Sony Drops 20GB PS3 Model

Sony is officially discontinuing the 20GB PS3, just five months after its launch. “This is based purely on consumer and retailer demand, which favoured the ($599) 60GB model 10 to one,” SCEA’s Dave Karraker said. That might be the case, but what is not clear is how Sony supplied retailers.

“Current 20GB consumers will still be 100% supported with software and services,” he told IGN. “Since all PS3s have the same basic architecture. Unlike if Microsoft were to stop selling their Core system, which would allow publishers to actually use their hard drive for gaming purposes, leaving the Core user out in the cold.”
