"PlayStation TV shipments were terminated at the end of 2015 in SCEA and SCEE," the spokesperson told us. "Shipment is still continuing in SCEAsia (as of the end of February, 2016), and we have nothing to announce regarding the timing of termination."
"PS Store for PlayStation TV will continue to be accessible, and PlayStation TV-related information will continue to be updated. In terms of applications/service for PlayStation TV, we will make further communications to users as necessary."
The device launched in Japan in November 2013, before coming to North America in October 2014 and Europe a month later. Sony did not provide an explanation as to why shipments were terminated.
PlayStation TV launched at $99, but retailers have since cut the price down significantly. You can now buy the system for under $50 at Amazon.
The microconsole can play many PlayStation Vita games in addition to digital PlayStation One and PSP games. Through Remote Play, PlayStation TV can be used to stream PlayStation 4 games from one PS4 console in your home onto a separate television that the PlayStation TV is connected to.
In addition, it supports PlayStation Now, allowing users to stream PlayStation 3 titles to the device.
GameSpot's PlayStation TV review explained that it "performs a lot of tasks, although it doesn't necessarily perform them well." Check out our full video review above.
