Playstation Update Pt. 2

Another Playstation Update so soon? Yes, but today was a big day for Playstation, let alone video games in general.

  • THQ’s recent financial report revealed yesterday that upcoming videogame Frontlines: Fuel of War will not be coming to the PlayStation 3 after all.
  • The Juiced series and the Stuntman franchise, as well as the PS2 version of Destroy All Humans: Big Willy Unleashed have all also been cancelled.
  • According to a post on PS3fanboy.com, the 80 gig PlayStation 3 is being discontinued. The blog says: “an anonymous Best Buy employee has sent us a scan of an internal letter, which notifies employees that the 80GB system is being discontinued.”
    The letter reads:

    “The 80GB version of the PS3 is going closeout and won’t be replaced at this time…It will come off the planogram on Jan. 28. The 60GB version should already be gone from stores. Only the 40GB version of PS3 will be sold in Best Buy stores at this time.”

  • Haze has been delayed. The company expects the title to arrive during the 2008 fiscal year, which runs from April 1, 2008 to March 31, 2009.
