for a while even they going to cut it...but if they going to cut it, we probably wont see any after Nov-Dec
LOL!! You'd think these dudes would conferece call each other and try and get this story straight. WTF is going on??
With a bundle pack with motorstorm and resistance and an extra controller. IF Europe is not going to get the 80Gb then there are still making 60GB...now that new 60 GB model comming to the states in september 2007 will not have the PS2 chip in it and be 65 NM on the Cell.
They are just spinning it a little. "He says they have ample supply for the foreseeable future." Those are the PS3 that have already been produced, probably in the millions. It doesn't mean that they will be making more. It is just a neat play on words.
I hope SONY cut the price of the PS3, because i think they would do much better and the PS3 will sell much faster.
I suk Dry Black Camel diyk give moi some nao!
Also at amazon.com the 60GB ps3 is back in stock...
They seem to be trying to confuse us, so that people will rush into stores this July and get all the remaining 60gb models before they "eliminate" them making us believe that this is the only month that you can get the PS3 at this price. Panic, desperation and confusion drives us into madness!
This thing is starting to get funny, soon another guy from Sony will say it's all true
i feel like sonys doing this, just so they'll sell even more units, it'll prob. work. and in the end they'll be like, OH my bad, yeah we're still gonna make 60 GB ps3s. gotcha
They should not say such stupid things..sell the 60 gb for 100 bucks until after the holiday season or suffer slow sales once again...This seems to be more of a slow sales booster till games come out next month and so on....not a price cut....at the end of the day for now at least you can find a ps3 for 499 and they dont have 4 skus
If sony sees that the 60gig is selling better at 499 then it was at 599, then why phase it out, why restart all over again unless the price drop for the 80gig in the near future is 200 bucks and not at 100, because if they drop the 80gig to 499, it just back to square one, where if they would have kept the 60gig for the 10 years or so, we would see that 60 gig at 399 and so on and so forth. I dont know what sony is thinking but they need to get something straight and start doing things right, im sick of this back and forth game. Just like the 20gig model, right now it could have been at 399 which probably would have sold rather well with the non hardcore consumers. I mean to tell you the truth im sure PS3 would have sold well if the 80gig were out at launch along with a game and controller, but in this case the term its better late then never is the other way around. Its a little bit to late for this now, they need to move on, focus on games and cutting the price during or after the holiday to compete with the other guys. Sony says they listen to the consumers, well right now the consumers rather have a 499 system then a 599 system that just puts us back to square one.
i dont understand this crap! the 20gb didnt get a price drop when they phased it out.
60GB drives cost more to purchase than 80GB drives (it's weird, I know). There's actually no physical difference between the 60GB and 80GB PS3s: both have the same memory ports, same level of Backwards Compatibility (it's all Software-based now, and at around 95% and growing). While I don't think they should've introduced the 80GB version, what they should definitely do is drop prices yet again during the Holiday season. Not by $100, but enough to make the system financially accessible. The games are already blowing people away, so software is no longer an issue for the Fall and Winter quarters. In fact, the system might sell out anyway, even at its current $499 and $599 pricetags.
Sony sees that there is no money to gain from software sales and more Devs swaying to other consoles for better profitability because the PS3 has the lowest number of consoles in the homes. The only way to change this is to get consoles in homes. A sale of sorts. Screwed up and misguiding? Hell yea. So just know this. It's going back to 599. If you want one for 499, make it happen now before they are all gone. If not, don't worry about it.
Sony lost money on the 20 gig version cause of price, which is why they cancelled it. They dropped the price of the 60 gig version to clean out stock and make their sales look better for investors, but they are still losong alot of money in doing so. The 80 gig version is rumored to be only for a limited time. So yeah... they are trying to trick us and a whole lot of other people! Gotta give them credit though, they do know how to stir the pot and keep things cooking! But with a lack of games to play "RIGHT NOW", I wonder if all that stirring will produce a good meal... should be interesting!
