Well this is what Sony wants, people rushing out to buy the last of the stock, then they release a new SKU. I suspect the will have a 65nm 80GB w/ DS3 and no Motorstorm by summer.
They always discontinue before the annouce a new SKU, they try to clear the channels of old stock.
Just use history to guide you... people said after the $499 60GBs were gone the $599 80GB was going to be the only SKU. Low and behold they annouced a $399 40GB and droppoed the 80GB to $499.
They need to ditch the 90nm 80GB for cost reasons and they will also be releasing the DS3 in NA in March.
