“Highly Significant” PS3 Games Yet to be Announced, Says Sony

March 1, 2013Written by Sebastian Moss

Sony promised a ten year life for their “future proof” PS3 when it launched in 2006, and it looks like they plan on keeping their word, even if the PS4 is releasing this holiday.

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe’s CEO Jim Ryan was asked by the PS Blog what the PS4 launch meant for the PS3, he replied:

Typically history can help us only so far here. We’re actually still selling PS2s in regions such as the Middle East seven years after we introduced PS3. There are a number of reasons why the transition might be a bit more accelerated this time round, but PS3 is a very important part of our portfolio, certainly in 2013, 2014 and probably beyond that.

I’d point to the software line-up on PS3 that we have coming up – God of War: Ascension next month, The Last of Us, which is looking great, and Beyond later in the year. And there’s other stuff yet to be announced which is highly significant too. There’s a lot coming on PS3 and it’s going to be very important to us for some time yet.

Recently, a Sony slip up seemingly outed Gran Turismo 6 for the PS3 for this year, although it has yet to be confirmed.

Are you happy that the PS3 is going to be well supported, or do you want Sony to focus on the PS4 (and Vita)?
