MMGN writes: The PlayStation 3 is far from the end of its run. You could argue that it hasn’t even begun its pre-sprint jog yet. Only now, some four-plus years after its release, are developers starting to really take advantage of the hardware. The console’s superb line-up of exclusives in 2011 is only further proof of this.
On the flip side, both the Xbox 360 and Wii look to be at the end of their runs. In this current retail climate, hardware sales do not normally determine whether or not we’re going to see new hardware. The PSP dominated the hardware sales charts in Japan recently, despite the release of the 3DS, and yet Sony is prepping for the release of its predecessor in late-2011.
