Well, Tower also announced to day that they are closing down their Canadian operation. Ouch, these shutdowns come on top of the decline in world oil. Can you say "hell in a hand basket"?

Don't get rid of the S3 IS just yet, it still produces fine pictures (6mp is pretty clean) and the AA batteries are a big plus. SX50 has a considerably weak battery (unless you go out and buy a back-up).
I wish i didn't give my S3 IS away 4 years ago.
I'll be keeping an eye on this. My wife is looking for a camera that is easy to use to replace her 7-year-old Canon point and shoot (Powershot S3 IS). I'm steering her in the direction of a SX50 HS right now so I can borrow it for shooting things beyond the 400mm reach I'm currently limited to with my 6D and 70-200 2.8 II + 2xiii extender.
Since that purchase is probably at least 6 months away, here is hoping the SX60 HS will be available then.
