Sony Won’t Be Ditching The PS3 Anytime Soon

If all this news of PS4 rumours has got you worried about a potential lack of support for Sony’s Finest (sue me haters), you now have nothing to fear as Sony will be supporting the PS3 at least until 2015. Is this good news to you? Is certainly is to me.

Vice President of Sony hardware marketing John Koller has assured players and fans that the PS3 will be supported with first party content for more years to come. Koller says “A great lot of content is coming” and “over the next two – three years, the PS3 has got an incredible line-up”.

Both Sony and other developers both first, second and third party have repeatedly said that the lifespan of the PS3 is still far from over and that there is so much more the PS3 can do. Just looking at Beyond: Two Souls is evidence enough that this is true.

Now you may wonder what will happen with the release of the PS4. It would be fair to guess that hearing this news that we won’t see the PS4 for a long while yet but could it also mean that Sony has bough some more talented studio’s as first and/or second parties? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

  1. I really hope they don’t fall behind again. They need to kick butt and take names with the PS4. I think the PS3 will be ok the same way the PS2 still did pretty well after the release of the PS3.


  2. im assuming this doesn’t mean that the PS4 won’t be released until 2015 because that would be a bad move by Sony IMO esspesially with devs already working on next gen games
    and the PS4 can’t come out a year after Xbox3 like with the PS3/360, that would not be a good idea
