Will Microsoft kill the 360 quickly like Sony is killing the PS3?

I think both systems will be around for a few years. Let's not forget that destiny will be on all systems. Bungie probably wouldn't put their game on dying systems, and let's face it they probably know what Sony and ms are planning when it comes to how long they're going to keep them around.

Support your developer. Buy new.

If ps3 is on an express elevator, 360 is on a rocket ship. Only high profile exclusive on the horizon for the 360 is gears of war judgement which is kinda like the ODST of the Gears series. Sony on the other hand has 3 high profile sony exclusives (god of war ascension, the last of us, beyond). I honestly wouldn't be surprised if MS launched the nextbox a month before the ps4.

Anyways, neither console is going to be dead for me anytime soon. Have a massive backlog to get through.

360 is already dead, you guys are starved for exclusives.


Xbox360 has been the #1 selling console for over 2 years in the U.S. (which is basically the World / Universe). Exclusives and best quality multiplats= 360.
So nice.

I would think Micro could keep the cheaper Xbox 360 around. Drop it to $99 - $129 this holiday season, and it will continue to sell.

Sony isn't going too kill off the ps3; the only just stop making ps2 this year.

Question is... Do you really want GTAV on 360 or ps3... Cuz we all know a next gen with higher resolution textures will come... Hmm. I think I might rent it lo first.
I still can't believe this gen is ending... It lasted long but feels like yesterday to me lol.

It costs a lot more to manufacture ps3 than ps2.
ps3 died for ps4.

People were still buying PS2s.

Will people still be buying PS3s for that long after the PS4 is released?

They aren't going to (or, at least shouldn't) support a system that there is no demand for.
