Unlike PS2, Sony says transition from PS3 to PS4 might be accelerated because of various reasons.Asked by the EU PS Blog where the PS4 announcement leaves the PS3, Sony Computer Entertainment president and CEO Jim Ryan said:
We’re actually still selling PS2s in regions such as the Middle East seven years after we introduced PS3. There are a number of reasons why the transition might be a bit more accelerated this time round, but PS3 is a very important part of our portfolio, certainly in 2013, 2014 and probably beyond that.
It must be remembered that, while PS3 has been and still is a great console, the now-ailing machine almost crashed Sony’s PlayStation brand because of the ignorance of executives like Ken Kutaragi. The system’s cell architecture won’t mesh with that of the more PC-like PS4, leaving a bad relationship between the two siblings.
