I know PS4 will be in my livingroom for more than a decade and I know it will be supported with good to great exclusive games all that time.

Nothing can compete with that just like nothing can compete with my PS3. Games games games....

at least 10 years.

The reason being that it's being produced at 28nm tech.

It will, eventually, make it to 14nm, and be price reduced, but what then?

The time-to-profit on 10nm tech will probably take 10 years in and of itself, given the cost of the fab tech at that scale. That means 10nm will be too expensive for console makers, for a good long while, and there will not be any price drops in sight when the price does make it to the $500-$600 dollar range -- sub-10nm tech may never happen, for financial reasons alone.

The "next gen" will have to be a smaller upgrade over the current gen, than ever before. It'll likely have to be on 14-20nm tech, as well, in order to be affordable. Will people buy such a minor, Wii U-styled, upgrade over the PS4 and XB1? I doubt it, given the way the Wii U is faring.

I have always liked physical copies of games rather than digital games

I don't know ... I'll guess at least 10 years. Don't ask me how I came to that rather arbitrary number, it was just a hunch
