In Japan, Sony is ceasing aftercare service for the launch PlayStation 3 consoles: the 60GB CECH-A00 model, the 40GB CECH-B00 model, and the 40GB CECH-H00 series models. Also, Sony Japan won't be offering aftercare for PlayStation 1, the PlayStation 2 model SCPH-50000MB, and the 1000 and 2000 series for the PSP.
