Just in case you missed the tidbit near the end of Sony's official 40GB PS3 announcement
last Friday, the 60GB PlayStation 3 will indeed be no more once European stock runs out. If you'll recall, Sony already pulled the plug
on the 60 gigger here in the US, and now it seems that it will face a similar fate across the pond. According to Nick Sharples, director of corporate communications for Sony in Europe, "anyone who wants to buy a 60GB PS3 for Christmas is not going to have a problem," so those desperately needing an extra bit of HDD space (and / or backwards compatibility for PS2 titles) should be alright through the end of the year.
