In a recent article in gamespot.com (http://www.gamespot.com/news/2005/07/22/news_6129611.html) Ken Kutagari the father of playstation want the playstation 3 to have a 10 year life cycle. Now traditionaly a new game console comes out every six years but Ken Kutagari want to change that by having the ps3 in the family home for 10 years.

"Kutaragi started out by reconfirming that the PS3 will be backwards-compatible with PlayStation and PlayStation 2 games and support high-definition TVs. "We're looking at a life cycle of 10 years with the PlayStation 3. We're currently shifting from standard TVs to HD TVs," said Kutaragi. "But in the next couple of years, most flat-panel TVs will be full HD. We're releasing the PS3 with full HD features from the start so that consumers won't have to buy another version of the console in the future. For the same reason, we're using Blu-ray as the PS3's disc format."

 Now in this quote he also mentions that consumers won't buy a new version of the console in the future what can this mean? no PS4? I guess only time will tell since the playstation 3 is such a powerful console and with all of this new technology that the playstation 3 has in stored I wonder how microsoft, and nintendo will have up their sleeves since ps3 is set for a 10 year life span.

Beleive it or not, the Ps1 had a 10 year life cyle (according to sony)

There term for life cylce seems to be whenever publishers will support it or not. Sony actually still release its 989 sports games on the PS1.

So what he said can be a little deceiving...

Ken Kutaragi has made a smart move by keeping the PS3 in the home for 10 years.

I know that ps2 games will still come out after the playstation 3 comes out but like i said earlier I meant the production of the console itself will end once the new console comes out

If what he means is that the successor to the,PS3 will be released after 10 years, I fully support Sony. Consoles are,becoming too close to real-life and we can use all the time in the,world untill we reach the top of everything, even virtual reality. But,he is most likely saying that the console will be supported for 10,years.
