So the Xbox and the PS4 will be released in 2013-14 during the Holiday rush? I seem to remember they talk about the new consoles for about a year or so before they are actually released? Am I wrong in that acertation?
i really dont care what they do as long as they push the graphics up considerably so we dont get shitty ports on the PC, my ps3 is still dead and hopefully the price tag will go down and i can get a new one cheap
Who knows? Maybe we'll be able to see the graphics of the PC in 2010 on a 720/PS4 in 2013/2014....
Speculation of new consoles usually flies around for a year or two prior to their actual announcement. It really depends on how fast these companies can get a working prototype/development kit together. They then send off the kit to select software studios so they can make tech demos, which are often showcased at E3/TGS/GC (Leipzig) for the new systems unveiling.
IIRC, Sony's co-development of the Cell Processor alone started 4 years prior (with rumors of the PS3s capabilities surfacing not long after) to the PS3s announcement.

Keep dreaming buddy, remember that they have to build a sub $500 PC.
To those thinking that the next generation is going to be a big leap, nope, not going to happen. A number of dev's have already said two things: They don't have any clue what to do next, that's why they're rehashing the same crap and putting Kinect/Move functionality into everything, and that they have hit a ceiling with visual fidelity where the biggest stuff they're doing is tweaking existing systems to run/look better, not overhauling them. (EX: the latest Unreal Engine Demo was referred to as Unreal Engine 3.99 by Cliffy B)
When everyone was making fun of and trash talking Move and Kinect, saying Sony and MS were just trying to milk the tit a bit longer, guess what, you don't spend millions in R&D to buy a couple years. This is their future. They've got to appeal to the "hardcore" segment with traditional controllers, and the casual segment with the motion controllers to make as much money as possible.
