    So I don't mean how long they be work fo. I hear the MS and the Sony saying dat PS4 and Xboner will last 10 years. Dat dis so called "generation" of consoles will be 10 years. Is dis gonna be real?

    I mean, it longer than last gen last for. Longer than most "gens" out of all of them, u understand m8?

    If my understanding is correct, last gen going in, the 360 and PS3 were like super high-end for the time. Even sold for a loss. Dis time around, they be only mid-end dawg. Sold for a profit. Dis make it hard to last 10 years. Dis make it harder to last even as long as last time around.

    So tell me dawg, are MS and Sony lying to us? Ya don't candycoat nothin. I haven't bought neither, so I don't give a damn if it makes you fell bad. I mean there hasn't been a CoD for next gen only yet, so I aint care about it yet.

    I honestly think this gen will be short. Like 5 years or less short. I doubt these consoles will last as long as last gen did.

    That name and this thread should genuinely warrant a ban, for reasons of extreme stupidity.

    I don't speak retard, but going off the title... I imagine this generation will last at least as long as previous ones. Consoles have never been powerhouses of technology, so unless there's some massive breakthrough, I doubt this gen will die early. But who knows.

    Between insane and insecure
    First, are you intentionally typing like an moron?
    Second, who knows, maybe they will support it for 10 years or maybe they mean it will be like the PS2. Where they still have some support during the next generation to easy people into a new generation.

    As most of us have pretty much have been saying, specs are not as important this generation as they have been part generations
    I think we're looking at a generation where the consoles are sold for peanuts with a massive library of interesting games available

    Really it depends on if there are some major advancements in chips sometime soon.

    If Intel and AMD are kinda stuck where they are right now in terms of performance and GPU's haven't been making leaps and bounds either. The companies really will have no reason to release new hardware. Selling games is where the real market is.

    Wouldn't make much sense for MS to release an Xbox Two if all they did was fix what was funky about the Xbox One and Sony wouldn't release a PS5 if all they could boast was a 5% increase in performance. No one would buy it if they couldn't see a difference in the games.

    For the next generation we need something really new/old to shake things up again. Switch back to carts and ditch optical media and hard drives all together. 5 years from now SD media could be cheap enough to get 64GB's for next to nothing. Make part of it writable for levels and saves or patches and enjoy.

    Maybe a company will finally merge the portable and home markets? That would be pretty cool in some ways too.

    I don't think this generation is gonna last nearly as long as the previous ones, let alone 10 years.

    Same goes for the portable market such as the 3DS and PS Vita, since the Android / iOS market is slowly rendering them useless, as new and better games come out. In other words, a 4DS or a Vita 2, would be the biggest mistake Sony or Nintendo could make.

    So yeh, maybe it will last a a few years. But I don't see it lasting as long as their predecessors. On top of which they now have to worry about the Steam giant, and its competitive prices which have been practically stealing thousands of players to Gabe Newell's side.

    Also, if they launch the Steam Machines at competitive pricing (such at the same price as a Xboxone or a PS4, or even lower), i'm pretty sure Valve alone will cripple the market.

    It's not that they're exactly lying, but that they're basing that "10 years" upon incomplete information. Estimates on how hardware becomes cheaper, requirements from developers, requests from users, technological innovation (10 years ago, tablets were non-existent and smartphones were at best a novelty...now they're everywhere. Who knows what'll be common in 10 years?) and more of similar factors. I even think that the fact that nintendo announced a new console was also a pretty heavy influence for MS and sony to announce theirs.

    These consoles will be around for absolutely years. My guess would be at least 2020 before the next consoles even begin to gather any hype.

    There is nothing wrong with the current consoles we have. I would guess that the 1080p telly isn't going to replaced anytime soon in the majority of houses because it absolutely doesn't need to be and any new console which does eventually come out from Sony or MS or anyone else that decides to jump on the bandwagon in the future you would imagine would take the next step up to 2K for gaming. They are not going to do this until TV's like this are in the majority of homes. Here in the UK, we don't even get 1080p TV yet as far as I'm aware so its a long long way off.

    These consoles will still be around and still be being produced ten years from now it's a certainty.

    Something tells me it's going to be about 5, but 8GB RAM makes me want to believe otherwise.
