Sony Ends Production of the PlayStation 3 in Japan

The original post on the Japanese PlayStation website was translated by Gematsu and discusses the last PS3 model now available in Japan: the 500 GB console. The changelog simply mentions that this update brings stability and overall performance improvements for the console. Called the PS4 update 4.50, it introduced several enhancements and greater functionality such as the introduction of USB storage device compatibility. The console received all latest sports games from Electronic arts including Federation Internationale de Football Association 16, NFL, GTA V among many other newer titles.

483. That's the number of PlayStation 3 games you can experience on a PlayStation 4 or Windows PC via PlayStation Now circa March 13, 2017. Once there is no more PS3 to support, all of Sony's video gaming resources can be strategically placed to handle everything about the PS4. It is believed that for the PS Plus free games for June 2017, Sony will include Pixel Piracy and Volume.

While a popular feature and something that keeps Sony on par with Microsoft and their Games with Gold service, it's not always possible to please everyone.

Sony has released a brand new firmware update for the PS4 and this firmware update arrived without any official announcement so it was a stealth update for the PS4. Some of the titles are even available on multiple platforms, while many are PlayStation Vita exclusive games.

Floor plans for this year's E3 have gone live and it appears that Sony is going to be the largest presence this year with 43,500 square feet of floor space reserved.

Meanwhile, Sony has also revealed its sales figures during the financial earnings call. Since its launch in the market, a whopping 84 million PS3 consoles have reportedly been sold across the globe.

The now-infamous 2011 massive hack of the PlayStation Network also hit Sony hard, with the company confirming that the personal information of 77 million people had been compromised. The PlayStation 4 has now sold 53.4 million consoles.
