This pisses me off too, as I was planning to buy the 20G model. A pointless memory card reader, wireless access I have no desire to use, and a 60 Gig hard drive I will most likely end up replacing anyway are NOT worth $100.
This quote: "This is based purely on consumer and retailer demand" is only half. Retaillers did indeed have higher demand for the 60G version as that one had a higher profit margin for stores. Consumer, however, were never really given a choice. I've seen countless 60G PS3's available in stores all over the place for the past several months. However, I have NEVER EVER seen a single 20G model on a store shelf ANYWHERE! If we were to use availability as a metric for consumer demand, it would appear 20G model is in far greater demand than the 60G.
