Why do people keep referring to PS3 and 360 as "next generation" consoles/offering next generation graphics.

They are out NOW. That inherently means that they are THIS generation and the PS4/Xbox 720 are "Next generation."

I know it's all just marketing buzz and hyperbole, but man...it's annoying. It reminds me of all the stupid buzz words used at work because managers think it makes them sound smarter/more important.

Marketing BS as allways but if you want next nextgen, go Vista DX10. MS says so :D

Look, I just want to know when it's going to be "this generation."

We've got last-generation graphics and next-generation, but what the hell is considered THIS generation?

I hate marketing so much.

No, but it is. See, next-generation means the stuff we're currently using.

And the next-generation.

Or maybe that's "next-next-generation."

Everything that isn't last generation is next-generation.
