Forums - Gaming Discussion - Why is this console gen regarded as long/longest ever?

PS1 - PS2 - PS3 - PS4

1995 - 2001 - 2007 - 2013

Every generation has lasted 6 years.

This gen didn't start with the PS3, it started when the 360 came out.

2005 - 2013

8 freaking years!

if you have a decent gaming pc, console games look like atari games when in comparison, i hate 720 so damn much, complete garbage!!!!!! even cell phones are on the level on current gen consoles with the tegra 4 coming out. like ive said before, im a graffics whore.

Get your politics out of video games! Your politics suck like your game. WTF happened to just having fun!? Leave the propaganda home.

The generations doesn't start and end with Sony

Hardcore=elitist casuals

Prediction: PS4 will be more powerful and cheaper than XBOX ONE

Lol, a generation doesn't start unless Sony says so. XD

"She knew that my memories of her would fade. Which is precisely why she begged me never to forget her, to remember that she had existed. The thought fills me with an almost unbearable sorrow. Because Naoko never loved me."

I don't know if you were being sarcastic, but most people choose one console, so as a Playstation owner I don't care about other console release dates and measure generations by Sony consoles.
