Sony: PS3 'Still Has A Long Life'

Adam Barnes: ''Sony could be looking to announce the PS4 very shortly, and though the company's CFO Masaru Kato wouldn't be drawn into discussing the next-gen he did admit there's still life in the PS3 yet.''

Of Course it does the ps2 was still being support up untilr ecently, the ps3 is a great machine and has done great things such as life not to mention the huge limbrary it has.

Weird statment from Sony I think the vast majority of people know how much sony looks after its systems.

Saviior951328d ago

PS2 is still supported,

Its getting its final release in March, thats like a 13 year life-span.

The PS3 will be here and people will develop for it for years to come.

Ezz20131328d ago

ps2 just ended few monthes ago

which was an amazing run over 11 years
ps3 will be doing the same thing as ps2

jony_dols1328d ago

The PS3 will continue to be supported by indie & JRPG dev's long after the PS4 is released.

Wonder how people would feel if Cars, TVs, Cellphones, Laptops, tech in general didnt progress for 6-7 years and their manufacturers kept boasting old tech lol.

Eyeco1328d ago (Edited 1328d ago )

So by your logic a new console should release every 6 months ?

Maybe you should look up what happened to gaming in 1977, because of that.

@decrypt We DON'T want to game on PC. Go away.

humbleopinion1328d ago

I think that the real question is when was the last game people actually cared about released. Mine was GOW2 which gives the PS2 an impressive 7 years run, but the PS3 will probably surpass that since it's entering the 7th years now and there are still plenty of games in the horizon (Not to mention the X360 which is already entering the 8th year and I still buy games for it).

Dude, the more you talk, the more of a loser you pc fanboys appear.. and I'm sure not all you pc gamers are like this, but gawd damn this guy is making yall look bad.

With games like the last of us and god of war coming out now and looking as great as they do, the statement in the title is true. Plus those games are available to a much broader audience instead of a small amount for next Gen.

piroh1328d ago

i bet the Last of us, GOW, Beyond and such wont´t be the last games for PS3

Ezz20131328d ago (Edited 1328d ago )

@piroh

yeah i agree
i don't think those are the last ps3 exclusives
not even close
ps3/ps4 will share alot of games for many years to come

GribbleGrunger1328d ago (Edited 1328d ago )

I agree. There will most likely be new games next year and perhaps a handful the following year, but just consider what PS+ has to offer Sony. PS+ is a fantastic way of offering content on a monthly bases to any late adapters and it's certainly a great way of making sure current owners hold onto the PS3. Who needs the second hand market when you have games on tap for £40 a year?

IAMERROR1328d ago

I hope atlus/Xseed/NISA continue to localize some great japan-only games. If Namco doesn't bring over Xillia 2 there will be blood!

CaptainSheep1328d ago

Yeah, Persona 4 came out on PS2 after the PS3 was released. I'm hoping Atlus release Persona 5 on the PS3, as well.

IAMERROR1328d ago (Edited 1328d ago )

That'll be really cool, you wanna know something funny? One of the main reasons I bought my Ps3 was KH3, but it never came :/ I'd be fine with a late PS3 release date but I doubt it'll happen. Persona 5 would be really awesome.

BrunoM1328d ago

Well I think we all knew it would be around past ps4 launch right ?

It's just the way Sony game part of buisness has always work ..

Well can't wait for fev20 tho don't believe specs will be given out but we will see the system controler and some in game (hopping)

GuyThatPlaysGames1328d ago

I agree. The ps3 has years of life left. I don't understand why everyone is making this push for next gen consoles. Think about it: What can be done on next gen that can't be done now? Visuals? Is that all? Just shiny graphics? I'd like to hear for once what game changing thing can be done to make this push.

peowpeow1327d ago (Edited 1327d ago )

I see performance, AI and physics being improved. Many games out now could benefit greatly, frame rate dips can get pretty unbearable.

Honestly I'm keen for a MUCH smoother overall experience in terms of the OS overlay in games and general OS speed etc which will definitely come.

But damn, I don't want to shell out cash just yet xD

broken_back-man1327d ago (Edited 1327d ago )

lots of visual uprages and ai upgrades and lots more characters per level imagine "the future"!!!! also gaikia will be great the can improve by 138.6 percent over the ps3!!! I did my math!!!!

cheatcode781327d ago

You do have a point. There isnt much to improve on other than processing power. An a extra couple hundred dollars from how much my ps3 costed dosent seem to be that much more worth it. I think that sony should allow a 250+ G-cycle discount for recycling your old ps3 when you come to buy the ps4. It'll give a huge thank you to sony's fans and sony could even obtain some type of financial benefit from this. No?

DA_SHREDDER1328d ago

well duh, im gonna get a ps4 and give my ps3 to my oldest who can game share with my youngest, and if one breaks, i will not give them a ps4 considering the ps3 will have a dramatic price cut.

MostJadedGamer1327d ago

I agree. I am going to ride out my PS3 as long as possible before moving onto the Next Gen.

Last Gen I sold my PS2 right before the 360 came out, and bought a 360 on launch night I was so eager to start a new gen.

Not only did I have suffer through a lot hardware problems(finally giving up, and selling my 2nd broken 360 in 2007), and massive game droughts, but I know I also missed out on PS2 games that I should have played.

I plan to do the excate opposite this gen. I will ride out my PS3 for as long as possible so I don't miss any games that I should have played which will also give time for the PS4/720 to buildup there game libraries so there will be more games to play when I finally do buy a Next Gen system

I think if they open up the system(allow android apps) and lower the license fees it can take over the lower end market(ouya,WiiU) for a couple more years.

BlackWolf1328d ago

Sounds about right. The PS3 still have breath in its lungs. With the upcoming games, like GoW Ascension and The Last of Us, the PS3 can still be purchased even after the PS4 comes around.
