Sony (NYSE: SNE ) has tested reports that it’s ceasing production of the PlayStation 2 game console. Rumors of the previous console’s demise leaked earlier this week on a Japanese language website, The Inquirer reports . But now the electronics giant has confirmed that production is ending at the 12-year-old system. In an email sent to journalists, a Sony spokesman said, “Due to PlayStation 2 now being over 12 years old, we now have decided to stop future production of the console and concentrate on our newer and more standard platforms, PS3, PS circulate and PS Vita. We’re very comfortable with what now we have achieved with PS2.
The PS2 was technically replaced six years ago by Sony’s PlayStation 3 console. But that did not cease the older gadget from racking up higher than 150 million devices in revenue throughout its time for sale. The 12 years the PS2 was at the market is a record for game console longevity. With the closing of PS2 era, rumors has been swirling about whether Sony will announce the approaching PlayStation 4 . The firm is inviting industry journalists to an event called “Destination PlayStation” in late February through which it’s expected to make the announcement about its next console. Whatever Sony does with its new console, it’s going to want to compete with the Nintendo’s (PINK: NTDOY ) already released Wii U and Microsoft’s (NASDAQ: MSFT ) upcoming Xbox 720.
