Sony to stop PSone LCD manufacture

Snap-on LCD monitor and speakers to make last shipment in August.

The official LCD monitor and speakers for Sony's PSone console, which made it possible to play the diminutive system without a TV attached, is set to be discontinued by the company later this summer.

Sony Computer Entertainment announced this week that it has halted production of the peripheral, which was originally released two years ago - coming somewhat late to market, as a number of third party peripheral vendors had already launched their own versions of the device when the official one arrived.

One last shipment of Sony's PSone & LCD Monitor bundle will be issued in Japan this August, according to reports. The bundle has waned in popularity recently, not least because it is now expensive compared to the more powerful current generation systems, priced as it is at 18,000 Yen (134 Euro).
