20GB PlayStation 3 Discontinued

Sony has decided to stop selling the low-end version of PlayStation 3 in North America citing lack of interest as the main cause. This model isn’t even available in the European market.
“At launch, we offered two separate models of PlayStation 3 to meet the diverse needs and interests of our PlayStation fan base,” Sony America’s Dave Karraker said. “Initial retail demand in North America was upwards of ninety percent in favour of the 60GB SKU, so we manufactured and shipped-in accordingly. Due to the overwhelming demand for the 60GB model from both retailers and consumers, we have ceased offering the 20GB model here in North America.”
“In addition to the larger internal hard drive, the 60GB PlayStation 3 features added storage media slots and built-in Wi-Fi not found in the 20GB system. Based on retailer and consumer feedback, we have decided to focus our current efforts on the more popular 60GB model.”
