Shuhei Yoshida talks about the future of PS3 "I don't know if the PS3 will last another 5 years"
Simple: More great games. More great exclusives. Final PS3 title: Madden 2025
Lol, this might actually happen.
PS3 is going out with a bang. I'm kind of wanting to buy a PS3 just for all the RPG's and a few other games I can't play on my 360, but I'd rather put that money towards a PS4.
I'm predicting the PS3 will be around for 3 more years. By then, almost all of those resources will go into PS4 and Vita. One of the reasons being the cost to develop for the PS3 versus expected sales will top out by 2016/17. That's an understandable length, I mean how many games did the Wii get when the Wii U was on the market for just under a year?
Playstation consoles usually live for 2-3 more years after next-gen ones are released, by that I mean, it gets decent amount of exclusives and multiplats. So PS3 might still be going strong until 2015-16.
TomShoe; Hahahaha @ Madden 2025. Yep, thanks for the laugh.
I'm not going to lie...I had to look 'prognosticate' up.
Same. I felt like a bit of an idiot.
Well the PS3 is almost 7 years old so it's natural.
In other words, Sony is going to kill it off like Microsoft does their old consoles. Sony is desperately trying to be like Microsoft especially with their online fee to play on P2P servers now. At least Microsoft is getting dedicated servers for XBL so it's less of a ripoff.
X360 is long ago dead. PS3 is going totally strong, it might even compete with next-gen consoles if they shelve PS3-only exclusives.
At least you're openly trolling. It's still pathetic, but at least it's honest.
Sony had dedicated servers on the Ps3 for years so most likely the Ps4 will have dedicated servers too. There are games coming out for the ps3 well into 2015 so why would Sony kill it off?
I guess you are way to young to remember the PS2 where Sony supported that console for a really long time. That's all i can say for emo Dante fan. You probably didn't know where the original Dante came from.
Why is it accounts like these are allowed to remain active?
Ok you keep telling your self that...lol
Ps4 and Xbox One All Day
PS3 with PLUS and the PSN will last almost 5 years after the release of PS4. More of 1.000 titles available for new and huge markets like China, India and south America. The most important fact is that the Multiplayer at PS3 is Free.
It will largely depend on the independent developers and Indies but the complexity difference between the PS4 and PS3 may be the final nail in the coffin for the PS3. We will wait and see and it's not as if my PS3's will suddenly become orphans. It will run till it fails or find a place in a good home with people that cannot afford their own!
With exclusive and original ps3 games like beyond two souls and puppeteer, and the very reasonable day 1 retail price of some of theses games (puppeteer-$40 NEW ratchet & clank-$30!) I will have no problem preordering and supporting ps3 games in the future. Greatness Awaits.
