Sony gives gamers the middle finger...again

Sony's recent announcement of a $100 price cut on the PS3 was met with a sigh of relief across gaming-dom.

Finally, we all thought, Sony has done something right. Granted, a 60GB and an 80GB PS3 was potentially confusing to the average consumer, but hey, you could get a PS3 for $499, so who was going to complain.

Now, Sony has come out and said that they will no longer make the 60GB PS3 and that the $100 off price will only be valid as long as stock remains. At that point, the only PS3 available will be the 80GB for the too-expensive previous price of $599.

This move effectively gives gamers a double middle finger. First, all of those gamers who purchased the 60GB PS3 for $599 now have a lesser model. Ouch. That hurts.

Second, Sony's "price cut" is really nothing of the sort. It is simply a sale to get rid of the stock of the lesser PS3. It's a dirty, disingenuous trick.

Sony continues to rub consumers the wrong way and this latest move is just one more example.
