This is soon the end of an era: the PlayStation 3 500 gigas saw its last hours, because Sony decided to stop production.
A statement from Sony says production will stop soon, putting an end to eleven years of career. The first PS3 was launched in November 2006.
It also seems that the updates are coming to an end, thus propelling the PS3 on the altar of obsolete game consoles. But despite everything, the PS3 had a great life and was a great help to Sony as a gaming machine, but also as a entertainment machine in general. Indeed, the PS3 was one of the best Blu-Ray players of the market at the time.
