I would hope we don't see new consoles until 2020 at the earliest. The only exception is Nintendo, which I personally don't think they need a new console at this time, just more first party titles.
Brah no programmer will opt to "continuing to maximize the current hardware" over getting fresh more powerful easy to code hardware. Those talking points are pseudo marketing nonsense. Especially if they say with x86
These consoles are relatively weaker than what we would have gotten with high wattage, loud, dedicated GPU consoles. There needs to be quicker turnover because in 3-4 years it will be possible to match or beat the power of these consoles at a $300 price point. Which leaves Sony and MS open to Apple/Amazon/Google stream boxing the to death
-The Xb1 is waaaay more powerful than the 360. Plus the 360 was built at a different time when the market was much different. Plus I don't blame MS and Sony for going with APUs, losing 80-100 per console would be death in this current climate. But don't make me wait another 7-8 years for another conservative power boost.
If these console were running Titans and MS and Sony were saying, check us again in 2020. Then Ok. But that's not the case
