Apparently, Sony Computer Entertainment of America has reacted with a bemused "WTF?" to David Reeves of Sony Europe's assertion that the 60GB PS3 is being liquidated, chalking it up to misinterpretation.
A rep for Sony of America, talking to Next-Gen.biz, said:
"The foreseeable future" isn't an outright rejection of Reeves' prior statement that the discounted American 60GB PS3 would be discontinued once supplies ran out, but the rep also clarifies:
