Sony discontinues 20GB and 60GB PS3's in Japan

  • Posted January 10th, 2008 at 02:29 EDT by

Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCEI) announced today that Japan will no longer receive shipments of 20GB and 60GB PlayStation 3 consoles. The final shipment will be sent out sometime this month, so only the systems that are currently in circulation will be available.

According to SCEI, this move was made to further push the sales of the 40GB PS3 bundle. Our guess is that they are also preparing the market for the release of the new 40GB Devil May Cry 4 bundle which is set to hit at the end of the month in Japan.

So if Japan is still wanting a fully backwards compatible PS3 now, they better head to the nearest retail store now as supplies are limited. Stay tuned for more information.
