Sony to end PS3 production in Japan

After more than 10 years on the market, Sony has announced they will end PS3 production in Japan. The system is still made in China I believe but this represents the last major market for Sony’s 2006 console.

Launched in 2006 for $499-$599, the PS3 represents a lot of stumbles for Sony. They spent the entire generation playing catch up to Nintendo and Xbox but eventually established a console that could really do almost “everything” and had a diverse library of games from developers across the globe.

So goodbye PS3, it was nice knowing you!
