Production of Sony's ill-fated PSX media centre halted

Is this the end of Sony's convergence experiment - or will PS3 follow the same path?

Sony Japan has stopped manufacturing both models of the PSX media centre cum game console, with the company revealing that production has stopped and giving no indication of whether it plans to resume at some point in future. The news was announced in a terse announcement on the official Japanese PSX homepage, ably translated by the scribes at German news site GameFront, and simply states that production of both current PSX models has been stopped.
