I guess we have to wait at least 5-6 years for a new model of PS3 to come out.The current PS3 can be improved a lot and Sony sends firmware upgrades pretty quick.

what the heck are you talking about? wait 5-6 years for a new model of ps3, we will already be on the ps4.

gaming cycles are around 5 years or so. around 2010-2011 we see ps4, jesus christ man......

also, can you name some specific areas in which the ps3 firmware needs improvement??

i do not think so. you buy a gaming console FOR GAMING anything extra... is just that extra. i wish i had a gaming console that could bring me beer and such but that is unrealistic to expect anything apart from movies, and games from a game console

and the playstation live/network is free and intresting.

please take some time to think about your posts :-)

Ice, a Playstation 4 in 2010 or 2011 would actually be unusual.  So far, Sony have done 6 year releases.  PS1-1994, PS2-2000, PS3-2006.  I would not expect a PS4 until 2012 at the earliest.  Microsoft does shorter life cycles, so 2010 or 2011 for the next Xbox is without any question, however.  Especially since they need higher storage capacity than DVD. 

A new PS3 in 5-6 years may seem like a bad estimation, but remember Sony revised the PS1 with the PSone in 2000, 6 years after first launching the console.  The PS2 was revised to the Slim in 2004, and in 2007 further revised to have no external power brick.  The PS3 will likely recieve a major revision to be made smaller sometime next decade, and like the PS2 may recieve even more piecemeal updates as time goes on.

completly agree with you on all points except ps4. microsoft managed to dent sony pretty bad with the year headstart of xbox 360 and even now sony is playing catch up. i dont think it will do that same mistake again. also a executive at sony commented on ps4 coming around 2010, however with date slips and problems. i think 2011 is most likely. still thats not saying the ps3 will become worthless when the ps4 comes out, heck look at the ps2 now it is still going strong.

End of 2000 - launch date of PS2

November 11,2006 - launch date of PS3

The PS2 lasted more than 5 years on the market,without the presence of PS3,and it is still going strong

true, but look at the ps3 now, its still playing catch up to the xbox 360. do you think sony would want to continue playing catch up forever? it will want to be realeased first.

im not saying the ps3 will die the moment the ps4 comes out. i think the ps3 has a good 6-8 years of life. but that doesnt stop sony from releasing a ps4.

If a new console will come so fast from Sony,like that site says,then the PS3 will be the worst console in the Playstation history!Even the PS1 lasted more,much more and A LOT of games were developed for it in the process!

I guess the number of the games that are now for the PS3 are not 1/4 of the games that were and are developed for PS2!PS2 did not need even an upgraded firmware!

Playstations 1 and 2 had the advantage of being the market leaders.  PS3 won't see as many games since it's currently in last.  But I still think Sony won't rush to market a PS4.  I guess 2011 is a possibility, but I'm still guessing 2012 most likely.

I'm not sure what you mean about the firmware.  Last-gen consoles could not be updated.  All of the current gen receive new firmware periodically.
