Sony will keep supporting the PS3. That is what they do. They don't give up on their consoles like the others do.

Once a new system is released, they start right away with ideas and development for the next system. They started the PS3 development right after PS2 was released. I think the same thing was for the PS3/PS4. Its takes many years of planing and ideas for these systems to happen.

...on the one-year anniversary of the PS4. If Sony is really about being a leader in gaming advancement, it should focus only on its newest system. Forget about the ten year lifespan. Gaming is all about technology evolving.


thats why theres not people like you running a company because it would be sure to FAIL...

I think Sony has been really good about continuing the older consoles with the new ones are released. PS respects their older consoles in a way Microsoft and Nintendo does not.

I expect a good three or four years left in the PS3. Not a one year drop like with the Gamecube and Original Xbox after the Wii and 360 came out.

It's bad for business to keep cashing in on old products. Sony should follow Apple's footsteps.

Really, it's been 24 hours since the ANNOUCMENT, and people are already asking should the PS3 be discontinued? Are attention spans that short? Or do you really believe that one precludes another?


Universal fact about technology: It's all about the latest and greatest. The PS3 had a good run, but now it's time to move forward. If this wasn't the case, we'd all still be playing the Magnavox Odyssey.

You don't know anything about cars, do you? Or even BUSINESS for that matter?

 

Tell you what. Take some business courses, get your degree, get a job at Sony, and when you're CEO  you can make those descisions. Then we can all watch as you drive the company into bankruptcy.

Who's talking about cars? This thread is about gaming which is a completely different industry. Like it or not, you know that what I'm saying is true when it comes to gaming, specifically. Let me ask you, what's the latest on the Super Nintendo? What about the Sega Genesis? What about the original Xbox? Oh that's right.
