Sony has been hurting, but so have many others. Even Microsoft laid off over 4000. It will not change the game plan though. PS3 will get a price cut this year. Sales will go up and some people may wait for PS4 while many others jump in on enjoying the PS3.
There will be a PS4 in 2011 though. Regardless of the situation. Microsoft plans are aimed at 2010. Which means Microsoft might show up at E3 in June with a new console. Plans are already in motion it would make zero sense to push them back years when the hardware will be ready in 2010 and prepped for launch in 2011.
QUOTE (GAMER_NOW @ March 29, 2009 10:09 pm) Froggyboy, I'd honestly rather get a PS2 than a PS3. There is a lot on the PS2 (Like Final fantasy 8-12) and not too much I'm interested in on the PS3.
True, and you can also play old PSX games. You left out FF7 and FF tactics.
I think sony is doing this, so they can earn less money, but sell more systems. When more people own a PS2, PS2 games sell better since their is a larger audience. Company make most of their money through game sales.
shoot, you can almost buy a PS2 and 360 for the price of a PS3 ... into an aweome endless library with PS2, and the current gen with xbox.
PS3 has yet to impress me, sure it's got great graphics, but when you have to wait 15-20 minutes for a brand new game to "download" itslelf on the system harddrive before you can first play it ... i was done with it right there.
they've got some serious thinking to do before they feel so confident on their next console release.
The installing thing is only for games that are massive. They require so much decompression/compression that an install just takes that away. Would you rather have 5 minute load times in the game or a one time only install of 10 or so minutes depending on game. The answer is the one time install I would think.
btw. PS2 production will die in 2010. PS3 will be getting cheaper by then though while the PS4 takes over market. PS3 will still be around for consumers like the PS2 was around. Games by then will be awesome.
