20GB PS3 Officially Discontinued

Posted by Jay on Wednesday, April 11, 2007

According to Gamedaily Biz, the PS3 20GB model is officially gone. Dave Karraker told them, “At launch, we offered two separate models of PlayStation 3 to meet the diverse needs and interests of our PlayStation fan base. Initial retail demand in North America was upwards of ninety percent in favor of the 60GB SKU, so we manufactured and shipped-in accordingly. Due to the overwhelming demand for the 60GB model from both retailers and consumers, we have ceased offering the 20GB model here in North America. In addition to the larger internal hard drive, the 60GB PlayStation 3 features added storage media slots and built-in Wi-Fi not found in the 20GB system. Based on retailer and consumer feedback, we have decided to focus our current efforts on the more popular 60GB model.”


So what does it all mean? Sony not making enough money on the 20GB model? The new 80GB model coming? Price drop for the 60GB model? What do you guys think?
