PS3 Is Here To Stay For A While Longer

on August 22, 2011 2:00 PM

It’s a well established fact that this generation of consoles, having been on the market for a good six years, is the longest running in video game history. And according to Sony exec Shuhei Yoshida, that will continue to be the case. In an interview with Eurogamer, Yoshida stated the following regarding an announcement of a new Playstation generation:

“So as long as we and our developers can create new experiences that are more exciting to consumers, I see no need to transition into newer generation.”

In other words, we won’t get new consoles until we ask for them, and not just with our mouths or words, but with our wallets. It’s about time that new consoles are at least introduced to the market, and statements like this just hurt the progress of the industry. When the PC is years ahead of the current generation of consoles, then you know you have a problem.
