The Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 lasted us for eight years and seven years respectively. To this day they still run the latest games with pretty good results. Sure, it would be nice to have an upgrade but every last frame was being squeezed out of those consoles and they worked! Now we have had the so called ‘next generation’ of consoles for a while and there is a lot of stuff floating around about how the hardware is insufficient, the Xbox One in particular. Can these consoles last for another eight years? Or will the consumer have to spend even more on something that actually works?
