The only question is whether there's going to be an official generation switch, but in practice, it seems the market is already switching over to shorter release cycles. That is, it seems like this generation is going to mark the switch, and if there's going to be another generation, it'll be just a formality. It's actually sort of funny how quickly this all has happened from a consumer point of view. First there were Wii U, PS4, and Xbox One, which all seemed like they would bring with them a normal console generation. But this year, and maybe last year, there have been a lot of signs this may not be the case.
