Seriously? Developers make the games. They will make them for platforms where they can make more money. At the moment the purchase base is much much larger than for the PS4. It would unrealistic to drop support for a console that is still viable by far. That isn't going to happen for awhile. It's part of the normal replacement cycle when new hardware is introduced.

 

You can continue to push for your speeded up agenda but the marketplace will dictate how quickly developers will move to the PS4 and drop PS3 support. Personally I will continue to enjoy both of my consoles.

Seems like someone is upset. Might as well (if you don't have one yet) wait to get a PS4 cause you got some time till PS3 isn't supported.

The last generation will see long time support  since the PS3 and 360 have many online components like Netflix , games and movies to download unlike the previous console generation of home consoles.

Hi, I'm new here.

 

I know we're all excited for Sony to shift 100% focus to PS4 but let's not be selfish. If developers are able to earn more money from 80M+ install base of PS3 (although we know the active install base must be lower), they will be much more financially secured in the future. And that means they can make more awesome games for us. Besides, if we still have our PS3, what's so bad in playing new awesome games on it again. PS4s not going anywhere anyway.

All I have is a PS3 and cant afford a PS4. I may get one later this year, or in two years. If PS3 support dies before the majority of gamers (and devs) are done wih it then screw Sony. Once most PS3 users have upgraded they can kill it but unti then they should keep it up.


Just got a PS3! Add me for some online action

@Evan297  Thanks, Bud.

 

To the person above me, don't worry they won't. PS3s got 2 more years at the very least so you got a lot more time to save up.

OK, because I know you're just set on being right, most of your post is correct...

However, you need to actually understand what is meant by Sony support, it's not games, it's resources used by the company itself for the console itself. It has nothing to do with third party developers or apps like Hulu...

 

Also, the fact that you think this is some 'agenda' is laughable and please do enjoy your consoles...

Welcome to the forums...

No one said anything about games never releasing on PS3 again, they will for a long while (4 years maybe)

 

But there is a huge diference between games being released and updates, advertisement, departments, etc etc...
