Good news for A mount
2

There is a special offer for an extended warranty (one year extra) offered for any camera purchased until end of January next year if you register your purchase online within 60 days from the purchase.
The offer is EU-wide (plus several more countries, minus Luxembourg). More details here:

(Change the domain to find your local site)

The good news? A mount is not excluded from the offer. These cameras are covered by the offer:
A6500
A7, A7ii, A7iii
A7R, A7Rii, A7Riii
A7S, A7Sii
A9
RX1, RX1R, RX1Rii
A77ii
A99ii

Notably missing are A6000, A6300 and A68, which might mean they're discontinued (although at least A6300 is still offered with a cashback).

All current lenses are covered, too. There are some old A mount and E mount lenses missing from the list (E mount 10-18 is not there, FE 28-70/3.5-5.6 or FE 85/1.8, as well as A mount 24-105, 16-105, 11-18, 50 macro or the old 50/1.4). However, a lot of old A mount lenses are still listed, such as 16 fisheye, 35/1.4 G and 135 STF, which came from Minolta, or 85 ZA which was an early release.

All in all, it seems like Sony is earnestly supporting A mount, even if not marketing it actively and aggressively like E mount.
