As The PS4 Looms, Sony Is Still Pushing PS3 Hard

As the photo indicates, snapped from this month’s Edge magazine but almost certainly appearing across multiple outlets, Sony are still happy to really push the PS3, at least through until the all important Christmas period.

Why not when they can then used those new PS3 games to push PS+ and any online plans they have.

abzdine2548d ago (Edited 2548d ago )

Sony never let the owners of the old system down. Tons of exclusives still to come on PS3 and PS3 owners shouldn't feel abandonned just because a new system has come out.

Imagine with me: PS2 launched in 2000 and it's still getting FIFA14 this year!!!

@ gunsmoke
Well how many exculsives did ps3 have this year alone compare to the 360?
And there's still beyond two souls😝

Oops forgot about gt6

Godmars2902548d ago (Edited 2548d ago )

Its still - likely - going to be an example of Sony using subtle manipulation to get people online and reward them for it, for a fee of course, versus MS forcing things while having their hand out as if you owe them money.

@noctis_lumia:
What's the point of pointing out exclusive PS3 content when the exact same thing happens on the 360?

noctis_lumia2548d ago (Edited 2548d ago )

Gunsmoke

@Gunsmoke: Sony has a history of continuing support for its current generation consoles well after the next one releases. By way of a for instance, God of War 2 launched on the PS2 four months after the launch of the PlayStation 3.

As for this gen, the games coming this year speak for themselves. Even with the launch of the PS4 looming in the background, we're still seeing games like The Last of Us, Beyond: Two Souls, a new Gran Turismo, and a new Ratchet and Clank game as well.

The only one talking out of their butt here is you. Sony isn't Microsoft; they don't just cut off their older consoles just because the new hotness is available. Speaking of the 360, does it happen to have any good exclusives coming out this year (or ever again)? I haven't heard anything.

Gunsmoke2548d ago (Edited 2548d ago )

Bahahahahahaah!

That list is pathetic. Is that the "tons" of exclusives you speak of?

And not only that, you are touting exclusive content! They very thing that MS has got scoffed at! And two of them are remakes! Unbelievable!

So I will request again. Could someone post a list of these "tons" of exclusives. I will wait and I will laugh, again.

And some of you think MS will stop releasing 360 games when the One comes out. Ok, who wants to take a bet? And im serious. If MS stops supporting the 360 when the One comes out I will pay whoever wagers a $1000. If they keep supporting it, you owe me the same. Come on kids, put your money where your mouth is.

*edit* still waiting on all you tough guys bets

Godmars2902548d ago (Edited 2548d ago )

@Gunsmoke:
Can you list a "ton" of 360 exclusives which will show MS is committed to support the console?

noctis_lumia didn't do his argument any favors by including "exclusive" content, but what have you done beside want a literal representation for "ton".

neoMAXMLC2548d ago

What's the point of naming exclusive games when your biased opinion is just going to write them all off?

Where's your list, Gunsmoke?

Serg2548d ago

There was a new PS3 exclusive game announced that we haven't heard of before... literally 2 days ago.

Some people just live up their backside I guess.

Microsoft has had 2 consoles out and they dropped the first one like a rock, without looking back. Their second system is still going, because their 3rd one has not been released yet. But with the amount of exclusive games that came out for the 360 in the last 3 years, or lack there of, I would not be surprised if they wipe out any evidence of the 360 off of their official websites, as soon as XBox One releases.

zippycup2548d ago

*serg* Microsoft has had 2 consoles out and they dropped the first one like a rock, without looking back

well the thing does weigh a ton

hkgamer2548d ago

ok calm down fanboys.

Gunsmoke never mentioned about MS supporting 360, he just wanted others to list out "tons" of PS3 content.

We all know current gen is dying. Don't care if Fifa 14 is still being released for PS2. i mean which gamer still buys PS2? PS3 has a year or 2 left. If you are a gamer and do not have a next gen console or good enough PC by that time then amybe you are not a big enough gamer as you claim.

I mean i still haven't had a chance/time to play LastoofUs yet, but If they made Last of Us, Beyond and GT6 a PS4 exclusive then they probably would have made the console even more attractive.

I'm sure some 360 gamers would have been attracted to the PS4 if it had more first party support.

