Put this on the "Doom and Gloom" section of the pie chart.

It's not like the PS3 would disappear straight after the PS4 is out, many would still be around playing online games. Heck, even the PS2 has online players still online on the few games they still have up.

Let me ask you this.

 

How long did Sony officially support the PS2?

Answer; 12 years.

 

So the PS3 will be supported at least that long, if not longer.

 

How old will the PS3 be at the time of the PS4 launch?

Answer; 7 years.

 

Now for some basic math.  12-7=5

 

So you will most likely be able to enjoy your PS3 for another 5 years at least.

 

You're welcome.

People can argue about the ten-year PS3 cycle all they want but as soon as the PS4 releases, the PS3's overall commercial value will go down. That's how it is in gaming. We want the latest in hardware and software. Like it or not, the PS3 has been obsolete since 2/21.

While you are correct to a point; this statement isn't true in reality. Most gamers don't transfer over to the next gen of consoles till about two years in. This is when the price drops have occured and the first revision of the machine is out not to mention when the games for the new system starts to blow away the last one. I say that if you have a PS3 it wont become obsolete till around 2015-2016.

First off, learn English please.

 

Second, if I even understand what you were saying, I'm not talking about new games continuing to be made for the PS3.  I'm addressing the OP's concern that all the games he has bought both disc and network based will no longer work.

 

Sony will likely support the PS3 as a functional device for as long as they did with the PS2.

 

Look at the PSP.  The PSP portion of the PS Store is still up and running, and that system was dead even before the Vita came out.

Aint our fault. Alot of us have had our system for 6 years now and think its a great time for an upgrade. Its your loss you waited so long to buy a ps3. You think there isn't tons and tons of older games that aren't good to play? You think that games won't get a ps3 version because of the ps4? The PS3 will become the lower end system and it will still cost less then the PS4 to make games. Developers know how to make games for the ps3, they been doing it for the past 6 years. The PS4 will cost alot more to develop for because its a new console. Eventually you will start seeing more people making only ps4 games but that's a few years ahead of us. I'm still buying PS1 and PS2 games to play.
