In other words, if you want a PS3 with full PS2 backwards compatibility, buy one soon
Sony elaborated on previous comments made about 60GB PS3 inventory stock on Wednesday, confirming that only retail supply of the $499 machine remains and suggesting that the expected 80GB price drop is imminent.
"We no longer have any inventory in SCEA warehouses. All inventory has been purchased and shipped to retailers," Karraker said.
"We don't have visibility as to if that is on their store shelves or in their warehouses at this time. However, based on inventory reports from our retailers, there is ample supply still left in the channel."
On Tuesday, it was revealed that Sony's online inventory had been fully depleted. In July, after slashing the PS3 price by $100, the company said that the now discontinued 60GB PS3 would be available for several months.
Now the question one everyone's mind though is - will the 80GB model drop down to $499 once the 60GB model is completely gone?
