Sony: PlayStation 3 Support to Continue for 2-3 More Years at the Very Least
Sony's VP of hardware marketing John Koller states that the PS3 will see games support at least until 2015.
Ready to move on to next-gen? While you might not be the only one to feel that way, Sony still isn't ready to send the PS3 out to pasture. Speaking of which, expect software support for Sony's current workhorse to last until 2015 -- at the very least.
In an interview with GameSpot, Sony VP of hardware marketing John Koller states that the PS3 will be getting great content in the next 2-3 years. Mind you, "great content" is very different from shovelware, so does that mean we'll see more PS3 games well past next year?
We're going to continue supporting the PS3 for the next few years. Absolutely. And we're going to continue supporting it not only that long, but as long as there is a development spigot that's running hot. And I can tell you right now, the development spigot for PS3 is very hot. A lot of great games coming. Same thing with PS2…it's kind of stuck around as that old warrior, many years after its launch. But there's still games launching for it.
Well, there you have it, folks! Don't get rid of your PS3 just yet when the PS4 rolls around. Of course, this isn't really surprising since the PS2 is still getting games released for it now. Not the major franchises, but niche and other family-friendly games...but games nonetheless, no?
Are you fine if Sony extends this current generation by a year or should the PS4 and next Xbox be released before 2013 is done?
