I'm referring to how things currently look in the market. I'll stick with my 2013 prediction; but as you say, a rumor is just that.

I think we will see a console in 13/14.
But i don't think we should. Late '14 early '15 would be better.

The average consumer is going to want a huge jump between each generation to consider it a worthwhile upgrade.

I agree with this. With games already being in HD and playing as well as they do, I don't think the average gaming consumers are really itching to get the "next big thing" yet. In all reality, your average gamer probably isn't feeling like there is a huge void to be fulfilled right now. There are tons of great games on the horizon. I just got done playing Arkham City and was blown away by the graphics! Nonetheless, I wouldn't mind playing a sports game and seeing people in the crowd that look entirely different from one another...certainly not enough to warrant buying a new system, though.

Im looking forward to Skyrim, the graphics look great as does the new engine. I think there is still enough potential on the 360 and PS3 at the moment.

I know! That and Uncharted are probably going to be my "must play" titles over the winter. There is definitely more than enough potential.

There really is no point in new consoles until they are powerful enough to offer the next revolutionary leap.

Real time Ray Tracing, real time fluid simulation or something like that. Neither of which they will be able to do for quite some time.

It's thinking like this that has held back PC gaming for quite some time.

Im in no way any authority on pc gaming but i think that consoles dont need to come out every year or two and their life spans should be stretched until the potential in them is gone, whereas on pc its different as you can upgrade parts etc. which you cant do to an Xbox.

What im trying to say is that my post was based on consoles only amd PC gaming should have a completely different attitude towards upgrades than consoles. If Microsoft bought out a new console every year or two it will cost a fortune when you take into consideration games may lose compatibility with new versions of consoles and servers for earlier version console games may be cancelled making the online games useless. Whereas PC games are all PC (windows) there arent different versions like PS1, PS2, PS3, XBOX, XBOX 360 et. ect.

This is my view on it anyways, not saying its right or anything.
