10 years ago this month, Sony stole the show at E3 2006 for all the wrong reasons, the upcoming Final Fantasy XV was first announced, and the console transition claimed some victims.
I would rather buy a $500-600 console on launch then having to upgrade later (a la Xbox 1.5/Neo)
I paid that Iron Price, but so many people would've complained today about having to pay for a $600 console. It didn't matter if a high price in the beginning would've prevented a mid-life upgrade.
Yeah, that is sadly true.
I paid $975 for my PS3 back then and to this day I've never regretted it.
Funny how the PS3 is still being manufactured yet the Wii and 360 aren't LMAO. It's been almost 10 years come november.
Yeah, its called a ten year plan. Microsoft stopped theirs at ten and if Sony follows their original plan they'll do the same in it's tenth year.
They just had an update for PS3 and more games are in development still. This console will still be manufactured past 2017...
The plan is actually, Make the console as long as there is demand and it makes you money, not "10 years"...
Microsoft stopped at 7 years if you think about. There were very very little to no exclusives for it for it last 3 years.
Okay I was unaware their were games still being made for it. But when it launched that's what they advertised to death, so they could justify the expense. So if they are able to get a longer time out of it, we'll see. But i'm sure all three of you checked Gamestop to see that their are still games coming out for the 360 as well and with the ps4 selling so well and a new upgraded one coming out, time is not on its side.
