GameZone writes, "Sony has maintained that the PlayStation 3 will have a 10-year lifecycle -- at least. Like the PS2 before it, which continues to sell actually, the PS3 will not be forgotten about with the launch of the PlayStation 4."
Did they abandon the PS1 when the PS2 arrived or the PS2 when the PS3 arrived??NO,Come on this Sony we're talking about they're all about supporting thier machines.
yup. Sony can clain this, they support their "last gen machines"! something that Microsoft never did... shame on ya Bill...
One of the reasons why I am also getting PS4. If you've seen X1 exclusives like Ryse and DR3 were supposed to be on X360 not X1 but MS made desicion for these games to be on X1 instead of which they were supposed to be on X360. If Sony did same as MS did about this, we would've seen games for examples like TLOU, GoW Ascension, GT6, R&C Nexus and Beyond Two Souls on PS4 instead of PS3. Which is great for me to become PS4 owner.
Great point you bring out, very much the truth
They may not forget it, but I will....
Well ... they abandoned the PSP. As for the PS3, I don't see any PS3 exclusive made by Sony, announced for 2014, worth mentioning.
If we aren't including all the 3rd party exclusives on PS3 (Which is a boat load)... Retail PS3 exclusives published by Sony in 2013: Sly 4 (Not 1st party) Gow Ascension The Last Of Us Puppeteer Beyond Two Souls (Not 1st party) Gran Turismo 6 Until Dawn Ratchet & Clank Into The Nexus (Not 1st party) Retail 360 exclusives published by MS in 2013: Gears Of War Judgement (Not 1st party) Retail 360 exclusives published by MS in 2014: Fable HD (Delayed, supposed to be 2013) lol... Compared to the competition, I think they're good.
I'm not talking about the competition and I said 2014 !!!! LOL. So many disagrees!!! Fanboys are Pathetic. Someone tell me one or two games announced for 2014, made by Sony for the PS3, worth mentioning?
So the only games that count are the ones that YOU say count? That sounds typical.
@Hicken Are you drunk ? What the hell are you talking about ? Sony said that the PS3 will not be forgotten, then I implied that Sony has NO (nothing, nada) exclusives made by Sony to release in 2014 for the PS3! So please inform me. What games is Sony making for the PS3 to release in 2014? If they have any, they haven't announced them.
Yeah, they would be stupid to abandon it. See how long they supported the PS2 and how much it still sold after all these years? Smart move, Sony!
Nice to know! My PS3 and PS4 are gonna look so sexy next to each other.
Obviously gta 5 and dark souls 2 are on it!
Sony you seriously need to help Square-Enix with FFXV. And my backlog for PS3 is huge. thank god it wont be forgotten.
My backlog is huge too, plus there are still games coming out that I need to get like Beyond. I'll be playing PS3 long after I have my PS4.
That would be pretty damn cool. Maybe they are helping. Nomura is having a Conversation with creators interview with Nomura about the game so maybe they are. I just dunno when it is. Do you? If so could you tell me? On topic again, Sony is getting a lot of exclusives for the PS3. Tales of Xillia, Ratchet and Clank into The Nexus, KH 1.5 HD Remix, Tales of Symphonia Chronicles, Tales of Xillia 2... hot damn.
The convo with creators is suppose to be at TGS. Which is happening tonight at 9:30EST. Could be today or in the next few days. Im sure we will see it. But hot damn. Nomura said FFXV would be at every major gaming event from now on. In comes TGS 2013 and NOPE! Lame...But you are right so many exclusives! Cant wait for Ps4!
There are still games to be played. And I wouldn't mind seeing that 500 GB at 150 dollars at one point!
Good to hear even though I pretty much knew that already. Especially after Microsoft just put an expiration date on the Xbox 360, they support it for three more years according to strategy officer Yusuf Mehdi.
Don't expect to see anymore aaa exclusives on the 360 anymore Gears was probably the last one, knowing Microsoft, in with the new out with the old
Keeping my PS3 for a year more before i get my PS4, will extend if it still delivers good games.
Of course Sony isnt going to stop supportin the PS3, just look at the PS2! The last game to come on it is Fifa 14 (!)
As soon as the player base reaches a certain amount they will abandon the PS3. (which will be some time from now!) In Japan they were still making psp and ps2 games well after ps3 and vita were out. <Give this a good two years!>
Two? Isn't the last PS2 game Fifa 14? It's certainly going to be more than two years.
They want everyone to move over to NEXT gen. I doubt gamers who own the ps3 will be content playing JUST ps3 when next gen is floating in their face day after day. In fact, I believe most people are going to pick it up. Now in two years PS3 will be a great cheap deal for people who do not have much cash. Plenty of fun to be had in the bargin bin and so many deals on the psn store.
You're ignoring Sony's past for this reasoning. Sony supports their consoles far longer than any other console producer. Yes, they want people to move over to next gen. They also know that there are pockets of society that never made it into the current gen. They will continue to facilitate games being made for the PS3 be it 1st, 2nd, or 3rd party.
That's nice I guess, but I'd prefer to see it forgotten as soon as possible. That'd help move past the awkward period where cross-platform games are designed to run on <512meg of ram. Call of duty: ghosts syndrome if you will. Dents my confidence in the likes of destiny when I hear about the 360/ps3 versions...
If they were going to abandon the PS3, they would have held TLOU for for the PS4.
Sony keeps spoiling their customers with rich gaming and that's why they'l always be on top
Sony is known to support its older systems unlike microsoft who just ignore it completely won't be surprised if the xbone stops getting much exclusives in 2 yrs time.
Which is why I'll be buying the PS4 & PS5. Oh! And believe they will have sold 100,000,000 PS3's (at least) before they even consider pulling the plug.
That's obvious right? My PS3 catalogue for next year still huge. Tales of Xillia 2, Tales of Symphonia HD, Dark Souls 2, BlazBlue Chrono Phantasma, Guilty Gear Xrd, The Witch and Hundred Knight, Jojo Bizzare Adventure All Star (eng ver), Evil Within, Lords of Shadow 2, etc. And only God knows if SEGA will localize Yakuza 5 + Yakuza Ishin, Namco will localize more Tales, or Atlus will release Persona 5 for PS3.
i think the ps3 can go longer than the ps2 did if you really think about it. the people who couldnt afford a ps3 or maybe was holding out for a reason i hav no idea they will still have a very awesome system to play tons of great games to buy which will be alot cheaper still get free online play and im sure sony will have developers making games for the ps3 for a long time. 2020 and the ps3 might still be around on shelves at $149 with a move bundle and 3 free games a year of playstation plus.
I still played PS2 up until late 2009 when I bought my PS3!
PS3 is an Instant CLASSIC!!!
nope, it was almost an instant failure,no games,silly price tag etc... short memory? Glad they turned things around though.
So you define the term "classic" with the 1st year of ps3 life cycle? What about the 7 plus years (and still going)? I wouldn't say "instant failure" but maybe "slow start" when you talk about ps3 in 2006 to 2007. SO "YEAP, PS3 is indeed an instant classic."
really? this is sad!!! I want their studios to focus on next gen. so far i skip TLOU I will get it if i find it $30 or cheaper and I will get Beyond at a full price but after that I'm done with this old tech. I will only use my PS3 to play PES14 is the only reason I'm keeping my PS3 and maybe the free ps plus games will make me use my ps3 besides PES14 and netflix.
Thats one of the reasons I always get a playstaion , I know it will be supported throughout the ENTIRE gen, not just the first few years (ahem 360 core exclusives) and for years after.
