Sony finished crucifying our souls, now hangs our viscera on barbed wire

4:17 PM on 07.13.2007 // Leigh Alexander

Oh, Sony, why must you toy with us?

Let's have a recap of today's rollercoaster, shall we?

First David Reeves of Sony Europe let slip that our somewhat-relieving price drop on the 60 GB PS3 was more like a liquidation sale , a discount on a console they planned to stop making in America once supply sold out. Then, reps for SCEA stepped up to distance themselves from the comments of their European counterparts, saying Reeves' statements were "not accurate."

In the latest tissue-wringing, head-slapping, sigh-inducing installment of the drama, we have this video (I fail at finding an embed code for this, so just click the link), wherein Kaz Hirai essentially states that indeed, the 60GB PS3 is no longer in production after the discounted supply is exhausted. Start at about 1:30 or so, and then just let it ride your skull like a jackhammer of failure. 

I swear, Sony's like the abusive husband I just can't leave. My mom calls me; she wants me to know it's okay to come home. She's worried about me, and I tell her no; no, Mom, he's not always like this. In the silence that follows her melancholy sigh on the other end of the phone, I disconnect the call, to hide and cry in my Metal Gear Solid 4-themed bathroom until I hear Sony cursing and breaking bottles and wondering why I'm not in the kitchen. 

[Many tips for this one-- thanks, everyone.]
