Ok, 360 came out in November of 2005, so I'm thinking, E3 '09 we may hear something about the next generation, but who knows. :D

Yeah. We loved MS' worldwide release. Only a 4-5 month wait for us seeing as we aren't part of the world and all. :rolleyes:

Well, I thankfully made a few hundred dollars off my Xbox360, even after playing it for about a month (had to play COD2 of course :D ). The rest of the people here in the US that didn't get one at launch, got one around March of '08, so don't worry, this time, even a whole lot of US people didn't get one. :)

Hopefully in next gen (2nd gen?), ALL games will be at 1080p native.

I think we will start to see rumors or leaked information mid 2008. And a release around nov 2009 from xbox.

Not for a while. They need to bring down game development cost first before introducing more powerful hardware.

You think Microsoft releases first?

I'm still surprised it took so long for Sony to release this gen. They came out a year before Xbox, and a year after X360. They had two extra years and I think they felt the sting this time and have discovered the importance of coming out first (or at the same time). I say next gen we'll see a release of Sony and Microsoft at the same time

In other words, both consoles are rushed come out and have a 50-100% failure rate

Ha, I can see Sony having PS2, PS3 and PS4 for sale all at the same time.

PS3 IS next generation. Nothing can overtake the Cell. Nothing.

The original plan was for it to come out a few months after the Xbox360 launched but they had problems with the Blu-ray drives.

That's why I don't understand when people say(not directed at you) Sony had a whole year more than Microsoft did and PS3 is still about equal to 360 performance wise....the system's internals were finalized way before that. They couldn't just go and throw a G80 chip in PS3...although that would've been nice.(lee)

The original Xbox showed that a better console doesn't matter if you don't get out fast enough. I think Sony thought their brand could pull them through it.

We were running on a solid 5 to 6 year cycle. Microsoft messed with that by getting into the last round (Xbox) late, and the current round (360) early. We have at least two, and ideally another 3 years of solid releases. A console needs a good 5 years IMO. Expect to see the leaks/fakes in late 08, with E3 09 maybe having a few videos here and there.

The 360 is next gen, while the PStres is True Next-GenŽ.

Out of the three, Nintendo is the only one in a financial position to come out with a new console when ever they want. MS is finally making some money off the 360, and they have a long way to go to increase that profitability. Sony is still working on getting to the profitable point with the PS3.

However, I expect the announcement of the PS3 with inclusion of the BD/HD-DVD combo drive to happen any day now (I made that up.)

PS3 is *4D*and renders 5 1920x1080 pictures at 120hz, even on 24hz TVs! :D Meanwhile, it also "knocks out the fat." ;)

The PS3 is the reason why I'm physically fit and can splurge myself this holiday season.

The PS3 is Yaweh, the one called I am. The PS3 is the unmoved mover, the alpha and the omega, the first and last.

Seeing as Sony claims we will see advances in graphics over the nexr 3 to 4 years as developers learn how to handle sooooo much power that is teh cell...I guess nothing will be announced until very late 08 or 09
