SCEE: The PS3 install base is growing faster than PS2s

Sony President David Reeves has said at the DevStation developer conference in London that the "PS3 install base is growing faster than PS2's was at this point in its lifecycle.”

Obviously buoyed by this fact, Reeves began to outline Sony's vision of the future for games and gaming.

"The key to the future is the PlayStation Network. Games put straight onto PSN are the big opportunity,” he said.

“We do believe that the disc-based delivery system will fall as the power of the network base rises. At the same time the overall industry growth will continue to go upwards as we push out into emerging markets."

“What we don’t see is an overall decline in the market. This is a golden era of video games.”

Thanks MCV.
