    Sony to discontinue manufacturing optical disc drives

    Sony will discontinue manufacturing optical disc drives for personal computers in November amid fierce competition that has forced prices lower. Operations at Sony Optiarc Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary for the optical disc business based in Atsugi, Kanagawa Prefecture, will be halted at the end of March and the unit will eventually be liquidated.
