Is the XBOX 360 the longest running gaming console ever made in a generation?

2005-2013 is like 8 years long. No other gaming console has ever lasted for that long before, ya know? So why is everybody in such a rush for next-gen?

For what ever reason G_gglypuff completely forgot Ninja Gaiden Black is an Xbox game even though I told him it is and even told him I have it. >_<

PS2 is the longest running console. Fifa 14 is being released next month for the PS2.

New games for the Sega Master System were still being released into the late nineties in Brazil, 15 years past its "birth".
That number gets an *asterix next to it since the system was long past being supported by Sega.
The 360 still has at least another year of support... I hope.

You kind of just answered your own question. The 360 is horribly outdated and it's holding the industry back. We were overdue for new consoles 2 years ago.

Pier Solar was released for the Sega Genesis(1989) in 2010....if that counts then your looking at 21 years from first game to last.

The atari 2600 came out in 1977 and new games like halo 2600 came out in this decade. Try 35 years.
