Now the Smoke has well and truly settled with the release of the latest Gen consoles, well apart from the odd Rant and/or fan boy post, i was sitting here just thinking about how long ago it seems when i was first Wow'd with the Xbox 360 and PS4.
With both companys expecting their new consoles to be supported for around 10 years, the last Gen consoles have reached their said year life cycle more or less.
The thing is, these consoles have both created their own massive market and online comunity.
which on both sides of the fence the users still their love playing on their Xbox360 or PS4.
That means there is still a strong well established market with pleanty of money still to be made.
With that in miind why would Microsoft or Sony want to stop suporting their last Gen systems, Just because they have released newer Gen consoles?
Why stop supporting something that still makes money on Hardware, related product services and software ?
Even more so when the hardware costs alot less to make from when they first released the tech.
To me this would be a totaly stupid Business move, the more i think about it, i can't help but keep thinking, it would only make sense to stop supporting them when the market starts showing a fast downward trend in sales of hardware, paid product services and software.
Maybe with this Gen of consoles, they have learned something new from the last Gen when it comes to announcing the life cycle of the product support.
