I just came across following headline “Xbox 360 to win next-gen console race?” over at GameIndustry.biz and no I’m not writing this to pick on them but it was just the very last case of generation mess I saw. I notice this issue many times before.
So it is about Xbox 360 and winning the next generation console race. EXCUSE ME but Xbox 360 is NOT next-gen and don’t get me wrong neither is PS3 or Nintendo Wii. They are CURRENT generation of consoles. Let us have a look:
- Nintendo: Game Cube
- Sony: PlayStation 2
- Microsoft: Xbox
- Nintendo: Wii
- Sony: PLAYSTATION 3
- Microsoft: Xbox 360
- Let us wait and see what they will announce in the future.
Sure there are also ‘older generations’ with Nintendo 64, PSone, SNES, Dreamcast and many more.
When PS3 and Xbox 360 was announced they became Next-Gen then they got released and therefore must be current generation of consoles.
Oh, and who is going to win the current generation race; who knows. My guess is that they will all 3 be winners, one way or another.
Anyway this is just my opinion on this. I’m sure not all will agree.
