I mean, what are the chances of the 9th gen beginning after the 8th JUST got started? Only an idiot would believe that they would get started on the 9th generation so quickly! The last gen systems are still out, but the current gen is only Wii U right now.

I have no idea what your trying to say so I'll just state that the PS4 and 720 (lol 720, sounds silly) will be 8th generation because their previous iterations were 7th generation and 7 + 1 = 8

If you enjoy being strict on word usage, be so, but accept the fact that most of us don't, and don't try informing everyone on obvious facts.

That's the point. We're currently in the 8th generation so the Sony and Microsoft's systems will be current gen, not next gen. Is it really that hard to discern the context of the first post...especially considering the topic title?

Well, these terms exist for a reason. People ignore this and say that the Wii U is not "next gen" based purely on power when all they have to say is that it may not be as powerful as the other two consoles. Nothing will be next gen. Everything's current at this point.

Incorrect usage is incorrect usage. You can use the term how you like, but don't even begin to think that it's being used correctly.

I think I know what you mean now, people are calling the PS4 and 720 "next-gen" even though their generation has already started. That is because current gen always gets referred to as next-gen until the near the end of their cycle to sound better.

I though the Xbox 720 was 3rd gen and the PS4 is 4th gen!

Now I'm all sorts of confused...
