ps3 will wipe all the sales chart as soon as it hits the £100 mark... as for PS4 i just cant wait to get my hands on the beast :)

PS3 era is definitely not over yet! Tons of exclusives still to come!

PS4's "Strong Install Base", Great, now increase the Supply for Pre-Orders !!!

I doubt the PS3 will ever be that cheap, the controller alone is sold for around $50.

Conversion rates aside I see the PS3 bottoming out at around $150-$170 an that's years from now.

you see here in the UK ps3 RRP 12gb version is £145... so i can see it droping to £100 by end of this year.. better yet gamescom :)

I'm sticking with my Ps3 for a couple of years before I make a transition to the next gen. That will give time for a good large library of Ps4 games to build before I pick one up. Ps3 doesn't seem to be burning out at all for the time being, but flickering wildly with amazing exclusives.

It's really hard to keep up with all PS3 exclusive in this year alone.

I mean, on the 1st six month of 2013 PS3 users got Ni no Kuni, GoW Ascension, Atelier Ayesha, Guacamalee, Sly Cooper 4, and TloU (i knew i miss some tittles, feel free to add it). And after that, we got more exclusive such as Dragon's Crown, Tales of Xillia, Puppeteer, KH HD, FF X HD, Disgaea D2, Guided Fate Paradox, Rain, Jojo's Bizzare Adv All Star, and GT 6. All of this tittle totally rape my wallet. And we're still having AAA multiplats such as GTA V, AC 4, Watchdogs, Lords of Shadow 2, BF 4, Arkham Origins, and Killer is Dead.

What about next year? so far PS3 users also got exclusive like Tales of Symphonia HD, Tales of Xillia 2, and BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma. Also AAA multiplats MGS V, The Evil Within, and Dark Souls 2.

So i agree with you mate and will do the same too: sticking closely with my PS3 for one or two years before i made the jump to PS4.

All the games you mentioned can definitely keep a gamer satisfied for many months, while the developers get their feet wet with the new tech for next gen. Some of the next gen games are even multi-platform games. So there may not be much we're missing out on for those games, besides a visual upgrade.

Love my PS3, but I'm a no looking back kinda gamer. Once I get my hands on a PS4, my PS3 will collect dust. I just hope that Sony's continued support of the PS3 for several more years doesn't hold back development for the PS4.
