A lot of people believe its visuals, but that's not the case. Its the way each of the 3 systems were built and designed that makes them next Gen. Ceaselessness and new ways to interact with your media are the future, graphics have pretty much hit their threshold.

You know, i didnt even know that nin had a new album come out last year until i saw in the paper that theyre coming here on tour this august? In that moment, i realized that i was too old to define a generation by anything other than time.

Actually it goes by iterations... A new console is part of next/current gen.

Graphics have a long long loooooooooong way to go before they reach as good as can possibly be done. You are seriously underestimating technology and how fast it is multiplying in growth.

To be honest, when I think of next gen, I think of innovation. Innovation is something Microsoft are doing and I believe it's more innovation that will keep consoles selling.

How so, if he played games on high end PCs, he would know that graphics can still progress quite a bit.

I would say the xbone is more innovative as a media center more than a gaming console
