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!

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.
