The console will be phased out over several years. Until the majority of the player base has moved over to PS4.

it will be years before support is dropped altogether but as time goes by support will start to drop off as titles become ps4 only.

 

its already happened with uncharted 4 and i expect if there is another gow it will be ps4 only.

 

smaller psn titles will still be in abundance and jap titles will still be strong on ps3 as they are usually a little slower to change to the new consoles.

you can expect it to be supported for another 10 years, games will dry up more or less in 3 years from now. after that you might get a good one now and then, but most indies and fifa etc.. but in 2016 its definitive worth getting a ps4, prices is down by then,ps4 will have bigger hd, there is a lot of games and they are cheaper etc etc

My guess is 2-3 years best. After that it will only get indie games. Ps3 official support ends when they stop making the console so tha might be 5 years from now

I think it be years before the PS3 will be redundant it's still selling strong, even if it came to a stop there's hundreds of games out there that I've never played yet. I have a xbox360/ps3/ps4 I still and enjoy playing all the last gen consoles. I don't think you have to worry while the ps3 and games still selling well, sony would be stupid to stop supporting the ps3.

Not much longer.  They are about to close the Home service soon and i think that is the first sign of Sony cutting the strings.  Just my opinion though.

If I was even considering buying a ps4, most new ps3 titles will probably be released on ps3 & ps4, I couldn't bring myself to buy the ps3 version.

1st party is pretty much drying up this Christmas. After that I think it will be 3rd party only for maybe 18 months or so tops

I remember reading it was promised to have a 10 year lifespan so as PS3 was introduced in 2006, maybe the support will be discontinued in 2016-17?

I hope Gran Turismo 6 will stay supported at least until the console support itself, online servers, updates, DLC material even if GT7 is released sooner for PS4.

I think they will support Ps3 for 3-4 years after that they will stop manufactoring it.
