PS4 Lifecycle Might Be Shorter Than PS3
The PS3 has been around for seven years since it released in Japan, the Xbox 360 one year longer, and that seems like a fair stretch for console lifecycle. However, Sony UK believes that the PS4 won’t last quite as long.
The PS4 launches tonight in Europe and on the eve of the launch, Sony Computer Entertainment UK boss Gara told TechRadar: “I think there’s reason to believe that the next cycle might be shorter in markets such as the UK.

“It’s probably a sign of the times and how much has changed in seven years, but I think the willingness and the appetite to pick up new technology fast has probably changed quite a bit.”
Samsung and Apple do it, with new smartphone models launching annually. People always want something better after they get comfortable with their current technology. These days that doesn’t take very long.
Just because there is a willingness to pick up new technology does not mean it must be enabled. The console should last until developers are straining its limits as was the case with Xbox 360 and PS3.
