It depends, revisions aren't objectively superior. Features can be removed, reliability varies, etc. There are examples of both improvements and downgrades in revisions of MS, Sony and Nintendo hardware.

There is certainly little or no interest in losing money on hardware. But with diminishing returns in visuals, I think that helps them get away with it. I mean modern games can be gorgeous on reasonably priced specs.

Oh I agree. Hence the need to judge each device on it's own individual merits upon release.

There is certainly some negatives that can be drawn from the Xbox 360 E and Playstation 3 Super Slim compared to their prior versions the Xbox 360 Slim and Playstation 3 Slim for example... But I cannot think of any negatives of the Xbox 360 Slim over the older fat OG Xbox 360's.

But in general, the trend is a smaller, quieter, simpler, more efficient, more reliable device.

Well the original 360 units were crap and I'm sure you know numerous reasons why. The 360 S basically just fixed a poorly designed device that was already lacking features. The underwhelming BC was primarily software based so they didn't have to remove that. The 360 E really just removed some stuff, it wasn't really an upgrade for consumers.

It sounds like people are really expecting cheap revisions of PS4 and X1, the super slims. I'm just reminding people CONSUMERS didn't get cheap hardware in spite of the cheaper to produce revisions.
