RIP MiniDisc Walkman

We know what you’re thinking – they were still making those things?

It seems that Sony has had enough of dwindling sales figures and has sensibly announced the official death of their MiniDisc Walkman – remember those? Although you may be surprised that it’s taken this long to die, the players have sold a rather impressive 22 million units up to March this year.

Units will be available until all stock is depleted – but fear not, MD Walkman owners, the MiniDiscs themselves will continue to be churned out. Speaking of nostalgia, check out our list featuring other Walkman blasts from the past as we remind you just how depressingly old you’re becoming.
