I would have to say yes. But the next gens first few years will be amazing. All the devs are saving up their ideas for amazing new IPs

I don't think so. It seems from generation to generation the leap in capability decreases. The increase in this generation's lifespan has been necessary.

Thinking back to the Atari days when they were releasing consoles like 2600 and 5200 and 7600, it became MORE confusing for consumers. I think having a decent span of time for a consoles life is a good thing for a majority of people buying and playing games.

I mean, even just yesterday this co-worker lady of mine said she bought Gutiar Hero for her son on PS2, and then found out he sold his PS2 and only has a 360 now. It may be easy for us hardcore's to know whats going on, but the mom's of the world have no clue.

My 16 years of NES and SNES gen? Nah still awesome :3 and before you say they don't make games for them anymore. Oh but Japan still does :3, even if I still have to import them >.>

What are you smoking? You're saying the difference between a PS2 to PS3 isn't as vast as PS1 to PS2?

Everybody has been claiming this generation has been going on for too long but it doesn't feel that long for me.

Only thing is I wasn't going to bother, I played WoW for a while then picked up a PS3 last year.
