One thing that interested me though…

We’re looking at a life cycle of 10 years with the PlayStation 3.[/quote:24630ba7cc]
…according to Sony President Ken Kutaragi.
Seems like developers will have plenty of time to get used to it. :D


So, what’s changed. The PS1 already has had a lifecycle of 10 years, the Ps2 will have a lifecycle of 10 years and not surprising that the PS3 will have a similar lifecycle. The console cycle is not a 5 year cycle folks, it’s 10+. The PS1 sold more consoles in the second 5 years than it did in the first. These are the economics of the business.
