Sony have now clarified the situation surrounding the end of the PS3 production in Japan.
A statement from PlayStation confirms that PS3 shipments in Europe terminated March 2016. Shipments in US terminated Oct 2016, while Asia has terminated at the same timing as Japan.
It follows news posted on the official Japanese product page, which has been reported this week.
"PS3 launched over 10 years ago in November 2006, with state of the art technologies including a high capacity Blu-ray drive and pre-installed HDD," the statement from Sony reads.
"With the performance to deliver entirely new visual experiences, PS3 also provided users worldwide, with a unique network service and access to online games and digital content downloads.
"SIE’s vision to deliver the best entertainment experience to consumers has not changed and with more and more users shifting to PS4, and with PlayStation Now available in countries including North America, UK, Japan, Belgium and Netherlands, allowing users to easily enjoy PS3 games on their PS4 and PC (PC available in Japan at a later timing), we have decided to terminate the shipment of PS3.

Uncharted 4 Lost Legacy DLC for PS4
It’s been awhile since we heard anything about a new No Man’s Sky update being released by developers, Hello Games.
The latest was the Pathfinder update, a massive free expansion that provided a lost list of new features.
The Pathfinder Update added introduced PS4 and PC players to new planetary vehicles, base sharing, PS4 Pro support, ship/weapon specialisation, permadeath mode, and much more.
There were also various visual improvements made to the game, as well as a new photo mode that’s proven popular with the game’s fanbase.
The new screenshot tool lets players change the time of day, increase or decrease fog and cloud levels, unlock their camera for new angles, and add filters.
This has been the main stuff Hello Games has been sharing in recent months through their official Twitter, without much else on any new content.
However, the team did provide a very short confirmation this week on whether they were still developing for No Man’s Sky on PS4 and PC.
When asked if they were still developing by a fan, the official account replied: “We are!”
Unfortunately, no exciting new details were shared on what the team has been working on for the past few months; it was recently revealed that the studio had in fact expanded.
Known to have quite a small team, The studio has now filled several new development spots, which hints at either more NMS expansions, or new games on the horizon.
