  1. because they made the 80 gb version the same price as the 60 use to be so its better for you, sucks for me cause i got the 60

  2. My local Wal-Mart still had the 60gb right next to the 40 and 80. It cost the same as the 80 but the 60 is a better machine. I don’t need one since I have the 60. Maybe I should buy whatever they have left and sell them on ebay.

  3. they stopped selling them as people complained they were too expensive – try 2 find 1 cos they are completely backwards compatible with the ps2 games and the 60GB version also has many other xtra features

    cya!:)

  4. I’m sorry but the 60 GB Playstation 3 has been discontinued and is no longer in stock. The 40 GB doesn’t have backwards compatablilty though. The reason the 60 GB PS3 is gone is a buisness move from Sony. If your planning on buying a 60 GB Playstation, go to Ebay.com or Craigslist.com for places people are selling them. Watch out though. Due to there scarcity they are about twice as much.

  5. they have dis-continued them, another words sopped making them!

    Best place to try now would be ebay. for a 60gb or make do with the 40gb

  6. In the Uk they have stopped making 60gb models for good, so there is only the 40gb ones left which has a few of the functionalities removed mainly back compatibility but other than that its an all singing all dancing ps3, really its great value nothing wrong with it.

    However if u really want back compat. then i think there are rumours of a new 80gb model being released in uk and europe early on in 2008 if you want to wait. Either that or import an 80gb model from north america now.

  7. they stopped selling 60 gb to sell the 40 gb

    my advice DONT buy 40 gb it wont play ps2 games

    just buy a decent second hand 60 gb model. your bound to get one in very good condition

  8. I CHECKED ARGOS AND IT SAID ON THEIR SITE THAT IT HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED AND ON AMAZON THEY ONLY HAD THEM SECOND HAND

    SORRY ABOUT CAPS
