No, Sony isn't killing the lovable fluffy robot from Disney's Big Hero 6. It's killing off the the Betamax format. Despite losing the format wars to VHS, Sony still produced components for the ancient standard. The move will take effect in March 2016. The fact that Beta cassettes will no longer be produced isn't the shock here, it's the fact that Sony still bothered making them. It will join the graveyard ranks of Zip Drives and HD DVD's soon enough. I'll make sure to pay my respects when the time comes.
