Though the PlayStation 4 is Sony's marquee console right now, don't expect the company to step away from the PlayStation 3 anytime soon. That system has sold more than 80 million units to date, and this figure is growing still, PlayStation software product development head America Scott Rohde says.
"People are still buying PS3s," Rohde told GamesIndustry International. "All the different parts of the world just adopt new technology at different rates. We don't know how long the PS3 tail will last. We don't know how it will be compared to the PS2. The PS2 lasted very deep into the PS3 cycle. There was a broad price difference between PS3 launch and PS2 end of life. We don't know where all this is going to go, but we will continue to support the PS3 through first- and third-parties as long as there is a good business there for us."
Third-party support for the PS3 remains strong, with many major franchises coming to the platform this year. These include heavy-hitters like Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Far Cry 4, Dragon Age: Inquisition, and Destiny, among others. On the first-party front, Sony is bringing LittleBigPlanet 3 to the PS3 this fall.
