TLOU and GT6 says otherwise, this year many goods titles are still beign release on this gen, besides if PS4 were released last year probably will be use GDDR3 ram, so i glad they didn´t

Yes but a year earlier and I am not sure we get the same machines we get today. PS4 has 8GB of GDDR5 because they were able to wait and secure costs that worked for them..this year not last year. Had they announced in 2012 I am pretty sure PS4 would have been 4GB of RAM.

So? Specs will get better the longer they wait. Next year there will be GDDR6

I personally think the generation lasted just about the right length. Still great games coming for current gen and next gen feels significantly next gen.

I'm happy it lasted as long as it did

Ps3 still has heavy hitters playing.

Why would they have done that?

I can see why another console would, but ps3"is going strong as ever.
