60GB PS3 Not Getting the Axe

When David Reeves, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe's Pres said that the 60GB PS3 was history after this batch of stock goes dry, he was either wrong, or accidentally spilling the beans. Sony is now officially saying that the PS3's 60GB version will be around for awhile. So no fears about losing the console's hardware PS2 emulation to the sands of time, just yet. [Kotaku]


Update: It's actually being discontinued. See here for details.

Sony is more and more of a complete clusterf#&* every day. Their own executives can't tell what's going on.

I'm more and more convinced that Sony's company culture is corrupt to the core, and it is eating them away on the inside.

According to the latest reports on [EvilAvatar.com] and Joystiq, the plan is to let the $500 60 gig system run its course, which directly contradicts this news article.

"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 our opinion, it's a touch disingenuous for Sony to just now be bringing this information to light, even though Karraker goes on to insist that this is not a bait-and-switch. If that's the truth, why make it seem like the company was returning to a two-SKU strategy when that was clearly just temporary?

I don't believe anything Sony says any more since it is clear they blatantly lie.