Utalkin2me2548d ago (Edited 2548d ago )

@Gunsmoke

Someone has hurt feelings cause their system of choice will only release 1 exclusive in a year. Thats truly sad if you ask me. Just goes to show how MS tends to operate, but people will defend them to the end of the earth.

@hkgamer

My son still plays and buys games for the PS2. Obviously being it is still supported means there is a demand for it.

Gunsmoke2548d ago

So, no one could post a list of the "tons" of exclusives apart from that one guy that made me laugh.

Ok so its settled then, the PS3 doesn't have a lot of exclusives still to come. Its a myth among Sony fanboys.

Also no-one has taken me up on my bet either. So I guess you Sony fans really dont believe the crap you post.

You guys are very amusing.

-EvoAnubis-2548d ago

@hkgamer: Look at Gunsmoke's comment history. You really think there's any actual point in trying to have an intelligent conversation with this person? I don't see one, so I'm just having fun.

sourav932548d ago (Edited 2548d ago )

@Gunsmoke, you keep on mentioning "ton"...you do realise a ton is a unit for weight? And noctis_lumia mentioned 9 exclusives for this year, metaphorically speaking, for a console on it's 7th year with it's next iteration coming in the horizon, 9 exclusives can be counted as a "ton". So there you have it. What are you gonna say to that? Oh wait...looks like you're out of bubbles.

HonestDragon2548d ago

@Gunsmoke: I doubt abzdine meant "tons" in the literal sense of the definition. Besides, like Godmars said, can YOU list tons of exclusives that the Xbox 360 has for this year? Oh, and the exclusive games look bleak? Tell me, what kind of taste in games do you have?

Because games like Rain, Puppeteer, Beyond: Two Souls, Tales of Xillia, and The Last of Us have more personality and creativity than Forza Motorsport or Kinect Sports Rivals. You laughing off the list provided by noctis is laughable. This is especially considering that your request for another list of PS3 exclusives will only result in you laughing at it again. Be careful, your Xbox fanboyism is showing.

But just to humor you, here's the list for PS3 and PS4 exclusives from this year and in the future:

PS3 - Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk, Beyond: Two Souls, Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness, Dragon’s Crown, Dust 514, God of War: Ascension, Gran Turismo 6, Guacamelee!, Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory, MLB 13: The Show, Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, Puppeteer, Rain, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, Tales of Xillia, The Guided Fate Paradox, The Last of Us, The Witch and the Hundred Knights, Time and Eternity, and Until Dawn. (20 games)

PS4 - Basement Crawl, Deep Down, Driveclub, Galak-Z: The Dimensional, Infamous: Second Son, Killzone: Shadow Fall, Knack, The Order: 1886, Rocketbirds 2: Evolution, and Super Stardust HD. (10 games listed so far)

There's your list that you'll most likely laugh at with probably no clue as to what half of these games are. By the way, no one is going to bet one thousand dollars with a complete stranger over the internet. Stop being a child.

@Gunsmoke:
"Could you post me a link to the release schedule?"

No but i can recommand you to use these:

Sony knows not everyone is early adapters to the next gen.
PS3 will be going strong till 2016-2017 at least

_FantasmA_2548d ago

Gunsmoke

The diffrence between M$ and Sony's exclusive content is that Sony's content is actually exclusive. Look up the word. All M$ does is pay to get it earlier, but what good is that when a month later Sony gets it too. Bioshock Infinite includes the original Bioshock, Stranglehold included Hard Boiled, Assassin's Creed Revelatins included AC1, Watchdogs has an extra hour of content, etc. And all these things are permanent exclusives that Sony gamers get at no extra cost. You have no rebuttal for this.

PS3 still has a ton of exclusives coming out. Can't send those games out to die.

Corpser2548d ago

I can't believe they still cost $250-300

Cmk01212548d ago

Big xbox guy but sony is fantastic with supporting last gen consoles whilst launching next gen consoles, and supporting them for years after. kudos to them.

iceman062548d ago

That's big of you to admit...seriously...thanks for a rare spot of maturity in these days of the console bridge.

Roper3162548d ago

I just don't see the support lasting as long as the PS2 just because everything take so much more work & time for the developers.

WickedLester2548d ago

No question that eventually it will be 3rd parties doing the "heavy lifting" for game support as Sony's in house developers will be moving on to PS4 development. However beyond this year Sony will still continue to support their 10 year plan with PS3 in terms of system and accessory availability along with back catalog availability.
