Is the PS3 Sony's Last Run?
Posted 10/6/11
Rumors and business practices seem to point out that Sony may be leaving the PS3 as their last console,

Sony's rep, ever since the PS2 released has been getting worse and worse, the PS3 almost got banned permanently from North America and Europe,

They've been accused of oppression and other weird business practices they've been doing lately,

And thanks to Sony, I may have your credit card information,

Is the PS3 Sony last run?

I don't think so, maybe the PS4 is going to be their swan song, but one things for certain,

Gamers are starting to resent Sony because of their TOS,

Even IGN(Big PS3 fanboys), think Sony is stepping into territory they shouldn't be in.

What do you think?

Me personally, I really hope this is Sony's last run,

I'm hoping somebody better gets to making a console,

Like Apple or Google.

Just as long as I can still play my JRPGs I don't care what console I'm using. Besides I don't have a credit card and if I need anything from their online store I'll just use a gift card. So they won't be getting much info on me.

EDIT: This should be in the Playstation subforum.

Wasn't this news like 1-2 years ago? (except for the hacking incident). If Sony was to leave PS3 as there last console then they would already said so already... As long as business in the gaming industry is good for Sony, then they will definitely continue their console (unless a new CEO discontinued it)...If more then anything, Nintendo Wii seems like a better candidate to have their last console because although the Wii is popular, what are they going to do next that can top off the Wii and get people to buy it? Gaming industries are always topsy turvy but as long as Sony have great exclusive games in their company then they shouldn't have anything to worry about

I don't see your point... I think that my PS3 is the better system out of all of them that I own, which is all current generation systems. Sony may go to a PS4, but at current time and because of things like Firmware Updates for the PS3 I see no point except to get more money from customers. The Wii is failing the most.

Well PS4 will probably be introduced from Japan, hence the new TOS so that Japan is a separate entity from US and UK. I don't think this will have an effect on the PS4, but assuming the innovations the PS3 brought, we probably won't be seeing the PS4 anytime soon. PS3 will probably dominate the console market shortly, PC will forever remain strong though. Apple and Google are probably a few years behind in making consoles, but I would also like to see them come out with a new product on their own besides a phone.

By no means is the PS3 a failure. Sure it wasn't as successful as the PS2. The PS3 has sold around 52 million units, pretty damn good from any business perspective.

Apple or google making a console...
Dude,what now?

Stick to a PC if that happens.

Sure the PS3 had a crappy start.
But the during it's mid life it turned good.
Then in it's final years will go out with a health library. And games in Japan is flowing through it.

Sure it's not as long lived as it's older bro the PS2 but it was still an awesome console.
So expect a new gen console 2 years from now. Same with micorsoft and a year for nintendo.

Vita is coming out (it's playstation still lol)

And as for a non-handheld console.. There will be one after the new Nintendo (cause they announced that Nintendo will beat Xbox360 and Ps3 in terms of hardware/performance).. So obviously both companies are gonna try and surpass what Nintendo's new gen console will be when it comes out..

I would hate to see a console done by Apple, considering the hardware that they put out is usually leagues behind what's available anywhere else for half the price. The only selling point would be that idiots can use it (one button controller, GO!) and it comes in a shiny case with nicely rounded corners.

Really, the idea that someone new is going to really storm the console market is pretty far-fetched. The companies that are in it right now have been in it for years (or decades) at this point. As long as there is a profit to be made, nobody's going anywhere.

Don't forget, Sony is pretty slick when it comes to making consoles that double as entertainment centers. The PS2 played DVDs and the PS3 played Blu-Ray (unlike the DVD enabled Xbox360 with the terrible HD addon). For many people (and gamers) that was a selling point, especially when the system came out. For a little more than the price of a standalone player, you got a gaming console.

Not all Sony's decisions have been the best (Hi, PSPGo!) but they've got a pretty entrenched following at this point. I've personally purchased all Sony's consoles and a PSP and have never regretted that decision from a gaming perspective. I fully intend to continue to support Sony as a gaming company, and I'm sure that I'm not alone in that.

Also, you may want to reconsider the intelligence of admitting on a public forum that you "may" have a list of illicitly obtained credit card information. Most people that would download something like that wouldn't be silly enough to admit something so illegal in a place where it would be actionable.

edit: forgot to specify Xbox360
