The PlayStation TV is being discontinued in Japan.

According to Destructoid, via NeoGaf, production on the PSTV has stopped in Japan. On PlayStation Japan’s official site, Sony is no longer shipping new products to retailers.

Launching in November 2013, the PlayStation TV only sold 185,000 units domestically in Japan – most likely a contributing factor in its discontinuation.

Sony hasn’t commented on whether the product will suffer the same fate in the West, but it may be wise to go ahead and pick one up if you’re interested. If you do, check out our guide on the first things to do when unboxing the PlayStation TV.

    If you really think about it, this shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone. Makes me reflect on the Vita 1000’s “mystery port” and what could and should have been done with it.

  • Steve Jaworski

    Mine is still boxed. Don’t want to use it as taking the memory card out of the Vita to use in the PSTV will jumble my bubbles.

    No one messes with my bubbles but me. No one.

    • Reza Gerami

      Could be worth some moolah in a couple of years!

  • cannedpete

    I have one but never use it. The Vita is just so much prettier.

  • I’ve got mine plugged in but have never turned it on – I managed to get one for £30 so it was too good to pass up, but I’ve never felt compelled to use it.

    When God Eater and Gundam Vs land, that’ll probably change!

    • If you’ve got an extra memory card (even a 4GB) you should sign up for a Japanese account and try the God Eater demos on your PSTV. 😉

      • That’s a good tip, thanks! I was majorly into import gaming but haven’t had much time lately – can’t think of a better way to get back in!
