Five years ago today, Sony released the Playstation 3 in America. Despite having an extremely high price point to begin, the console boasted some impressive specifications, and has managed to shift over 50million units.
I highly doubt that we will see a PS4 next year anyone with half a brain would know this. Sony said themselves that the PS3 will have a 10 year lifespan
Yeah... no point trying to tell this lot that. People just wont listen ¬¬ I mean I know the PS4 is still years away, because I think Sony would want to concentrate on the PS Vita as the 2012 item. Maybe 2013 or 2014? I'd go 2014 more.
i'm guessing that PS4 will be announced...maybe...in 2012, but similar to how the PS3 was announced...almost 2 years from its release and almost nothing to actually show of it... Earliest possibility at a release date I would guess would be very late 2013, but sometime in 2014 seems more accurate... its probably more up to MS this time...its a safe bet that the next xbox will get an announcement next year, and Sony simply won't let them out the door first again (even if that was the original plan for the PS3 entirely)... I'm guessing Sony might be a little rushed by MS this time around, much more so than in previous generations...
the PS2 was 6 y/o when the PS3 came out.. but somehow it feels too soon for a new PS.. this gen came and went in the blink of an eye..
This is how I see it, MS and Sony announce next gen consoles in 2012, both next gen consoles release 2013. Next year is kinda too soon for either to be releasing a console imo.
just because theres a 10 year lifespan, doesnt mean they are going to wait 10 years for the next system to release guys. i think we saw this with the PS2, and its still going strong.
People just don't think about what they write any more. They have a stupid idea burned in their brain and just won't let it go. Sony doesn't have to wait until the PS3 is at the end of its ten year cycle to make a new system. The PS2 was still selling and getting games when the PS3 was revealed. @ Noticeably_FAT How do you figure? How do you know Sony isn't bringing out their console next year?
The 10 year cycle does NOT mean there won't be a PS4 before then. Its the length of time that developers (especially Sony) will develop for it.
Ten year lifespan doesnt mean they wont release another console....im not saying they will or wont but going by history sony has announced the newer console whilst continuing the support for the current. Pretty much what kleptic said above Edit and pretty much what everybody said above me
10 years. lol They would get murdered in sales if they waited that long.
My (educated?) guess is that MS and Sony will make the announcements next year but I doubt we'll see the release of anything other than the PSV and Wii U.
2 years is the sweet spot.
Why have I been hearing that this is the longest generation ever if PS3 only turned five, and the Wii too for that matter? The Xbox is six, but when the PS3 launched, the PS2 was six years old. I don't see how it's longer.
Nope, PS4 in 2013. Probably late in 2013, while Microsoft and Nintendo will release new consoles late 2012.
I think it will be released late 2013 or so...
I love that we as gamers are celebrating the birthdays of both the Xbox and PS3. They are both amazing machines that some of us would consider them family. Happy Birthday XBOX and PS3!!!
It seems way too early for ps3 to release anything. I still think that system has some legs. The wii and 360 on the other hand are in great need of an update. Especially the wii.
They push these consoles out of the door so quick it boggles my mind. its this push for better graphics instead a push for better games. this strips a consoles lifespan.
