Default Next Gen Name?

Is it me or is the Next Gen now the current Gen? I am so sick of game dev saying its for the Next Gen talking about the ps3 and junk. It’s been 3 years since Xbox 360 isn’t it time to say current?

It's current Gen now. Computers have far surpassed Console performance again, and thus, they are obsolete.

Your right of course, but it will be a while. Current gen will continue to be called "next gen" until the next gen systems are announced. At that time, current gen will be called current gen, and the PS4/XBox720/Wiitoo will be called next gen...Get all that? LOL

When computers have surpassed the PS2 in gameplay and enjoyment then consoles will have to being to worry about it taking over the gaming market...

It's been current gen for at least a year or two now. It's almost like there was a single second in time that devs quit making PS2, XBOX and GC games and started making JUST PS3, 360 and Wii games; just outta nowhere.

I think you should write a letter and let them know how you feel.

The PS3 is the real next gen, or is it the next next gen. The 360 is only the current gen, and as such plays today's games today. Rather than tomorrow's games, tomorrow.
