Sony have ceased production of the PlayStation 3.
Gematsu report that shipments of the standard 500GB PS3 – the only version of the console still in production in Japan – have now “ended”, per an announcement on the webpage for the model.
There were three different “models” of the console, with the original lasting for three years before the PS3 Slim was introduced in 2009. Three years after that, the Super Slim version was released.
More than 85 million consoles were sold since its release in November 2006.
