Sony Runs Out of 60GB PS3s 152

Posted by Zonk
from the takes-a-look-at-his-watch dept.
Next Generation has word from Sony that they've shipped all of their 60GB PlayStation 3s. They don't have any more in the warehouses; retailers still have ample stocks, though. From the article: "Once all of the remaining 60GB PS3s have been snapped up for $499 apiece, the only option left open to consumers will be to purchase the 80GB model, which currently retails for $100 more at $599. It has long been rumored that once all 60GB PS3 stock dries up, the 80GB will be subject to a price cut, but SCEA has failed to be drawn on the matter to date. 'We won't be making any further announcements regarding our PS3 model hardware strategy in North America until the 60GB model is exhausted and market conditions are evaluated,' the company has said."

    Personally, I wouldn't touch the 360 at this point on hardware issues and stupid add on costs like a proprietary hard drive and headset, and the Xbox Live cost. But that's just me.

    I know that I am just one random person, but I do own the PS3, Wii, and the 360. I can honestly say that out of all of them, between the games and the overall "feel" of the system, the 360 is by far my favourite.

    Again, that is just a lone geek's opinion...

    It's not 100% even with the chips, but it's close.

    Anyway, software emulation on the other models is very good at this point, and will play nearly all games without issue. They've been adding compatibility with each (frequent) firmware release, too, so it shouldn't be a problem either way.

All the simple programs have been written.
