IGN - PS3 support through 2015, says Sony; perks nerfed in Black Ops 2; Wii U region-locked; and gameplay details for Capcom's Remember Me.
So if the xbox720, comes out next year. Were does that leave Sony. Out in the cold thats were
Support doesn't mean they won't have a new console announced or ready to go. It would be too early to say "we've a new console coming soon", PS3 sales would take a nose dive.
hes expecting that, since that's what happen to the first Xbox. (Microsoft) "DROP SUPPORT NOW!!!" EDIT: 3rd party's still supported the OG xbox, even after Microsoft stopped.
PS4 wont come out til late 2014.
PS2 was supported til 2010. Enough said
I think it will be a wrong and an extremely dumb decision if Sony allows MS to get a year head start all over again!? Isn't that one of the biggest reason why MS still dominates in the US? 6 months? OK, I get that but a year or two is just too much.
The PS2 was out before support for the PS1 stopped, same with the PS3, and PS2. The PS4 will be out before PS3 support stops.
Yup. i thought that would be clear to everyone else.
2015 actually seems kinda soon, considering they still support the PS2 6 years into the PS3 life.
Support implies software made for the system. Sony stopped that support about a year after the PS3 came out. They internally stopped making games for the platform. I am thinking this means a 2014 launch for ps4.
No console generations are going to start overlapping more, and more, and become more, and more blended together.
ps2 is still selling.
yea , why the hell they released the ps3 !!!!!!!!!!!! they are stupids !! that's what i see from the comments here about the ps4 ... -.- just because you ain't bored of the ps3 and it still sell doesn't mean others shouldn't get the ps4 even next year ... since they didn't release anything about xbox 3 and people expect it next year then i will do the same for the ps4 , sony won't go and do the same mistake like before ...
I didn't really expect anything else from Sony. They did the same thing with the PS2. Hopefully this means that Last Guardian will be released on the PS3 :D
So, Sony saying that they will support the PS3 until 2015 means no PS4? LOL wow! Please don't refer to yourself as a gamer anymore.
PS4 is coming as well. I expect launch between Fall 2013-Mid 2014, but that is just me. Microsoft will not be alone in announcing a next generation console. As for support its just an announced minimum support date for 1st party software. PS3 hardware and software support could last another 5 years after that. Depending on how well it keeps sales going over time.
Sony supported the PS2 for years after PS3 came out, they support PSP with PS Vita out. Sony is really the only gaming company that doesn't immediately stop supporting there old consoles when the new one is released... Sony might put out PS4 in 2013 more likely 2014, but they could still support the PS3 for years, just like PS2. Come to think of it PS2 is still listed in hardware sales when they put such numbers out..
We meet again coseplay guy
2015... Is it a good time to buy then?
Either way, up ti Sony. But they really need to understand the outcome if their choice
did you read the previous comments? i thought they were clear but maybe i'm the dumb one here :/
+bubble for a hilarious comment...
Remember Me looks great! And Naomi Kyle? Damn..she's def Applebees worthy =D
How does one come to be "Applebees worthy"? I'm intrigued...
Any woman thats cute in the face and has all her teeth is Applebees worthy!
Her & Jess Chobot are smokin.. Any hot chick that knows her tech makes her 10x better
Chobot got too skinny. I like this girl much better in terms of looks.
that remember me game looks like project 23 on gamecube. i mean the gameplay. think the game was spelled p.n.23
you cant blame sony if waiting to release a system is the case, they want to make up some loss before the next one
So they are going to drop support for the PS3 the way MS dropped support for Xbox.
You forget the ps2 was still selling well and games where still coming out. Unlike micro$oft which dropped for the Xbox faster than you can drop it down a 4 story building.
So what happen with 2012 than? I guess they decided to skip it.
Sony even released a statement saying when there is enough leap in technology they will release a console. They won't be too far behind micr0$0f7 though.
sony will support ps3 well after ps4 launches just like they did w/ ps2 -another reason why im a fan microsoft drops their machines like a hot potatoe
This is what happens when we let a RPG company "Square enix" take control/publish a game that is completely off their genre
No shocker here considering Sony's track record. About the vid, Naomi Kyle is cute no doubt, but her sarcasm is corny and unappealing I don't see why ign and gamespot try to add "attitude" to their reporters/reviewers. I'm not asking them to be bland but the wannabe smartass type personality is whack for gaming media. No other forms of media are like that as a whole, maybe they have a decent amount, but almost ALL of the gaming media is full of douches whether its g4(rip), gamespot, ign, gameinformer, or any other publication regarding gaming. Its unprofessional and distasteful. (I know ill get tons of dislikes but hey, just my opinion on it)
New console from Sony end 13 beginning 14 and next E3 will be all about hardware. Sounds cool.. i'll have time enough to play what i have.
CONFIRMED: PS4 (first model) will include backwards compatibility ps1,ps2 and PS3
I think Sony is becoming the next Sega in consoles.
The only difference is that Sega actually innovated and made good hardware and introduced new things which made us appreciate it (ex. The Sega Saturn D-Pad is delicious, Sega Channel is XBL Arcade before it, the Sega Saturn/Dreamcast introduced and made online gaming popular, the Sega Saturn 3D controller introduced the analog stick a couple weeks befoe the N64 came out, first controller to use triggers properly, the VMU is similar to the Wii U to an extent, etc)
Seriously Jessica, time to get a real job, or at least one that doesn't exploit your gender just because you're supposedly a gamer.
