Sony’s predicted that PS3 will be around far longer than PS2 managed to survive, saying the machine is “inherently future proof”.

“PS3 won’t celebrate its second birthday in the UK until March of this year, and we’ve said all along that the life-cycle for this generation of hardware will be longer than previous models,” the firm said in a statement o T3 mag.

“PS2 was still going strong after eight years, and with the power the Cell processor provides, not to mention the fact that PS3 is inherently future-proof, we see the PS3 sales curve far outlasting that of PS2.”

New consoles in 2011? Sure.
