The lights are on
I will eventually get a PS4 anyway, just for the PS4 games, seeing as I am keeping my other PS's I don't need to worry about not being able to go back to an older game to play.
I agree. Still plenty of great games on the PS3 to play not to mention replaying some favorites. I still have my PS2 for the same reasons.
I just bought a PS3, so I have plenty of back-logging to do on getting games for it - so I won't be selling and I still have my PS One and PS2 systems - by the time I do decide to get a PS4, the PS5 will probably be coming out - in other words, its going to be a long time before I plunk down some money for a PS4, especially since I just plunked down money for a PS3.
I personally would NEVER sell my game systems since a reminder of what do or did in the past. I love sony's products and still own the very first playstation one when it came out. I think selling your system to get a new one is a waist of time and pointless. This is since you spend so much money on the products you buy why even worry about selling the item since the value of the system and game goes down in price way to fast.
I shall be keeping my PS3 until the day it stops working.

I wouldn't it was confirmed that PS4 would not have backward compatibility so if you want to play your old games keep the PS3. Eventually they would be available on ps store but who knows how long that would take.
Just start saving up money to buy a PS4 and keep your PS3. There is no need to trade in the PS3. PS4 won't be backward compatible and PS3 should remain strongly supported for a few more years still.
I would assume that trophy information remains saved as part of your PSN profile. They may just have it tally PS3 and PS4 trophies separately, but with both displayed on your profile page. That would be my guess.
I know I'll be hanging on to my PS3 for most of the reasons already listed and for this reason. Completely hypothetical situation (though not impossible), let's take Assassin's Creed IV for example. Let's say on launch day, the PS4 version (despite the so-called "developer-friendly feel" it has) plays a lot like Assassin's Creed 3 did for most consoles: unresponsive at times, frame-rate loss, etc). Yet the PS3 copy plays rather well because developers have figured the console out. Like I said, it's hypothetical, but there is that looming possibilities that these launch titles won't be up to par just yet.
I'm just guessing here, but I'd like to think it works just like how the Vita syncs to your trophy list. If you have both the PS3 and Vita, your trophy library shows a combined list of the games you've played with trophy support. The Vita games (or versions) will be distinguished by a rectangle with the word Vita under it to let you know you've earned it the other console. Having said that, I'd like to believe the PS4 will work the same way with your profile, especially given how much emphasis Sony put on trying to link the Vita to the PS4. As RxWhitePony stated, your PSN profile will have you covered.
I always keep my systems for future play. I have all my PS's as well as many other systems that I boot up from time to time. I won't ever sell it.
i read some where that sony would still support the ps3 up until 2015 along side the ps4 if thats true ill be holding on to my ps3 till then
I already see floods of PS3 and 360 sales all over the internet. People are selling them for dirt cheap, and they're usually bundled with a lot of good games. Prices usually around $150 to $200. Although I want the PS4 on launch, I'll end up getting it two to three years later. It'll have a decent game catalogue by then, I'm sure.
PS2... that's all that needs to be said.
Its a yes and no answer im the kinda of gamer who sells his old stuff for the new but at the same time I love to revisit the past plus my ps3 has touch sentimental value so ill hold on to mine
There's no way i'm selling my PS3; I may even buy the new superslim if mine doesn't make it through this deployment (It's already struggling, I think.) But my game collection is too friggin big to give up the console and backwards compatibility isn't happening for the PS4.
