It's current gen, not next gen.

It would be like saying a newborn baby isn't a new generation in the family since grandpa hasn't kicked the bucket. Little Jimmy is only legitimate when the old man dies.

No, quite the opposite. It'd be like saying a newborn baby is the new generation in the family. You know, like it's part of the new-and-upcoming next generation.

Little Jimmy is only legitimate when the old man steps out of the way (or when he's old enough to push him).

The saying is along the lines of, "The children are the future," not, "The children are the present."

Console generations are not subjective. Whether one believes it or not, this is the Eighth Generation of consoles. Thus, the "next gen."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_video_game_consoles_%28eighth_generation%29

This is not determined by any factor other than when a console is released. Neither power, graphics, games, nor any other aspect of a system have anything to do with whether or not it is next gen. The generations have been established and are widely accepted among the gaming community.

For example, the Wii U, though not able to match the horsepower of its competitors, is still an Eighth Generation console simply because it followed the Wii.

Let's walk through the generations using Nintendo as an example:

First Generation: N/A (Example: Magnavox Odyssey, Pong)

Second Generation: N/A (Example: Atari 2600, Intellivision)

Third Generation: NES

Fourth Generation: SNES

Fifth Generation: N64

Sixth Generation: Gamecube

Seventh Generation: Wii

Eighth Generation: Wii U

It's that cut and dry.

well, 2 of the 3 8th gen consoles haven't been released world wide yet so I think it's ok to still refer to them as "next gen"
