Sony quietly stops shipping PlayStation TV in Japan
Sony quietly stops shipping PlayStation TV in Japan
February 29, 2016 | By Alex Wawro




Reports are circulating today that Sony is quietly halting sales of the PlayStation TV, at least in Japan, as the microconsole's official Japanese product page lists it as being no longer available for shipment.

It's yet unclear what this means for the future of the PlayStation TV, which launched in Japan back in 2013 and was brought to the West a year later. According to a report from Japanese outfit AV Watch (interpreted by Kotaku) the microconsole is seen to be unnecessary in Japan.

Gamasutra has reached out to Sony for confirmation and further details, but has yet to hear back. The Western arm of the company still lists the PlayStation TV as available for purchase via third-party retailers.

Update: Sony representatives have confirmed to Polygon and GameSpot that the company stopped shipping PlayStation TVs to Europe and the U.S. last year, but seem to be dancing around confirming the same for Japan, stating only that PlayStation TV is still shipping in Asia.
