Sony explains decision to discontinue 60GB PS3

"40GB machine represents all the power of PS3" says platform holder

SCEE has given the reasons behind its decision to phase out the 60GB PS3 in Europe.

This morning, the format holder told MCV that once remaining stocks of the SKU had sold out in the territory, the 40GB PS3 would be the only model available to consumers.

That's a very stupid idea....and reason is. They are obv bringing in a bigger, better model - 80gb?

No it's not... YOU are the stupid one.

If you're loyal to SONY then please agree/defend on any SONY's decision! SONY always win, you can't beat it with your xtard 360 cowboys!

P4life, you are kidding right? i mean no one is really that brainwashed, right, someone please tell me this dude is joking, he cant be that stupid.

thereapersson4485d ago

There is no PS2 backwards compatability!

@ Jeremy you fail. SONY CONTINUES TO WIN.. no cowboys can stop us, sorry.

@ thereapersson - stop crying son! we know you're a great looser, go back in your cave as we PLAY B3YOND.

thereapersson4485d ago

SonySoldiers is a worthless gimmick and nothing more. Tell ya what, you should take his bubbles so he gets put on auto-ignore.

techie4485d ago (Edited 4485d ago )

120gb PS3 THEN.

SonySoldiers don't be so rude.

The dividing line has been drawn. Everything to the left of that line is the xbox360 and xbox360 multiports. Everything to the right of that line is the PS3 and the loyal PS3 developers like Insomniac games.

The following link is a Grand Turismo5 versus Real-life comparison quiz. Let's see how you do. Take the quiz and see the power of the PS3 rather than the smoke & mirrors of the xbox360. PS3 fans, you might want to try for yourself...enjoy the true next gen experience on the utlimate home theater console -- the PS3.

Power of Green, you can take the quiz if you want, but you might get hurt when you see how good the PS3 really is from this quiz. I suggest you don't take it. I don't know how old you are, but I feel concern for you for some reason. In your other posts, you seem hurt.

Unless you got all 14 answers on this quiz correct on the first try with 100% certainty, with absolutely no doubt at all while you were taking the exam, I don't think you should click disagree. Clicking disagree without passing this test in flying colors shows (hopefully to yourself) that you're untrustworthy, pigheaded, and easily amazed by microsoft's smoke and mirrors. You know who you are. Thank you. Now take the quiz.

SING WITH ME! YEWWWWW SO GLAD I BOUGHT IT I GOTS BC COMPATIBILTY WEEEE!! Everyone else will.....after a long time when the firmware updates roll in....but YEAH WOO.

But srsly....why? Must be part of the 'bigger' business strategy picture. Who knows?

Mr Marbles4485d ago

you ask, because they want to actually sell some consoles LOL, the others were too expensive, its that simple.

wil4hire4485d ago

Its bs until otherwise.

xhi44485d ago (Edited 4485d ago )

that's right, i remember the article about sony registering and patenting the 160 gb model of the ps3, and david reeves said that there is no point in bringing a 80 gb model to europe when they can bring a 160 gb model. So yeah, they are obviously bringing in the 160 gb with all that extra listed home media stuff, but the only question left is, when?

but i guess they wouldn't introduce it for a while because consumers will feel like they are buying an inferior product.

SWORDF1SH4485d ago

they will bring out another sku after the 60g runs out. the reason aint gonna tell you is because why would they reveal there plan to competitors so they can plan on how to countereact. this is why sony denies a lot of things when the are asked and it turns out its true. there plan on marketing the ps3 is a lot more important to keep under wraps.

Quickstrike4485d ago

PS3 to buy making it easer for consumers to chose to get.
the less models there are the more likely a person will buy it.
we are up to what? 10 different 360's? one's with the RRoD and the one's that aren't supposed to have it but still have it

jaja14344485d ago

Well 3
Core,One with HD,and Elite.

I guess you could count the new ones with the Falcon chip, but thats just progression of the hardware, not really a new SKU.
But I doubt you really care.
