With PlayStation 4 on the not too distant horizon, the fate of Sony's third-generation console over the course of the next few years has become a major topic of discussion. Will the company drop it like a bad habit and throw 100% of its resources into making PS4 the best it can be?
According to Shuhei Yoshida of Sony Worldwide Studios, PlayStation 3 has some life left in it, but don't expect it to remain all that relevant five years down the line.
PS3 has been doing great - but it's not like everyone owns a PS3 already. There's always a group of consumers who come late in the cycle, people who wait for the price to come down. We're expanding geographically as well. The demand from Latin America, for example, is really really strong for PS3.This sounds about right, no? Sony has traditionally stuck to a ten year lifecycle for its gaming platforms, and it looks like PlayStation 3 will be able to age gracefully until that time has arrived.
Do all of you already own a PS3 at this point? Will you be selling yours off to help fund the purchase of a PS4? Sound off in the comments below and let us know.
