According to Sony head of worldwide studios Shuhei Yoshida the PlayStation 3 is in "prime time" in terms of games, service and pricing, and there is no price-cut for the PS3 coming this year.
"There’s no plan for any change we can talk about," Yoshida said.
Gamers shouldn’t expect a new PS3 model this year either, Yoshida said rumors of a new form factor, the super-slim PS3-4000, are only rumors.
"For people who own PS3, rest assured new content is still coming," he said. "Games like Last of Us and Beyond look amazing compared to the early PS3 titles. There's still something surprising happening on the platform."
I don't know about the PS3 being in "prime time." The console is six years old, and the drumbeats for a new console are getting louder and louder. It seems to me that this is a pretty great time for a price-cut.
