Sony holding back on 40GB PS3 for America?

PS3 40GBWe’ve been hearing lots of reports about this mythical cheap 40GB PlayStation 3 just about everywhere but North America. We’re due for good news to land soon right?

Michael Patcher, a market analyst at Wedbush Securities, claims that Sony is postponing the announcement in America because there are tons of 60GB consoles that are still available for sale. Patcher said "These rolling announcements suggest to me that Sony has an inventory control problem, with too many unsold 60Gb units out there, and they don’t want to have to cut the price to clear them."

Well then Sony, it seems we’ve come to an impasse. Your machines are too expensive… but you want us to buy them up to have access to a cheaper version that we won’t buy because we already bought the expensive one? Yeah, sure that makes sense.

Hopefully Patcher is just over thinking things and we’ll hear the good news soon.
