"Already"? I'd be surprised if they hadn't. Last I checked PS3 graphics were based on a GeForce 7 series GPU. About time for an update.

lol nice dig at america and 3rd world.

that said, its harder to make the internet fast in bigger areas. are there any other countries that are as big as america, spread out as america, and have faster internet? im asking the question seriously because i dont know.

most asian countries that boast faster internet are barely bigger than california, and have large pop densities in small areas, making it simple to upgrade infrastructure.

Unless the next-gen consoles "pwn" current generation (at the time of their release) PCs, I'm not interested. Gamers need to switch to PC gaming or OnLive so game developers can take advantage of newer PC hardware without being constricted to console hardware.

and free multiplayer,
built in-internet browser
HDMI 1.4
CPU with nearly 3 times the bandwidth.

They don't need a new console any time soon. The Playstation line has always given the consumer the best bang for their buck. The ten yr.+ lifespan speaks for itself.

i like stunted growth, it forces game devs to focus on pulling more out of the hardware with their engines instead of throwing more hardware at it to compensate.

the browser sucks
multiplayer should always be free unless mm, you shouldnt be praised for doing something right thats been done right for 30+ years
what does hdmi 1.4 mean to average people?
CPU with nearly 3 times the bandwidth, but the gpu is held back, so in reality the ps3 is more powerful cpu the 360 more powerful gpu, so they tend to balance.

clock per clock, the cell is way behind on what a average new cpu does. but when the software is specialised for the cell, it can barely par of current intel quad core with ht, and not the high end ones either.

I think a refresh is needed. There are games which you can clearly see need a little -alterations- to play in 4 person multiplayer, and there are games like L. A. Noire which lag at times, as well as Armored Core 4 up close to smoke effects. I don't see why people are complaining AT ALL that there are better gaming consoles being developed. You don't want better-looking games with better AI, Physics, bigger worlds? Pshh.. Then go back to PS1 and play FFVII some more.

I dunno guys, I'm rooting for new consoles with better hardware.

It's better for PC Gamers who don't want console ports of Crysis 2 with outdated or non-revolutionary graphics.

I would never ever waste my money on any console machines because their technologies are always behind it times when compare to high-end PC. PC always win in every ways. Companies make console version for profits and that's it. Xbox 360's hardware is unreliable and PS3's software and network suck!!! Sony and Microsoft don't care about that, they only want money!!

Both the ps3 and xbox 360 are very out of date the video cards inside them have been off the market for years, the new gpu's are so much more powerful and support dx11 consoles do not even support dx10.
The cpu's are also out of date there is a 100 core cpu that sony could use which would be overkill there are 8 and 10 core cpu's out there which would blow away what is used now.

Funny thing is i would rather play a game on my pc because i buy and new pc every year and buy that fastest that is out there i find nothing beat the graphics my pc can put out that is why my ps3 is collecting dust.

"In fact, the current console isn't even middle-aged, with a life expectancy of around ten years"
You have got to be god damn well kidding me. With its 512mb ram it was outdated the day it was released.

Seeing that the Cell processor was designed to be scalable, it would be wise to use 2 of the "upgraded" (single memory space) Cell processors in parallel. 16 SPUs (handling 2 threads each) and a modern graphics processor would easily do the trick. This would also help the issue of backwards compatibility with PS3 games.
