The exact reason is unknown except that it will be done on the manufacturer’s behest but the news from Japan comes that 80GB PS3 might be coming to an end of its shelf life. 7-Eleven, a Japanese retailer received this notice that mentions the “pre-orders for the Black, White and Silver 80GB PS3 will cease on Sunday, August 9 at 10am” and all in-store displays for the 80GB variant will also be taken down on the said date.
The only PS3 that will be up for sale will be a 160GB variant (or maybe there’s a PS3 Slim SKU waiting to be filled soon).
there will be a new version not as bulky but certanly not the slim one. yeah i know how do i know lets just say wait till the 10 or 15 of august and u’ll see.
