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.
