As the last “survivor” of its generation, the PS3 certainly had a pretty good run since its launch in Japan on November 11th, 2006.

Especially in its Japanese home turf, the console remained popular until recently, heavily overlapping the first year of the PS4 and even arguably impacting the initial success of the new console, with a veritable multitude of cross-generation games.

All good things must come to an end, and Sony updated the official page of the console with a mention that production is going to end soon in the country.

While there is no information currently for the western market, it’s likely that the console will be discontinue soon on this side of the ocean as well. We’ll keep you posted if we learn anything relevant on the topic.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
