Microsoft joined the scene in November 2010, with its Kinect (previously announced under the working title "Project Natal" in June 2009).
Unlike the other two systems (Play Station 3 and Wii), Kinect does not use controllers of any sort and makes the users the "controller." Having sold 8 million units in its first 60 days on the market, Kinect has claimed the Guinness World Record of being the "fastest selling consumer electronics device".
Shortly afterwards, Sony announced in 2014 that they had discontinued the production of the Play Station Portable worldwide, following Nintendo's announcement earlier that year that it had discontinued its original line of the Nintendo DS family devices to move onto the Nintendo 3DS line.
Microsoft also announced in 2016 that they would discontinue the Xbox 360 at the end of April that year (though still supported), and Sony announced a year later that it would soon discontinue its Play Station 3 line in Japan.
It became the first handheld video game console to use an optical disc format, Universal Media Disc (UMD), as its primary storage media.
