not to pee in some of u wind but it took 13 years for the ps2 to die, unlike xbox who abandon consoles.. u should be happy with sonys support

Didn't take that long for pspgo And it looks like vita may have one foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel if they don't do something about it.

You don't need Sony to drop its support for PS3 in order to deem it dead. Don't buy the console or sell it if you already have one, don't buy the games, don't read the news regarding PS3. There you go, it's unoficially dead for you.

As for me, I'll keep enjoying my PS3, and will be looking forward to Ni No Kuni, Yakuza 5, Dust 514, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, GOW Ascension, Beyond, Last of Us and maybe The Last Guardian and FF Versus XIII. Multiplatform games like Bioshock Infinite, Crysis 3, Tomb Raider, Watch Dogs, Remember Me, Rainbow 6: The Patriots, Splinter Cell Blacklist, Castlevania: Lords of Shadows 2, Lost Planet 3, Grid 2, Injustice, Aliens: Colonial Marines, Dragon Age 3, Metro Last Light, FUSE, Dead Space 3 and huge titles like MGS Ground Zeroes, Dark Souls 2 and GTA V will be the icing on the cake.

If those games are not enough for you to keep going with your Playstation 3 then wow mate... I'd really hate to have your taste of video games. There're a MEGATON of games to keep you interested for at least one more year. And yeah, there'll possibly be a new Call of Duty and Battlefield 4 on the horizon as well, just wait and see.

I don't think the ps3 should die yet and it won't as Sony has said 10yrs, now with helping the vita I think that getting the people who are still making psp games in Japan should have jumped to the vita already. Another thing that could help would be releasing those games on retail for vita and not just on the PSN for vita as I don't buy digital games, I like physical copies. Also the games list in the article are for the 1st quarter, what about the other months? They is a pretty big list of TBA games.

Yeah let a 70+ mil console sold console die.../s

whoever wrote this must be on drugs, the PS3 will be around longer than the PS2 was. it's not even at $199 price point yet.

Yeah, the let this system die articles are usually a bunch of nonsense that comes from idiots. You always want this game or that system to die.I am sorry but are you the person running the business? Are you the person who has been running a multi-billion company for several decades? Is it your money they are spending? Despite all your advise most of it comes from people who nothing about business. Your advice would probably more likely push the company over the edge rather then help them.So before you tell anyone to stop making a console or what they should start doing,STOP and remember that they know better then you.Letting the PS3 die is an idiotic idea.Sony can support the PS3 without having to kill it off. We all know that people won't jump to buy the PS4 at once and they need their profits coming from somewhere.There is something called barrier to exit where you can't simply just leave something after investing in or you may end up paying a hefty price
Belking  +   1123d ago
I don't think they can afford to let it die. It's really not totally up to Sony though. If third party still wants to support it they will. If they won't they won't.At some point they will have to shift more resources towards PS4 or they will risk losing more market share to Nintendo and MS.

PS3 easily has 4 to 6 years left to complete its life cycle.
swice  +   1123d ago
I would like to think that my investment was worth it. Letting a console die as soon as the next system comes out makes it less worthy. Also, some people stay behind a gen to save money, so cutting them out may not be the best business decision, unless of course said console failed to make the company money. I could see them dropping support then

Ps2 sold more than 20 million consoles from 2006-2012, why should the ps3 die when Ps4 comes out people will still buy ps3's when ps4 is out

I think its time to stop these stupid articles.

PS2 has just made room for PS4.
No need for PS3 to make room for PS5 just yet.
Give it another 7 or so years.

Even when the next Playstation is released, the PS3 won't die. It is going to have the same life cycle as the PS2 did.
nosferatuzodd  +   1123d ago
Xbox is out 1 yr earlier than ps3 why not let it die oh.
This journalist or learnalist need to write something substantial

The main reason is because two or three years ago we started getting games that were as good as they'll ever be on it. Yeah there's some fairly decent games coming out this year but none that look any better or have much better experiences than games that came out a few years ago. It's about time Sony released something that can give us a new experience.
deafdani  +   1123d ago
Sure, let the PS3 die NOW, just when it's finally making actual profit per console sold for Sony after several years of selling at a loss.

Basically, this article says that the PS3 needs to go so the Vita can do better. That's a inanely stupid argument. Yes, I agree with the point that the Vita needs more content unique to it, games that can't be had anywhere else, to make it more appealing to the consumer. But that shouldn't come at the expense of another console that also has so much to offer.

Under that logic, the 3DS should be selling like crap because Nintendo has the Wii AND the recently released Wii U... but guess what? 3DS is selling like hotcakes, and a big part of it is because of its game library, which offers a lot of stuff that just can't be had anywhere else. Vita needs more of that variety and uniqueness, not the death of its older sibling. >__>

There really are some stupid articles on the internet now days. This is one of them.

Not until I play The Last of Us.

Only then it can die gracefully.

Sony tried to charge me $150 for a refurb, and '360 Pro's' fixed "my" Playstation 3 for $100.

need I say more?

I sure hope Sony gets their house in order. I'll still play Sony systems. They'll have to do more than have a few exclusives to earn any more of my dollars.

Vita fans got screwed too. Nintendo will have its 3ds XL out next year.
DarkBlood  +   1123d ago
but the XL is already out?
Orionsangel  +   1123d ago
The only way the PS3 can remain relevant after PS4 is if you can't migrate your PSN content to the PS4. Then there's a legitimate reason to still own the PS3, but I doubt you won't be able to migrate your PS3 content to the PS4. On another note. I'm sure once Sony abandons the PS3. Hackers are gonna have a field day with it.

Playstation 3 is the only console this gen that WILL continue to co-exist with it's newer counter part!

Something the competition WON'T be doing!

Also PS3 is the ONLY current gen console with big enough legs to keep fresh/good looking exclusives coming to it this late in its life!
