In an interview with GamesIndustry.biz, SCEE President David Reeves let us in on the truth behind the 60GB PS3's price drop -- apparently, the 60GBs are getting the markdown in America because Sony's going to stop selling them here.
Well, that explains that, doesn't it?
Reeves also explains that, owing to a lower cost of memory in Europe, the difference in cost between a 60GB PS3 and an 80GB PS3 there is "just Euro cents; it's nothing," and that therefore it makes more sense to just stick to one model:
He also says the fact that their 60GB "has about 88 percent backwards compatibility," compared to our 100 percent.
Looks like if you want a discounted PS3, you should grab one now.
