Sony Officially Ends Production Of PS3 In Japan

Sony Officially Ends Production Of PS3 In Japan

The PlayStation 3 500GB model was the last one being produced in Japan, and the website now shows shipments for that product as "ended", according to gematsu, which spotted it on the official Japanese PlayStation website. The end of summer is marked by the flood of free games from Sony for PlayStation Plus Subscribers.

With that pronouncement, it seems the PS3 is definitely going to be axed in the USA as reports of the console hurting Sony have been circulating since April of this year. The version of the PS3 you'll find on store shelves today is markedly different than the shiny George Foreman Grill-esque contraption that came out in 2006.

The wait for new free titles for your Sony gaming console extends by a few days. The system came out almost a year after competitor Microsoft's Xbox 360, which debuted on November 22nd, 2005. The formal E3 reveal of the PlayStation 3 was lowlighted by the console's insanely high price and Sony's.questionable enthusiasm regarding certain launch titles (this was the source of the "Giant enemy crab" and "Ridge Racer!" memes). No doubt there will be plenty of PlayStation VR headsets around and upcoming Sony games to play. PlayStation Turkey has leaked the name of two games which are coming to the PlayStation Plus this June. The rotating free games, in particular, was a feature that Microsoft would later emulate as an addition to its Xbox Live Gold membership. These two games are also available on PS4 via the Cross-buy.

Some women-only screenings planned for 'Wonder Woman'
"Apologies, gentlemen, but we're embracing our girl power and saying 'No Guys Allowed, '" the cinema wrote on its website . In the meantime, the chain's Facebook page continues to give cheeky replies to complaints posted there.

The May games are already available for the PlayStation Plus. Moreover, Sony will probably keep support and updates going for the PlayStation 3 for a couple of years, after which it will inevitably peter out, possibly sometime in 2018.

While we don't know what PS3 and PS Vita title have been added, we do know from both an official PlayStation Twitter and YouTube feed that Killing Floor 2 and Life is odd are included. The Xbox 360, officially discontinued in April 2016, had sold 84 million units the last time that figure was reported, in June 2014. The PS4 has sold about 60 million times, which sets it up to take over the sales of PlayStation 3.
