So you're gonna string two Nintendo consoles together in order to achieve a larger userbase? How about we combine 360/One and PS3/PS4, it's more or less the exact same thing.
A new console in 2016 would effectively be a 9th generation console. And if it isn't, then the PS3 and 360 can be included in the 8th gen as well.
Is this what people are willing to resort to in order to make the scenario look better? John Lucas would be proud of you son.
