    It looks like the PS3 has finally ended it's almost 11 year run, with production finally ending in Japan. The number of PS3s sold is estimated to be around 84 million, an impressive run for any console. The PS3 didn't take the throne for the seventh generation of consoles, however, with that feat going to almost every casual gamer's favorite console, the Wii, which sold well over 100 million consoles.

    How am i supposed to build my power cell home now? No more ps3 to do it with. :ninja:

    Worst part is no more backwards compatible systems with ps2, lets hope ps3 grill can get true CFW sometime. :(

    IIRC the production of the PS2 ended about a year ago in Japan. So this isn't that surprising.

    Whoops, I just checked and PS2 production ended in January of 2013, a few months before the PS4 was announced. Does this mean PS5 confirmed? :P

    PS5 confirmed is false. PS4 and PS4 Pro for at least 10 years lifespan. Maybe 11-12 years lifespan more, who know. :)

    God, they were still making that shitty looking PS3 model? Glad it's come to an end.

    Bu-but the almighty analysts of Forbes and other wonderful, always true websites said there's supposed to be a PS5 in 2018!

    Good luck to Sony. There's no way these will last longer or as long as the PS3 and 360 when the PS4 entered the market as a weaker console compared to the PS3 and 360 on their release and the PS4 Pro can only do so much with the mobile CPU

    Why do you think I followed up with "every casual gamer's favorite console"?
