Sony announced the discontinuation of the support also for the latest model of PS3code CECH-4300, in JapanConsole repairs will only be available until April 30, 2022.
PlayStation 3 received a system update last June, but we are talking about a platform that made its debut in the Japanese market during 2006, well fifteen years ago.
What will change in practice is that users will no longer be able to use the repair service by Sony for the PS3 Super Slim: those who have already booked will be able to enjoy an extension until 7 May, for all the others the aforementioned date of 30 April applies instead.
The interruption of support is part of the normal procedures for closing the life cycle of a console, which in the case of PS3, PlayStation Vita and PSP already materialized a few months ago with the closure of the PlayStation Store.
The Super Slim version of PlayStation 3 was launched in 2012, six years after the debut of the console, the result of a proven production process and components available at reduced prices.
