PS3 still has 'highly significant' titles yet to be announce

It seems Gran Turismo 6 is indeed a PS3 game then. Personally i'm glad.

They need to support it while the majority of consumers transition to the next generation. That doesn't stop me looking at my PS3 and Xbox 360 like a trusty old pet on its last legs.

I wonder whether history will look upon the ps3 kindly when it's days are over

A couple of years into the ps4 there'll be retrospectives written up about the previous gen as it disappears into history, those write ups are usually the most objective as you would expect with the benefit of hindsight

I wonder whether the ps3 will be seen as a decent console or an object lesson in corporate folly and one man's hubris, a story of how Sony went from market leader to third place in the pecking order

I think the narrative will be decent console with object lesson for all Business / Management students about how not to develop hardware or what happens when you do not have a good management structure in place that will provide checks and balances

PS3 is the first Sony console I thought held its own.
Childhood pictures redeem, clean and so serene
See myself without ruining lines
Whole days throwing sticks into streams

I have crawled so far sideways
I recognise dim traces of creation

I've owned all three Sony consoles, loved the PS3 so no agenda but with the benefit of hindsight spending close on a billion to develop a bespoke architecture based upon a bespoke cell processor seems like folly

It didn't deliver a significant advantage over the standard x86 architecture in the XBox 360, in fact, in some examples (FPS) put the console at a disadvantage in terms of performance. Also, it was an unbalanced hardware design, the RAM provision clearly throttled the speed at which devs could get code to run and stopped Sony from offering cross game chat functionality. Finally, Ken K said the cell was developed not only for ps3 but as a common processing solution for Sony products like their TVs, VIAOs etc. Didn't materialise, probably because it was expensive to manufacture via a vis off the shelf processors, so the kind of synergies and economies of scale Sony were hoping for from a common processor solution did not happen

Like I said, for me it's about the games which were great so no complaints, but from a business and functionality perspective, ps3 did not do what it said on the tin

I think the PS3 experience has been up there with that on the PS2 for me for enjoyment.

I'm wondering what will happen with Rockstars Agent?

The PS2 was actually the best console ever released. The PS3 could have been better than it is, like putting more memory in it according to the type of hardware thats set up in it, and keeping the backwards capatibility. Other than that, its a really good console, don't get me wrong. :)

I was thinking the same thing. I honestly think the PS3's first 2 years were needed for Sony though; they were arrogant beyond belief back then. The PS3 really humbled them, and everything from consumer-centric services like PS+, or even the most recent PS4 reveal that focused almost entirely on how Sony were putting consumers and developers first, show that Sony is now, morally, a far better company.

And just one correction; PS3 is no longer "third place in the pecking order." Back in January, worldwide PS3 shipments overtook that of xbox 360 by 2 million units worldwide. I would have never seen it coming, but despite releasing a year later with horrible year 1 and 2 sales, PS3 actually overtook 360 to be in 2nd place overall, which I think shows how professionally and effectively Sony fought back this generation.

Same here, but it depends on your experience and chosen platform of choice this gen.
PS3 went through a difficult transition at the beginning of this gen, into the HD era and also internet connectivity, so obvious teething problems ensued.
Once it got into its stride and caught up to its rivals with a good library of games and solid online experience, there was no looking back for me.
This gen seemed more like a beta trial for getting HD integration and connectivity where it needs to be in a home console.
Come next gen we should have full HD titles as standard with a solid, connected experience from online gaming to digital downloads, which is fluid, quick and hassle free.

Interesting point, I probably agree with your first paragraph and would add that if the development and first two years of the ps3 were a lesson in mismanagement, the years following have been a lesson in how decent Sony's business management acumen, with regards the video games industry, has been. Like your point, they have learnt the hard way but learn they did and what has emerged is a more engaged Sony, less arrogant, more cognisant of what their customers and developers want.

In many respects the yr2+ experience have seen the Playstation business transition from an engineering centric division to being software centric division, we are seeing that with the ps4. The interview with Guerilla Games this week on CVG was quite telling when the bloke at GG said how engaged the software developers were in the design of the new console and how the hardware engineers were more accountable to the software devs, they were no longer in their 'Ivory Tower' in Tokyo

Sony selling 10million GT6 units at £30 profit each will net them £300million, enough to pay for Gaikai.
Will help fund their PS4 investment.

In its hit to miss ratio then the PS3 wins hands down. The PS2 was okay at best.

No it wasn't, both as hardware and the library it offered it was bettered and has been bettered. The PS3 is the first Sony console worth owning for the first party titles. It carried on the grand tradition of bringing technology that was worth having outside the bedroom into the living room. The PS2 is so so.

I doubt they'll do 10 million units on GT6. A lot of people felt burnt by GT5 and will definitely hold back on a purchase or might not invest at all.

I will always remember PS3 by the Uncharted games. EPIC! *trying to imagine what will come next in the series, and thinks it will be just amazing on the PS4* Cheers! :)
