Nah what you are talking about is not exclusive for this generation, the PS1 was a music player, the next generation could play music and DVD's, the generation after that could do all the previous and also stream entertainment, and this generation does the same as last generation. And backwards compatibilty has been a thing for ages as well. What makes this generetion any different from the last? I stand by the opinion that when (and if) Sony and Microsoft decides to adapt the "hybrid console" formfactor as Nintendo called it, with Nintendo's definition of the name, Then we'll have a "hybrid generation". All console's are expected to do Backwards compatibility and have other entertainment than gaming since a while back, and those consoles that didn't have those features got a lot of critisism. Just look at how some people are bashing the switch for only playing games and nothing else (And that's this generation) And Nintendo call it a hybrid console..
