80GB Playstation 3 Officially Discontinued?

The rumor that the 80GB Playstation 3 system is being discontinued keeps getting better and better. We are now getting reports that corporate offices have sent out an internal email stating that stores “shouldn’t expect any further shipments on the higher end, PS2 compatible SKU.” Basically meaning that the only 80GB PS3s stores will receive are the ones they currently have.

So far, websites for BestBuy.com and Gamestop.com have taken down the ‘new’ 80GB system from their database. GameStop.com is now only offering new 40GBs and refurbished 40GB, 60GB, and 80GB. BestBuy.com only offers new 40GBs.

So far, there has been no indication on what might replace the 80GB system. Sony was contacted, and once again replied with “SCEA does not comment on rumors or speculation.

We can assure you we will hear more about this soon.
