After awhile, video game only retailers and internet retailers will be the best places to continue buying PS3 / 360 games.

 

 

Many people will still continue to buy / play games on their PS3 / 360, even after picking up a PS4 / Xbox One. Including myself.

There are still plenty of games I've yet to play Smiley Happy Then there will be those people who don't adopt to the next gen right away and will continue to play on their PS3 / 360 for the next few years. They won't be obsolete right away.


well as it stands right now the last ps3 games im buying is gtav, beyond two souls, saints row 4 and the ps3 versions of final fantasy x and x-2

after that its all ps4 games unless the game is only coming out on the ps3

That is just new releases. You don't have any older PS3 titles in your mental backlog that you still want to play?

I have a long list of PS3 games I still want to buy / play. Hell, even have a short list of PS1 and PS2 titles I never got around to playing back then.

 

That is what I love about these generation changes. It gives time for me to get a little more caught up on some older games, because the new console won't exactly be blasting out many games right off the bat / so frequently.

Look how long PS2 lasted. The PS3 still has alot of games coming well into 2014. Dont expect the system to be discontinued anytime soon.

You wont see as many AAA titles on the PS3, but there are always blinks of greatness when a console is succeded.

agree. prolly see the sports games for a few years+ and maybe even games like call of duty a year or two after ghosts but dont expect big time games like the last of us. if the ps3 does get exclusive games the ps4 doesnt get, i think itd be just silly. thats all.

They probably are going to release some ps3 games for the next year but, don't expect to much after that.  I bet by the end of 2014 there won't be any ps3 or xbox 360 games in development.

A lot after November when the XBOX One is released.

 

People may buy that mistaking it for a VCR.

 

Before some XBOX fanboy runs in here too.. I'm aware the PS4 is no oil painting either.

This pained me. I'm going to have internal hemorrhaging if I keep reading the stuff here.
