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.
