I would say in time for their FY2013 report, so they can include the final numbers in there. PSP might be discontinued, as well. They will most likely pump out a larger than normal final shipment, so I can see it ending ~160M-165M shipped, which will end up being sold within a year or two. My guess is they are going to start pushing the PS3 in those markets, since with next year's price cut, it will be deemed cheap enough. This is another reason I think the PS3 will only be ~10%-15% down next year.

Oh, and HAIL TO THE KING, BABY!!



....Japan buying up PSP games like hot cakes. Doubt it will be going anytime soon. I think PS2 will be announced at their next investor meeting.

I agree with the OP in that the PS2 will probably cease to ship during the begining of 2014. As for what the final numbers will be, I think it's likely that PS2 will end up around 160-165M.

Soon with the production stopping in japan and the rest will soon follow im guessing sometime in 2013 all stock will all be sold.

I expect this year. They'll probably really start pushing PS3 to replace PS2 in those emerging markets. They can't have support 3 home consoles.....



I'm guessing the announcement of PS2 producting stopping will coincide with a PS4 announcement.

But they won't be supporting 3 home consoles really, since PS2 sells mostly in areas where PS3 has only recently become a major player and where PS4 won't be a big player for a while. I think this year would be cutting its legs too short. 3m this fiscal year, so they can do 1-2m for this one. It's the perfect plan!



5-10 years when it becomes saturated in developing markets.

:O Now that's a believer, people! That would be pretty amazing, but unfortunately I do think Sony will discontinue it if it gets to 1m or less per year, even though it might be selling pretty well in developing markets.
