So I feel like it's every 6 years or so. But doing the math the way TC recommended, it actually comes out every 2.1 years. Crazy!

That's 16 consoles in about 13 years. With plans to get another 360 replacement, and Xbox one in the future.
So that's 1.2 consoles every year.

About 1 every 2 years is the average. I just get every Nintendo system as soon as it is released.
