Cheaper 20GB Playstation 3 disappearing from stores

20GB PS3 is vanishing

Although the $600 price of the 60GB PS3 has been one of the major complaints about Sony's console, the 20GB model ($500) is becoming increasingly hard to find, notes PC World. Major retailers such as Best Buy have stopped sales entirely, and even Sony itself no longer lists the product on its SonyStyle website. This is a reaction to sales, says Satoshi Fukuoka, a spokesman for the company's gaming division. "The line-up [at SonyStyle] is decided based on market demand and so it's not surprising that they are not selling it on their Web site but if you go to a retailer you can find it." He adds that the 60GB model has always been more popular.

These developments are perhaps not unexpected, as gamers can already buy a 20GB Xbox 360 for $400, and Microsoft will launch a 120GB 360 on April 29th for $480. Sony appears set to counter this with an 80GB PS3.
