It looks like the rumors were true. Responding to retailer and consumer demand, SCEA has confirmed to GameDaily BIZ that it will no longer sell the 20GB model of the PlayStation 3 in North America. SCEA's Dave Karraker said that they have decided to focus on the 60GB version.
Dave Karraker, Sr. Director, Corporate Communications at SCEA, issued GameDaily BIZ the following statement:
"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. Based on retailer and consumer feedback, we have decided to focus our current efforts on the more popular 60GB model."
Japan, on the other hand, continues to offer both the 20GB and 60GB, and there's "no word from them on changing their sku mix."
