Game console for Sony Playstation 3 released dozens of projects of all genres, and new games will come out for at least another 2-3 years. Of course, after the release of the PS4 Sony is unlikely to support the previous version of the issue of exclusive hits, but multiplatforming the game will come out exactly the same as before (a striking example is new items such as The Sims 4, FIFA 15, NHL 15, Watch Dogs, etc.).

Despite the fact that Sony plans to launch Gaikai cloud service that allows you to use games from PS3 to PS4, it is unlikely to be free, and reprint all your favorite projects can cost the user a large amount.
