    How long do you think the PS4 will be here until a new system comes out.

    What do you think this length of time will be. I am not going into a discussion on what the next system will be, $#@! the PS4 hasn't even released. What are your predictions for the length of time before the next PS system hits?

    I'm thinking 5 or 6 years. In my mind it's not worth trying to future proof a system because it's impossible. They tried doing that with the PS3 and while it did last 7 years now, I think Sony may try to cut down the length of time per system.

    Yeah 6 years is a nice sweet spot now. I mean we still seeing games for both systems coming out looking better and better so 6 years is a good spot. Longer dev time, easier on consumers wallet.

    haha, I said I don't want to discuss the next system. Ubisoft wants a shorter console lifespan and I think that isn't a bad thing really. 6 years sounds about right, definitely should be less than the PS3 of course. That way it can keep up and it wont lag behind so bad.

    Well every ps console has had a life span of 6 years. But now with the PS4, it'll last a little more. I'd say 7 years. So by 2020 i'd say we'll see a new console.

    Same here. I don't want them coming out too fast.

    And 6 years at most...really? Why do people want consoles to come out so fast?

    I think now more than ever we've reached the peak of how games look, graphically, so consoles should last longer now IMO. Improved gameplay and AI are a must both of which don't need a more powerful system except maybe the AI. Better programing needed there which probably needs a more robust system but not leaps and bounds ahead of what we will have with the PS4 I don't think.

    Focus. Control. Conviction. Resolve. A true ace lacks none of these attributes. Nothing can deter you from the task at hand except your own fears. This is your sky.

    I think it's fair to say that the PS4 will be no different in its lifecycle than the PS2 and PS3. 6-7 years with a couple devs continuing to support it for another 3-4 before Sony eventually discontinues the platform.

    I'm sure about 6-7. The standard for consoles. I don't think the future of consoles is all doom and gloom as many predict. I see both MS and Sony bring these systems out for the same length as all the others. WiiU may not serve the same fate though.

    I'd hazard a guess at about 6 years. It's a fine line really though because if it is shorter you'll get people who complain that it's not been long enough and if its longer you'll get some people who say its gone on too long. Six seems about right to me.

    5 years. This gen will be shorter and that's cool by me. Assuming these consoles are built properly with low failure rates.

    Looking at how fast mobile technology is shaking the world... I wouldn't be surprised if this generation meets and end sooner.

    I would say 7 years until we will get PS5. I hope I would be a live by then.
