Would A PS4 Announcement Overshadow Future PS3 Games?

So let's say Sony does announce the PlayStation 4 on February 20. But doesn't that mean that a great many upcoming titles will get less attention now...? (Next-Gen, PS3)

Exactly, its not like someone will say "Oh the PS4 is coming soon? Well I'll skip The Last of Us and God of War: Ascension". Especially when they are releasing in the next few months and the PS4 at the very least is all the way at the end of the year

I think all those games you mentioned will be enhanced on the ps4 or something...

Ya and Sony did the same for god of war 2 and it was fine. I believe it actually came out after ps3s release and only on ps2. What do you want them to stop making games for a year before a new console. people will buy these great looking games.

Why would it overshadow? (Looks at title)

There is only good things that can come out of this announcement. Think about it. People get hyped, and interested in gaming again. They see the release date, and think to themselves "What am i supposed to do in the meantime?". Well, there is Last of Us, GOW Ascension and Beyond Two Souls. These games will keep gamers occupied until launch.

So no, it won't overshadow. It will have the opposite effect, shed more light on these games.

No, especially if its backwards compatible with an upscalling chip to make the ps3 games look even better. Maybe that will be there Trojan horse. and a price drop on the ps3 and vita will get sony on the road to victory , sony will do this right this time from the beginning to the end .

With 70 Million PS3 owners right now, I don't think the PS4 will have a dent on the new exclusives. My getting a PS4 doesn't undo the fact that I still own my PS3.

Well I suppose you could look at it like

"This is what we can do now"

Last of Us, God of War Ascension, Beyond

"Imagine what we could do with brand new tec next gen....games which could look better at what your already seeing now"

A game looking better then The Last of Us or Beyond, even if it's not that big of a jump...it makes you think

I don't think it would because those games will probably also be available at on the PS4.

And it's not like the PS4 is coming out tomorrow. I really hope it will drop this holiday season, but certain rumors* have me worried that's not going to happen.

(*a chip manufacturing delay from a couple of months ago. for a "next gen console.")

If the PS4 does release this holiday season then I'll be happy and broke. But just in case it slips into 2014, these games will obviously carry the PS3 through the next holiday season.

Sony is in a good position no matter what happens.

Those games are releasing before the PS4 so I doubt people will stop gaming just cause of an announcement.

Like it has been said a million times. Sony still supported the PS2 long after the PS3 was announced.So i don't see why they can't do the same now.They still need their revenue until the PS4 takes off and everyone is willing to buy it.Even if they announce it now and bring out in the fall it will probably not fly off the shelves until people are sure of where it stands or if it is a solid system.
SolidDuck  +   439d ago
Not at all, some of the best games always come out towards the end of a console generation. Well
I guess not always, but it has happened a lot. With ni no kuni, gow 3, last of us, beyond two souls, bioshock infinite, grand theft auto 5, and more all coming out this year. I'm super excited for the ps4, but damn the ps3 is going to go out with a bang.
HorrorGod  +   439d ago
What I want is for them to say "Oh yeah, at E3 last year, you were already introduced to next-gen titles -- Beyond, Watch_Dogs, Star Wars 1313, etc. BOOM.
snake-OO  +   439d ago
The PS3 never over shadowed God of War 2 , I think the same can be said about future PS3 titles.
black911  +   439d ago
Yes ofcourse. Hardcore gamers no but casual gamers yeah. They'll dump their PS3 in the trash.
TwistedMetal  +   439d ago
I will buy the awesome games and the ps4 to. I dont want to be in the situation x360 owners are in with no games lol.

Im playing ps3 exclusive ni no kuni as we speak and will get the last of us as well. I will pick up one piece muso as well. Im getting 2 souls and god of war as well. i guessim kind of lucky gta 5 got pushed back because there are so many games on the ps3 only right now so this give me some breathing room. What you x360 gamers gonna be playing untill the x720 comes out hmm?
