The odd thing is that the systems which have hit a point where their sales have slowed down dramatically are the PS3 and XBox 360. Now this slow down is probably caused by their prices (the number of people who are willing to spend $400+ on a console is pretty limited) but that is related to these console's "high processing power" and "rich feature set" strategy.

Most consoles follow the same pattern - Big sales in November/December, slow sales in Spring. Except for newly launched consoles (like the Wii, and the 360 two years ago)... well except for the PS3..

Who was it that decided 'power' was how you define a next generation console and in the future when power and graphics cannot be improved does that mean any new console cannot be called next generation?



I think power is used as reference, because that's how it's been done in the past. Wii has somewhat changed the rules.

Also I think that Wii-motes are the future and that the other Consoles will create their own "motes". Specially for sports games, maybe even EA will develop it for it's games? maybe create packages sort of like Guitar Hero?
