Sony Ends PS3 Support In Japan

Sony PlayStation announced that it is ending repair support for its last PS3 model in Japan.

It will also end repair support for all PS3 peripherals. Ergo, PlayStation is stopping its PS3 support in the country due to the exhaustion of parts inventory relevant to the PS3 models. The end date is 30 April of this year.

Here’s a more detailed post from Sony PlayStation in Japan.

“After-sales service will be discontinued on Saturday, April 30, 2022 for the PlayStation®3 CECH-4300 series and all PS3 peripherals due to the exhaustion of parts inventory.

Customers who wish to have after-sales service for the relevant model should apply for after-sales service through the online repair reception service or PlayStation Customer Support by Saturday, April 30, 2022, and by Saturday, May 7, 2022.

Please send the product to arrive at the PlayStation Clinic. If you wish to send it directly to the PlayStation Clinic without prior application, please send it so that it arrives by Saturday, April 30, 2022.

We will not be able to accept applications or arrivals after the day following the above deadline, so if you are considering applying for after-sales service, please request as soon as possible.

Please note that repairs may not be possible before the end date due to the exhaustion of parts.

We sincerely apologize to customers who are using this product and thank you for your understanding.”

We’ve had some pretty awesome memories of the PS3 back when it launched in late 2006. Well, it was mostly memes from that E3 press conference and also the lack of games, but the console turned itself around with exclusives like Twisted Metal, God of War 3, all three Uncharted games, and The Last of Us.

We’ll never forget “Riiiiiidge Racer!”, giant enemy crabs, and that starting price tag though. Woof.
