Sony: First and Third-Party Support for PS3 Will Continue as Long as There’s an Audience

Just like the PlayStation 2 and the original PlayStation before it, Sony intends to support PlayStation 3 well into this new console generation. Sure, PS4 may be the new hotness, but as long as there's an audience hungry for content on PS3, Sony intends to deliver.

"People are still buying PS3s. All the different parts of the world just adopt new technology at different rates," Sony's Scott Rohde told GamesIndustry in a recent interview. "We don't know how long the PS3 tail will last. We don't know how it will be compared to the PS2.

"The PS2 lasted very deep into the PS3 cycle. There was a broad price difference between PS3 launch and PS2 end of life," he added. "We don't know where all this is going to go, but we will continue to support the PS3 through first- and third-parties as long as there is a good business there for us."

Are you still invested in you PlayStation 3 or have you made the complete transition to PS4? I for one refuse to retire my PS3 until after I have sunk many, many hours into Persona 5.
