November 21, 2007 // 3:42 pm - Steve Fosted of SCEE has clarified that the 40GB PS3 SKU is the model of choice going forward and the 60GB SKU has already been stopped in production. He also confirmed that the 40GB is not just the model of choice in SCEE regions but also worldwide. To quote:

GN: There seems to be some confusion as to what PlayStation 3 models are going to be available in South Africa going forward – obviously currently the 60GB and the 40GB that just came out now. But is the idea to phase out the 60GB and bring in the 80GB at a later stage?

SF: Well, there has been a lot of confusion and speculation about the different models we have in the market. I think the confusion comes because of the different territories that we operate in. For example, the US has a different model structure than the European, which has a different model structure to the Japanese. Ultimately all of those are rationalising, becoming as one.

The model of choice, going forward, is going to be the 40GB. So when you say the 60GB is going to be phased out, that is absolutely correct. And our manufacturing plant has already stopped production of 60GB and there is no truth to what you say about the 80GB – it's a fabrication, or a misunderstanding.

GN: So the only model going forward, worldwide, is the 40GB?

SF: Correct. "Worldwide" is the important point here.
