While Sony might have launched their PlayStation 4
console several months ago, it does not mean that they will focus less on the PlayStation 3. In fact during an interview with GameSpot
, SCEA director of hardware marketing, John Koller, stated that there is still a lot of life left in the PlayStation 3 and that everyone should not disregard the PS3’s install base, which at the moment is definitely sitting way higher than the PS4
at the moment. According to Koller, “We believe that the platform has a lot of life left in it. Two, three, four years; we think there’s time left in the platform. It depends on the content. We have a good lineup this year and it looks like a good lineup next year.”
Koller’s comments seem to suggest that Sony would like developers to continue pushing out titles for the PS3 despite the fact that the PS4 is the latest console. We guess developers probably don’t have to be told twice since as Koller pointed out, the install base of the PS3 is greater than the PS4 at the moment, and for publishers and developers to ignore that would be a mistake. “We need to keep fueling that. We really have to keep PS3 alive. And so to do that, we have to further the content. I think there will be a good story for the PS3 over the next year to two years.” So PS3 gamers, if you are still on the fence about upgrading to the PS4, fret not because you would still have a couple of years left to decide.
