Farewell PS3 It was Fun While It Lasted

By  | 

There is bad news for fans of the PS3 in Japan as Sony have announced that they are ceasing production of the console. The PlayStation 3 arrived in 2005 and it went up against the rival, the Xbox 360.

The PS3 never really put up much of a fight against the Xbox 360 from the start. This is because the 360 came with a lower price tag and it had plenty of charm. The PS3 was put on sale from $500 and this was a bad choice with hindsight.

The tables have turned though as years back the Nintendo Wii was the best-selling console. Now in 2017 it is the PlayStation 4 that has overtaken the Xbox One and the Nintendo Wii U.

The PS3 did make it possible to enjoy games such as Uncharted and The Last Of Us. Of course both the PS3 and the Xbox One are going to take a backseat and become the older generation, but will Microsoft be able to take over with Project Scorpio?
