The 20Gb, 40Gb and 60gb PS3’s have all been discontinued in Japan, leaving the 80Gb as the only standard, regularly available SKU. If a notice by Japan’s 7-Eleven is to be believed,then the 80Gb unit is going the way of the dildo dodo soon too. According to the chain retail store pre-orders for the Black, White and Silver 80GB PS3 will cease on Sunday, August 9 at 10am, at the manufacturer’s behest.

Does this mean that Sony will be phasing in the 160Gb model – previously only available as a limited bundle – or is this is a portent to the imminent availability of the oft-rumoured PS3 Slim?

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
