SCEE’s Andrew House has told Edge that PS3 will “significantly outpace” the PS2’s life-cycle, meaning it will hold up longer in the retail market.

“If you look at the PS2, still in some markets going very strong, especially in North America in its tenth year on the market, we still can’t predict where that life-cycle will end,” he said.

“I have a theory that with successive generations, and with more value added and built into the console in terms of experience – and let’s not forget that the PS2 really didn’t offer a tremendously robust network experience – that what you effectively do is potentially lengthen that lifecycle more and more as you get to the next iteration.”
