PS3 discontinued in New Zealand market

The New Zealand gaming market will no longer be supplied with PS3 units, once existing stock sells out, that is the end.

The PlayStation 3 was launched in New Zealand back in April 2007, lasting over six years before Sony released its next console.

Time indeed does fly, and now in October 2015, just a tick under two years since the next generation become current, the continuation of the last batch of Sony consoles is set to stop.

While inevitable, the timing of PS3’s discontinuation in New Zealand is sooner than many expect and is perhaps a sign of the growing success that Sony are having with their newer console in this territory.
