    I'd rather people be calling it next gen instead of complaining about how we already need new consoles. That's coming in two years tops though. Just like every gen.

    Ps4/XBONE = 8th gen consoles

    Ps3/360 = 7th gen consoles

    No current, no next, just accurate terms to describe each console and avoid upsetting some poor sensitive souls somewhere..

    Imho, the moment a console is released it becomes the current gen system and the console that it replaced becomes last gen. Next gen is for the consoles that are coming out next. Plain and simple. Never understood why that seams so difficult a concept really. O_o

    Just like when a new iPhone/Galaxy/Nexus or ANY product releases. The one replaced becomes the last model and the new one is the current model and the one coming in the future is the next model... Just because older versions are still being supported doesn't make it the current model. Just means that its still being supported.

    PCs are very much like Air Conditioners.
    They both become utterly useless once you start to open up Windows....

    I see some people get overly bothered by what others may refer it to as. The thing is - i'll call it whatever i please. It doesn't friggin matter. This is not official terminolgy, more just internet speak. So it doesn't matter in the least what somebody calls it, as long as the purport is clear.

    We should all just call the PS3/360 gen "tomatoes" and the PS4/X1" gen "tomatos".

    There.

    We're in transitional gen or cross-over, or....or....haha the thing is that PS3 / X360 are still active consoles being supported by both companies. There are more people with PS3 / X360 than there are those with PS4 / XONE.

    So....what current gen is, is different for a lot of people.
