Sony promises new PS3 games until at least 2015

Remember when Sony said that the PS3 would be a ten year console? As we approach the 6th anniversary of the console, it appears Sony will make good on its word.

Sony's John Koller promised that a "lot of great content is coming" to the console, and not just for the next year or so. "Over the next 2-3 years, the PS3 has got an incredible lineup," he teased.

"We're going to continue supporting the PS3 for the next few years. Absolutely," Koller told Gamespot. "And we're going to continue supporting it not only that long, but as long as there is a development spigot that's running hot. And I can tell you right now, the development spigot for PS3 is very hot. A lot of great games coming."

There's precedent for long-term support for Sony's home consoles. Koller points out that the same thing happened with the PlayStation 2, with games like Persona 4 launching "many years after its launch." Sony already has a number of games planned for 2013, including The Last of Us and Beyond: Two Souls. And now that they've pledged support until at least 2015, maybe The Last Guardian will actually come out on PS3.
