According to Microsoft, their future is in backwards and forward compatibility... so I see every system from here on out to be iterative. Another half step up from the last. Remaining compatible across the board. I dont think they can go nuts with a radically new hardware design, if thats the case. So something like a new X every 3-4 years.

Sony, on the other hand seem torn. With one person in the company stating that they will keep the console generations separated and another thinking more along Microsofts line. Which is either being done to throw Microsoft off their scent, or they are waiting to see how gamers take the half steps. Though, Truthfully, if I dont see an upgrade to CPUs for advancements to AI and Physics in the next machines... Im going to start worrying about the future of consoles.

I dont mind half step generations every 3-4 years, as long as systems CPUs dont hold bak advancements in world simulation, AI and physics. Which is what needs a leap now that graphics are at such a high level.
