Forget the PS4 Rumors: PlayStation 3 will Keep Us Busy for Years


Sponsored Links
321w ago - Just bought a PlayStation 3 console when I read the rumors of a PlayStation 4 coming out soon and all the mind blowing possibilities of the theoretically new console.

I could barely afford the PS3 much less worry about what its going to cost for a PS4. But, based on what Paul Holman (Sony Vice President of Technology) told TechEBlog in 2006, the PS4 will not be out until at least 2010.

Then there's the rumor that the future PS4 will use the same existing cell processor that the current PS3 uses, according to a Japanese tech news site PC Watch. I'm not sure about that because if this rumor does prove to be true, I'd be sorely disappointed.

For the most part, why invest in all these upgrades for the PS3 coming out soon only to purchase a PS4 which as we experienced with the PS3, having limited to no backwards playability again?

They just came out with a PS3 Bluetooth headset for the console, not to mention a possible controller that will function like the controllers of a Wii.

Sony is still upgrading the PS3, and making it more backwards compatible for those of us still clinging to our PS2 to play our favorites.

It's hardly news that Sony will be planning a PS4; surely people understand that whenever you buy a new laptop/desktop PC that it will be out of date pretty much straight away & they cost just as much/if not even more than a PS3.

Fashions change, technology gets faster, things move on, it's not a revelation, get used to it! !!

I paid closer to $600 for my 60gb PS3 though at the time it was more like $650 due to the fluctuating currency (£/$).

If the PS4 launched tomorrow I wouldn't buy it, I have not yet got my monies worth though I suspect LBP will go some way towards appeasing my appetite for a while.

I think it's a good thing to stick with the ps3 for such a long time. The CPU provides a lot of power but the only thing that bothers me is the gpu. It's not realy the best what you can get.

You have a lot of outwashed or just blurried textures, allmost no AA. It's just not enough for me and i would definatly buy a now one as soon its out, just to keep playing. What else can you do if the pc means nothing nothing to the companies.

If you have the ps3 as a htpc there is nothing you can surely stick with it for a long time and still can play games with it. No need to buy a new one.

Don't bother a lot 'cause it's still a lot of time ahead of us until we see a new console be it xbox720 or ps4.

Well, I think whether or not the PS4 comes out in 2011 or not is completely dependant on what the Xbox 3's specs will be. It doesn't hurt for Sony to atleast plan these things far in advance.

The good news is that with twice as much power the ps4 may be able to handle ray-tracing and it might have to considering that the x-box 3 will most likely have DX11 which will support raytracing.

You didn't expect Sony to do nothing as their competitors are releasing consoles, did you? Microsoft and Nintendo have really opened Sony's eyes to how much conpetition they have.
