PS3 line-up good for the next three years

Sony's John Koller, VP of marketing, has said that the company has plans for at least another two to three year of quality new releases for PlayStation 3.

"Over the next 2-3 years, the PS3 has got an incredible lineup," Koller said in a recent interview with Gamespot.

"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. And I can tell you right now, the development spigot for PS3 is very hot. A lot of great games coming."

Playstation 2 is of course a classic example of this strategy, with many of the system's best games actually coming at the end of its life-cycle. With Sony releasing a new PS3 Slim system, perhaps this signals the last stages of Sony's plans, and quite possibly the most successful for the system so far.

Great to hear. Although, next E3 I expect will be primarily about a certain big, new, console. :P

I don't understand how everyone is so obsessed with the next console. How it will save the games industry slump. When all the talk about it at the moment and speculation is causing people to not invest in the current console. I have seen numerous comments all over the place on deal sites and such for PS3 consoles "yeh but the new one is apparently out next year so might as well wait" - these kind of comments come from the purely speculative assumptions of the games media which is contrary to Sony saying they have several years on the PS3 yet. Good to hear the lineup is great and will be all the way to the end of the lifecycle. It may inspire some confidence in the market for the current systems and the newly released super slim. If the games media can stop reporting speculation on the new PS4 people might buy the PS3.

ukdazza, I think It'd be silly to not buy a PS3 with a new one out next year. Over a year away and people are missing out on a brilliant catalogue of games.

That's great and all, but I hope this doesn't mean that we wont be seeing the PS4 until after Sony's 3 year line-up.

I don't get how people think a new console will be out next year. If they announce it at E3 next year then it won't be out until the year after AT THE VERY LEAST. You'd think people would understand this by now.. or am I now a part of an older demographic and no longer the primary audience of these things? because either I'm overly cynical or people are pants-on-head retarded.

Totally the same with you, cause like the Wii U that wasn't announced until like 2011 and a bit in 2010 and now its finally coming out this year, the trend will always be like that to hype the consoles

Yeah It will be at least a couple years I guess till the release of a PS4, and that's fine with me, I'm still pretty far away from feeling in need of an upgrade, especially now my Vita takes up a lot of my time.
