Sony Japan President Hiroshi Kawano has said that they do not plan on abandoning the PS3 just because a new console is arriving on the market. Also, he does not expect PlayStation fans to immediately make the jump from the PS3 to the PS4.

In an interview with Famitsu, he said,"It's been seven years since the release of the PS3 and the console continues to sell at a constant pace, plus we have many upcoming titles. We have no intention of immediately shifting from the PS3 to the PS4."

"With the 2014 launch of our cloud service in the US allowing users to play PS3 games on the PS4, some people may switch consoles from the PS3 to the PS4. But that'll be a gradual process."

He also added that it would be "maker's ego talking, plain and simple" if they asked PS3 users to trade-in their PS3 for a PS4. He is hopeful that gamers will make the transition but not demanding that they do it rapidly.
