Sony has announced that PlayStation 3 production has ended in Japan, which essentially means that the console is done and dusted. Back in March, the company said that the end would soon be coming, and now it’s put the final nail in the coffin.
The PS3 launched over a decade ago in its homeland; it’ll be 11 years old this November. Up until 2015 or so, the last-gen console was still doing decent numbers in the land of the rising sun, but once the PlayStation 4 really started to hit its stride, sales saw a huge decline. From that point on, it was only a matter of time.
Are you sad to see the inevitable end of the PS3? What are your fondest memories of this stable console from Sony.
I believe many of the true classics are continuing to get remastered onto the PS4 and with the DLC you may not of originally purchased and for roughly half the original price. So are you truly losing what made the PS3 great, the games. I believe not.
As I have recently discovered you can purchase a good spec PS3 for a decent price whether it’s from an ever popular game and console store or over the Internet on Ebay. I wrote a post a month or so ago about the end of days for the ever popular PS3 but as with such console classics like the Snes, Nintendo and others, I’m sure you’ll be able to get your hands on a PS3 for years to come.
