PostSubject: Will PS3 last longer then PS2?   May 7th 2012, 2:45 pm

I don't know if PS2 are still stocked new, but since 2012 I haven't seen any new models stocked at Wal-Mart. So forgive me if 2012 is not the cut off date, I'm only going on by what's happening around here.

Ok, so PS2 released in 2000 correct, and lasted up to 2012. A good 12 year life cycle.

Now PS3 released in 2006, it's only 6 years old and new consoles are already being talked about.

Now PS2 lasted as a "secondary" console, as it it wasn't getting most major titles, and wasn't a major console, for years for 2 simple reasons.

1) Massive fan base, very popular console.
2) Really cheap. $99 NEW, as low as $30 used.

So it lasted 6 years into PS3's life span.

Now, Sony boasted PS3 as being a 10 year console. That means according to Sony PS3 has at the very least 4 years left. However, if a new console releases, oh... lets say next year. Would PS3 have enough fan base, or would it be cheap enough to keep selling like PS2 did. After all, if your going to spend $200+, you may as well go for the PS4.

Honestly Sony's Cell isn't just hard to work with, but from what I hear is expensive to. I expect PS3 to last maybe a year or so after a new consoles release, as long as it still gets most major games. But when most dev's move on, I have serious doubts that PS3 is going to survive basically on EA and THQ sports games like PS2 has the past few years.

So my guess is that PS3 might, just might hit 10 years. But I doubt it's going over that. If new consoles releases early, I actually see PS3 dying before the 10 year mark.

What is Mystic's views on Sony's 10 year estimate.

I think 10 years is a good estimate. Objectively speaking, I think PS2 is the best system of all time, even if it's not my favorite. 12 years was a damn good run and the library of games it had was ridiculous.

I don't see PS3 lasting longer than PS2 if Microsoft and Nintendo push their next gen consoles quickly and they both take off.

Hope so but doubt it my sweet beloved PSP may not make the 10 year mark the way things are going.

I believe the Ps3 will live as long because there are so many great exclusives like uncharted and GoW and KH3 might come on the ps3.

PS3 will last a little longer now because there isn't a new XBOX system yet.

Well considering Sony's 10 year contract is still around, there is a possibility they can expand it and continue to give us a few more good years with the PS3 before they move on and considering the only thing they have to worry about as of now is the WIIU sense Microsoft hasn't made a new console yet with the rumors of them currently working on one. Sony might have a chance.
