Sony Will Soon Stop Making Playstation 3 Consoles

by Rainier on March 17, 2017 @ 10:31 a.m. PDT

At the heart of PS3 is the Cell Broadband Engine, one of the most advanced computer processors in the world, that enables massive floating point calculation, and Blu-ray Disc (BD) drive, providing a High Definition (1080p) next-generation gaming and movie experience in the home, as well as up to 50 GB of data capacity.

Sony has revealed on its official website that, after 10 years, it will stop producing PS3s in Japan.

The only remaining model being offered is the Charcoal Black 500GB version, and once that is sold out Sony will halt further shipments, as well as stop releasing updates and end support for PS3 titles on the Playstation Store.

The news should not really come as a surprise since Sony usually puts a 10-year life expectancy on its consoles, and previous consoles were also discontinued after a decade.
