It was bound to happen sooner or later, I just didn’t expect it to happen this sooner (wait, that’s not right, oh well). According to several retail outlets, including the official online Sony store, the 20GB PlayStation 3 is a thing of the past — you know, like the innoncence of our children. From GamesIndustry:
However, SonyStyle isn’t the only online retailer which has stopped selling the 20GB PS3. It’s no longer available via the websites of Best Buy, GameStop or Electronics Boutique.
Speaking to GamesIndustry.biz after news emerged that US retailers were ceasing to stock the 20GB model, a spokesperson said, “We’ll continue to monitor demand for the 20GB model, from a consumer and retailer perspective, which will be factored into any future European launch plans.”
Why even release two versions like that? If you’re going to go all out and release an uber console, than release an uber console. Don’t give us your tard packs.
