Sony has announced that PlayStation 3 production has ended in Japan, which essentially means that the console is done and dusted. Back in March, the company said that the end would soon be coming, and now it's put the final nail in the coffin.

The PS3 launched over a decade ago in its homeland; it'll be 11 years old this November. Up until 2015 or so, the last-gen console was still doing decent numbers in the land of the rising sun, but once the PlayStation 4 really started to hit its stride, sales saw a huge decline. From that point on, it was only a matter of time.
