Is The PS3 Still Relevant In The Face Of The Impending Next Generation Console

With the PS4 set for release in time for Christmas 2013 and pre-orders for the £349 console already flooding in, playstation techzone is curious to listen to if people should be trading in and trading up their PS3s immediately or if they’re staying loyal to the older console for your time longer yet.

Gran Turismo 6

I think I've made my point.

PS3 will live longer thanks to GAIKAI cloud gaming.

AsimLeonheart1793d ago

The PS3 is THE best console to own at the moment and it will be for a long period of time until PS4 builds a healthy library of games. So, it is and will be relevant for a long period of time.

Was the PS1 still relevant several years after the PS2 was launched?
- YES!

Was the PS2 still relevant several years after the PS3 was launched?
- DAMN SURE YEAH!

And has the PSP died yet and left out with no support to make room for Vita?
- HELL NO!

So...it's just logical to think that the PS3 will still be relevant several years down the road as Sony is looking at those countries which are still rocking the PS2 as their main console. Brazil and many other asian countries for example are their next target for PS3 penetration and this time around for a profit with every console sold.

It's a dumb question to ask too considering how many 1st party games are coming this year and for several years to come who are we to stop EA from profitting on their dumbed down FIFA for the PS3 while releasing the best version on next gen consoles? They are still releasing FIFA 14 for PS2 and I'm certain that FIFA 25 will likely be their last PS3 game lol!

The PS3 has at least 2-3 more years of life. Not all PS3 gamers are ready to upgrade to the PS4. So not the end of the console and the GAIKAI purchase will insure PS3 games live on with the PS4 and beyond.

The ps3 is like DVD's, will be around for a while ps4 is like Blu ray..

No FanS Land1793d ago

I thought the article would bring that up, but yeah while it is still an excellent console, will publishers want to spend money on its architecture when the PS4 will be way easier to program for?

LiarasBoobs1793d ago

Destiny will also release on PS3 :)

Not yet. A man thinks LoU shows some relevance along with Puppeteer and Beyond 2 Souls. If Arkham Origins is any good according to reviewers then a man will have more games for PS3 this holiday than PS4 (Puppeteer, KH HD, GTA5, Arkham Origins, and Beyond as opposed to KZ, Knack, Watch Dogs' highly superior version, and BF4's highly superior version). Regardless until Gaikai shows that it's affordable and a man has personally tested it for BC a man will keep his PS3 and all the classics for it he goes back to play constantly including Ratchet (PS2 HD games and PS3 games), Jak HD collection, Sly HD and 4, GoW Saga and Ascension, Uncharted, Infamous, KZ trilogy, and Batman. A man can't go play these on PS4 so he will be keeping his PS3 until he experiences a seamless streaming experience on PS4.

What kind of retarded question is this??Sony is the only company still producing AAA titles unlike the other 2.

Destrania1793d ago

DragonKnight1793d ago

Is this a stupid question that doesn't need to be asked, or even answered?

XXXL1793d ago

Of course it is. Can't wait until black friday this year I'll be picking up another one.
