After last of us and Beyond Sony should be focusing on ps4 and Vita and then dumping price of ps3 with maybe making low cost casual titles.

Bring on next gen..

The PS4 should definitely be their main focus, otherwise Sony won't be able to regain the market leadership they had with the PS1 & 2. The Vita and the PS3 will have to settle for whatever resources are left after the PS4 has been served.

The PS2's lifecycle was long and could've been even longer, if there hadn't been a transition to HDTVs. 4K TVs aren't going to become commonplace anytime soon, so in that respect the PS3 could have an even longer lifecycle than its predecessors. Sony is also going to be able to sell the Super Slim more profitably than previous models, so it would be great if they could keep the PS3 business going alongside the PS4.

they need to concentrate on ps4. ps3 has been a mess as well as psn. if they want to beat xbox then concentrating on ps4 is how they will do it coz they have already succumbed to the power of Xbox and Live.
