Many may remember when the PS3 first launched on November 11, 2006 in Japan, November 17, 2006 in the US and March 23, 2007 in Europe... as they say all good things must come to an end, and recently Sony's Japanese Page announced via Hachima Kikou that they are ceasing production of the PlayStation 3 console in Japan soon. :cry:

To quote from DualShockers.com on the news: "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."
Rough translation: It is Denpa. March 2017. This means that PS3 will be shipped this month. In other words, it means production ended. Ten years have passed since it was released on November 11, 2006. I never thought that I would do my best at working as active for such a long time. Anyway, thanks for your effort!

:arrow: Update: We knew it was coming, looks like it's official now... to quote from Gematsu.com:

PlayStation 3 production has ended in Japan, the official Japanese PlayStation website revealed. The page for the 500 gigabyte standard model, the only remaining PlayStation 3 model in production in Japan, lists shipments as “ended.”

PlayStation 3 first launched in November 2006.
