The slim model was announced about two months ago. They dropped the price of the old model to get people to buy it and clear room for the new model, which is still $199. And you bought one, so I fail to see how it's bad business.
Well, looking at what they did between the older PlayStations and the PSone's...that's entirely possible. I hope they don't get rid of something that could be used in the future (i.e. the parallel port in the back where a Gameshark can be attached)
