wow lol, talk about long dead threads being revived, i guess i was right overall, a new ps3 model did come out along with a psp model byah! also, the ps4 and next xbox have been in development for some time now... :-p
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.
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.
Ice,have you seen how much lasted until Sony released PS3?
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
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.
That is exactly what i'm thinking,Crisis Causer
Possibly, including the PS3 Home.
