Sony is giving an end to the production of the PlayStation 3 model, which has been the top selling model of the company until today. The PlayStation 3, which was offered for sale for the first time in November 2006, has officially come to the end after more than 10 years of experience. It is announced that the production of the latest 500GB standard console, the latest PlayStation 4 will also stop in Japan.
Sony promised to support the PlayStation 3 for 10 years when the device was put on sale in the markets. Namely, the Japanese technology company has kept its promise.
The PlayStation 3, which has achieved over 80 million sales successes all over the world, succeeded to be an unrivaled console especially in Japan. Unlike Japan, the PlayStation 3 had to enter a tough competition with Microsoft’s Xbox 360 in America and Europe.
It is known that sales of PlayStation 4 have reached a number of 60 million up to now. If nothing goes wrong, it seems that the PlayStation 4 will be left behind by the PlayStation 3. On the other hand, a 10-year life span is not foreseen for the PlayStation 4. It will not be a surprise for anyone to see Sony introducing the PlayStation 5 at the E3 event next year.
