    How long will PS4/X1 last?

    It's known that this is the first time "next-gen" consoles are not cutting edge and are quite a bit behind PC in horse power.

    Current gen was here 7-8 years before the new stuff is out.

    How long will this next gen last? How long should it last?

    When we can get another reasonable power jump for $400-$500

    I think that as long as epic exclusives come out on the PS4 (Killzone 4) It will last as long as the PS3.

    I feel that the power of consoles never really mattered because we knew already that PCs are more powerful. So it's just all about the fun you can have on the game. But this PC power Vs. Console power is at the point where it doesn't matter anymore because it's like saying the Sun is bigger than the moon; everybody knows which ones more superior now.

    The PS4 will last a very long time seeing that now we're getting awesome F2P games like PLANETSIDE 2 & BLACKLIGHT

    I think this gen they will max out its performance quicker than they previously have, but one reason this gen has been the longest lasting one was because it took the PS3 more time to get traction and they had to recoup the cost of that thing over a longer period of time. The PS4 they will start turning a profit on a lot quicker and if they stick with the x86 architecture then I could see a new system coming out in 6 years time with full backwards compatibility!

    I could see ms starting the next next gen early if these power differences don't work them selves out in ms favor. That is if they make a new box next gen and don't just bow out like zune.

    6-7 years, though I'm jumping to PC before this gen is over.

    I believe it will last for 6 years, but not 7 years.

    I think what we'll see this time around is kind of what Apple does now. We'll get PS4.5 or XBoneS in about 4-5 years. Both will have SS Drives, better ram and such. Maybe even 3D support and updated HDMI to 4K. I don't see an true PS5 until my kids can drive.

    I think 6-7 years, but personally I wouldn't mind a new system every 5 years if they are going to be as weak as PS4 and XO are in comparison to high end PC's.

    What is sad is that people $#@! about a console being too expensive at $400-600, but the DVR (and just the DVR) that I RENT from Verizon I pay $15/mo, which over the course of 5 years comes out to $900, and I don't even get to own the thing...I would gladly pay another $600 in 5 years to have a bad ass console, that is only like spending $10/mo which is like eating a meal out a month!

    10 Years with two years of extended support after the PS5(If Consoles remain as boxes)/PSTV (If it is integrated into Sony TVs) Comes out so that's 12 years for me

    I see where you are coming from. I would gladly pay for a super PS4 with the best GPU and 16GB RAM if they were expecting me to use it for 10 years.

    I say about 7 with some extended support even after PS5 launches. Sony always supports their previous consoles for quite awhile.

    I think another 7 years.... Next time I'm expecting a PS3 $999 price tag!!

    And btw Americans that was like $800 in your money 7 years ago, my mum almost cracked it at me back in the day she said I could buy a new computer or a $#@!box car with that money!!

    EB Games almost pulled PS3 gear from its stores because for 2 years it sat their collecting dust and wasn't selling.

    7-8 seems pretty reasonable. The OP is right, Consoles will never be as powerful as PC's, because they go obsolete every 2 weeks. I genuinely dont think this is going to be the last generation of console games. PS3 is leading the 360 currently in worldwide sales at around 80 million. I think the PS4 and XB1 will do slightly less, or slightly more, by a margin of 10-15 or so million. Then well have the final generation of home consoles end in about 15 years, at which point i do think everything will be universal. Tv's and tablets and phones and all that will literally be the consoles. It wouldnt surprise me at all if i could download uncharted 3, and halo 4 on the same device in 15 years because both MS and Sony are no longer considering home consoles a viable product.

    You get to a point you cdan't do much more with the limited power of the console you wont be saying that. Plus considering the consoles seem to gauge what the developers actually do in the games they make (DESPITE all that obvious power the PCs have over the consoles) such arguement are null from the root. This new gen will last as long as this gen

    My guess is it might be even less, so I'm going for 6 years this time and it could even be less, there's too much competition lately and is not against consoles but tablets and mobile gaming.

    I'd say this gen will max out fairly quickly. the PS4 gen will probably last ~6 years, though i imagine there will be support for at least 8 to 10 years.

    x86 architecture could help the PS4 in that regard as dropping the quality to facilitate steady FPS could amount to something PC-esque with a simple on/off settings system.

    the consoles have plateaued in the past few years.
    for instance:

    this image shows the jump up between gens. what can you add to the last one to make it more human shaped? not much. we've pretty much gotten to a point where gains simply amount to dressing.

    As an example, the differences might amount to nothing more than one console running HBAO and its predecessor running SSAO.

    that's generally of course. you can always do more on powerful hardware

    day i officially stop gaming if that ever happens. Can't stand the 'fad' currently engulfing the smartphone space.

    Can't stand people who purchase day one smartphones either, when they themselves have the current model that's only 6 months old.

    7 to 8 years is reasonable before the next big boost in consoles.
