Despite strong indications on its Japanese product page that it was discontinued in the country, Sony’s PlayStation TV is actually still shipping in Asia. However, a spokesperson for the company told GameSpot that the micro-console his no longer shipping in the United States and Europe. Shipments were stopped by 2015 end.

“PlayStation TV shipments were terminated at the end of 2015 in SCEA and SCEE. Shipment is still continuing in SCEAsia (as of the end of February, 2016), and we have nothing to announce regarding the timing of termination.”

PlayStation TV releases in November 2013 for Japan and saw a lukewarm response. Even after coming to North America and Europe in late 2014, it didn’t really improve with its sales. Sony didn’t confirm that this was the reason for shipments being cancelled however.

    Not surprised. The PS TV’s utter lack of marketing/public exposure, it’s incompatibility issues with a large percentage of PS Vita software, and it’s missing media feature killed the device’s commercial viability before it even left the gate.

    However, the idea of having a dirt cheap microconsole built to play dedicated handheld games is actually a pretty good idea. I could see Nintendo making a “PS TV” version of their next generation handheld, assuming that the handheld has an sub-HD/HD screen resolution and the proper controls. Nintendo could use this device to attract the casual mobile gamers (who made the Wii so successful), and in the process could introduce (or re-introduce) some of those consumers into dedicated portable gaming. My guess is Sony tried to do that with the PS TV, but the aforementioned issues I mentioned above killed the product before it ever launched.
