I am very curious, why cant the xbox one and ps4 have better hardware?

i mean better hardware to keep up with 2013 pcs, i never really understood this, they are using technology from two years ago, is it to keep cost down? I mean wouldnt be nice to have a gtx 680 in both consoles at least instead of a cheap 1 1/2 year old card? The consoles release almost 2014 but are two years behind, y not at least be right on the money in the present time and not the past?

the other thing is the new consoles are suppose to be around 8 years this time, my god by that time we will be well into the gtx 1000 series and way up.

It's better with the consoles having GCN rather than Kepler, that might prompt features like PRT being used in PC games as well

everyone is keeps saying price, well howabout maybe the companys are just lazy and want to step up the game a little bit, being two too three years behind is pathetic.
