80 Gigs Seem to be “Out of Stock” in Many Locations |

Many stores from several countries have been reporting that 80 gig PS3 units are now out of stock with new shipments to be determined. I’ve heard reports from Australia, Japan and Europe already.

In Japan there is even a sign on the local store stating that the 80 gig units have been discontinued Story and Image Here.

This is playing right into the hand of the Slim’s imminent launch and announcement at GamesCom. Of course this is completely conjecture and nothing is confirmed, but at the very least there is an announcement to be had here of some sort.

To give this story a tad more spin, we all have assumed that a Slim version would take a complete remodeling of our current PS3. Well it seems that the current PS3’s are becomign quite the cavernous unit. Below is an image comparing the 60 gig motherboard to the currently used motherboard.

So what does everyone else think? Price drop? Slim? Nothing?


New Info:

Techradar seems to have come across the rumor of an £85/100 Euro price drop on 8/18.

Story Here

  • The plot thickens … 🙂

  • They need to clear those chunky ones indeed. There might a time where the chunk ones cost less than the slim one, for a while. The slim one could come with bundles that cost the same as the old one.. I can’t tell tho, I don’t have a commercial mindset..

  • Sounds like they’re getting ready for something. I suspect that ,whatever it is, it’ll tie in with Kaz’s keynote speech @ the TGS next month.

    If there is a slim PS3 coming, it’s going to be Sony’s worst kept secret.

  • Excitement is building up

    Its not gonna wait until TGS. This news is coming at GamesCom in around 2 weeks for sure.

    Wonder what the weight diffrence is between the 60G.vs.Newer80G.vs.Slim. That and the sound output (Fans)

    just an FYI, Sony has ordered enough parts to double the manufacturing of the system, so it sounds like, at the very least, there will be a price cut. I wouldn;t be surprised if the slim model was also introduced. Apparently, at GamesCom, Sony also has a 3 hour press conference planned for the event. As far as what the slim system will look like, I doubt the leaked pics will be even close to what Sony actually designed, considering how butt ugly it is 😛
