Sony Has No Current Plans to Halt Support of the PlayStation 3…Until at Least 2015
Following the recent TGS announcement of a newer, (and yet again) slimmer PlayStation 3 console, Sony has clarified that it has no current plans of diminishing its focus on the PS3 or its forthcoming software lineup, according to PlayStation VP of hardware marketing John Koller. So long as developers are interested in supporting the system, Sony will support it just as it did/does for the PlayStation 2 (launched in 2000) – which, might I add, is receiving FIFA 13 this year.
“We are increasingly bullish on the PS3′s prospects not only this year but over the next few years. A lot of great content is coming. And over the next two to three years, the PS3 has got an incredible lineup.
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,” Koller says. “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.”
And since Sony is so adamant about supporting the system, why not pick up one of the bundles that just launched today? A new, 250GB PS3 will run you $270, and upsizing to the 500GB will run you $300, so add some PS3 to your life if you’ve been holding out since…oh, 2006-ish?
