Rumors have been swirling, about the Series S/X console generation being cut short and getting a jump start on the next one.  This seems like it could be a double-edged sword.  On one side they could gain a little bit of a head start on their competition, but at the cost of possibly pissing off tens of millions of consumers who have already invested in the current generation.

They could change their marketing strategy and really start pushing the current generation, not to mention they have many heavy hitting titles (console movers) on the way, and remain in it for the long haul.  And these heavy hitters will still be there for a new generation as well and could even make excellent launch titles.  

What I find most troubling is their current marketing messaging, I'm not even sure anymore what the hell their goals are anymore.  They have given the impression that they're not as interested in hardware anymore, then at other times they state that they are.  This mix-messaging is not doing them any favors and if they continue on to their next console without a clear and concise mission statement, then it would just be another crap show for that generation as well.

I'd be in favor of it ending early if they had a crystal clear roadmap for it's future.  I'm against it if they're just going to throw some more shit at the wall to see what sticks. avoid getting banned for inactivity, I may have to resort to comments that are of a lower overall quality and or beneath my moral standards.
