20GB, 60GB PS3 Models Discontinued in Japan

The Japanese will no longer be able to purchase 20GB and 60GB models of the PS3, as Sony has decided to cease production of those models to focus on the cheaper 40GB model, which sells for 39,980 yen (approximately US$360) in the country. This model does not feature backwards compatibility support; this void has been filled by Sony which now offers many PS1 games in the PlayStation Store.

It can also be noted that Sony “will launch new models to respond to end-user preferences,” though no exact timeframe was given.
