Sony exec David Karraker said regarding the 60GB SKU,
“We no longer have any inventory in SCEA warehouses. All inventory has been purchased and shipped to retailers,”
It sounds like there is still plenty of stock for the moment, but the time is drawing near where there are supply issues with the 60GB SKU.
Now, place your bets everyone!
Price Drop: Point of Entry stays below $599
I’m betting on this one. While Sony definitely doesn’t always do what seems to make the most sense to us, I’m still betting they will continue to provide sub-$599 points of entry. Ozymandias bet on a $399 point of entry, which seems a little optimistic, but we shall see.
While Sony has been clear about their intent to return to a single SKU approach, I suspect that may not rule out different bundling options as they are doing with the forthcoming revised PSP launch.
No Price Changes: Point of Entry returns to $599. No cheaper options available.
IGN, Arstechnica, and other sites have assured us that this is what will happen. I don’t think they have any insider information, they just seem to be reporting their speculation as fact and adding a negative spin.
