This company is turning into a joke!! A day after confirming the price cut, they now say they are discontinuing the newly-priced 60 GB model. The price cut will remain in effect until all systems are sold out, and then the only model to be available will be the new 80 GB version at the $600 price point. This will likely take about a month or so. This is the shortest and dumbest price drop in history.

Kudos to Microsoft for not taking the bait, although a price cut is rumored to be looming around the holidays, which will put a dagger right in Sony's chest.

What is everyone's thoughts on this completely pointless move?

$600 for an 80GB PS3 with Motorstorm & Wifi, no PS2 engine.
$480 for a 120GB 360 with headset, game / etc

Something needs sorting, unless i'm missing something. What are the prices for the UK/EU bundles?

The price-cut by Sony was really pointless, but I guess they can't get rid of all the 60GB ones without doing so.

OK...so now we have an 80GB PS3 on its way. A show of hands...Who will be lining up for the ALL NEW, 80GB PS3???!!!:p

Sony...you will need to try much, much harder and think much, much smarter.;)

This is real stupid, so the whole price cut was to get rid of all the 60GB versions? I really don't get it.

Doesn't the 80GB bring Motorstorm too? If so then that isn't bad at all for 600 bucks imo.

From Game:

120GB Elite = 330

80GB PS3 = Not on sale XD

60GB PS3 = 425


It isn't a stupid move though, it is a Sony move.

I know why! No one is buying them, so they made a price cut to get rid of the garbage of a system they have created because they are building up dust and they are tired of looking at all the crap! :)

Bottom Line

Sony Sucks!
Microsoft Rules!

As soon as Sony announced the 80 gig version, it was clear as day that they were going to phase out the 60 gig just like they did the 20 gig. When they sell out of all the 60 gigs they have left, you can expect Sony to drop Motorstorm from the 80 gig and then sell that one at $499.
