Are you starting to wonder that if don’t make the jump from Sony’s PlayStation 3 to the PlayStation 4 you’ll lose support? Sony reveals that they have no plans on leaving the PlayStation 3 consoles for the time being. As long as gamers continue to use and support the PlayStation 3, Sony will back it with updates and video games.
Sony’s PlayStation software product development head for the United States, Scott Rohde spoke with Gamesindustry International. During the talk, Scott revealed that the company isn’t planning on leaving the PlayStation 3 behind to only focus on the PlayStation 4.
All the different parts of the world just adopt new technology at different rates. We don’t know how long the PS3 tail will last. We don’t know how it will be compared to the PS2. The PS2 lasted very deep into the PS3 cycle. There was a broad price difference between PS3 launch and PS2 end of life. We don’t know where all this is going to go, but we will continue to support the PS3 through first- and third-parties as long as there is a good business there for us.
This is a good sign for those who are still gaming on the PlayStation 3. As mentioned, there’s no sign as to how long gamers will continue to use the PlayStation 3 with the PlayStation 4 consoles already on the market today.
