No more 80 GB PS3?

I just call Circuit City and ask about the availability of the 80 Gb PS3, one sale person told me Sony stop making it, no more. Is that true?:what:

No that's not true. Look for the MGS4 80gb bundle. I know the best buy near me has a few.

Well... sold out is different than not being produced anymore ;)
Know somebody in the military? Ask them to see if the Commissary has any for sale (no tax is a bonus!)

Hehe, see my post here:

I see Sony replacing the 40GB with a 60-80GB still no hardware PS2 B/C at $400, and the 80GB moving to 120GB, possibly 160GB, for still $500. I predict this instead of a price cut. They'll probably try to hold off until the Holidays or Q1 2009 for a price cut.

Again, just my prediction. I use the HDD increase due to alot of PS3 games now requiring installs, and I think Sony is going to start feeling the heat when gamers start to fill up those drives. LBP will have an Install, MGS4 did, KZ2 probably will, Resistance 2 might cache (not sure if it will install instead) and Fallout 3 is already stated to cache on the PS3. 40GB isn't going to cut it especially after they roll out their Video Marketplace clone and the fabled Home.

Hehe, I'm telling you - it just might happen. The MGS4 bundle is a limited time offer. Rumors were that Sony pulled all their unsold 80GBs to create the MGS4 bundle, and once those sold out say goodbye to the 80GB (again rumors.)

If those rumors are true, we might see a 120/160GB PS3 in the future.

Honestly that's not a bad prediction at all. A Cell+RSX shrink would probably more than offset the price of installing larger hard drives keeping Sony from bleeding more money (or perhaps the ps3 becoming profitable to sell...)

Not to mention a lot of people suffer from the "well gosh Billy this one hur gots one hunnerd'n'twenny mor'o'dem gee-gaw-bites... dats like fo' times bettah'n'all!" mentality :roflmao:

HAha, it took me a while to read that properly.

If any of my prediction comes true I'm playing the lottery!
