Why the first Next-Gen games will be artificially throttled

onPause writes:

When a new console cycle approaches we always seem to have this weird overlap between current and next-gen hardware that hinders ‘true’ next generation games’ potential at the launch of new hardware. What I mean by that is; there are over 70 million Xbox 360 consoles in the world as well as just about the same amount of PlayStation 3′s that developers will need to make games for to be profitable. (Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, PS4, Ubisoft, Watch Dogs, Xbox One)
