Share And Comment

This year more than any other brought great attention towards next-gen hardware and the likelihood that its release is just around the corner. For PlayStation fans, that day could be a lot further off than you think, this according to Sony’s John Koller. The marketing VP told Gamespot recently that “the PlayStation 3 isn’t going away anytime soon” and that Sony will continue to support the aging console until at least 2015.

Plenty of PS3 games are still on the horizon!

“We’re going to continue supporting the PlayStation 3 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 PlayStation 3 is very hot. Same thing with PlayStation 2… it’s kind of stuck around as that old warrior, many years after its launch. But there’s still games launching for it,” said Koller.

He continued, “A lot of great content is coming and over the next 2-3 years, the PlayStation 3 has got an incredible lineup.” Koller mentioning upcoming titles such as Naughty Dog’s “The Last of Us” and Quantic Dream’s “Beyond: Two Souls”. He also promised “a lot of third-party content coming, and a lot of first-party content that hasn’t come out publicly”.

So there is still life in the PlayStation 3 yet, even if its long shelf life is despised by millions of gaming fans crying next-gen. It could be worse though, we could still be in the PlayStation 2 days, could you imagine the horror! If your impatience becomes too much to bear, you can always check out the new look PlayStation 3 hitting shops soon, it might not be next-gen hardware but it is pretty.

When not fighting crime, I dabble in the art of online journalism. Alright, maybe it's not as exciting as headbutting everyday felons like a modern Bruce Wayne, but I need something that doesn't involve bludgeoning something. Get my kicks playing on a fat 80gb PS3, really need an upgrade......and a shave.
