The PS3 is a 42 year console designed to evolve every 6 months till it grows arms and legs and goes to college where it majors in business law.

PS3 4 life!!!!

That's good to know. Otherwise the 360 would only have about three years left.

I might just go ahead and skip this round of Microsoft products and wait for the 720 anyway.

i truly agree with u but i think its shorter like 2 to 3 yrs

I buy the console I want on "day one", so I get all 5 years out of it. After 5 years I'm ready for the new technology and power of the next console. (maybe quad-core with 3 gigs of ram and a 500gb HD)*fingers crossed* :-)

A console who's life span is more than 5 years but only guaranteed to work for at least 3. Classic! Long live the 30% defective rate. j/k

360 lasting 5 years sh*t that would be a collectors piece

360 owners will then have nothing to worry about, but it would have been better if MS included the HD-DVD inside the console.

so it's 6 yrs, can't compare to 10 like all of sonys consoles

Believe me, no one wants to be playing a 10 year old console. They just can't afford the new one.
