In spite of the tremendous bashing the PS3 has taken in the last few months, and the rabid comments of frustrated angry fans who spew bile on anyone who dares criticize their system, things are starting to look up for the system. The fact that a high-hype, high-profile game like Killzone 2 has not gotten crushed under the weight of questionable journalism is proof enough of that.
Of course, since the later stages of the "console war," which is a term both idiotic and laughable, are upon us, it may be time to wonder about what hardware may be offered within the next generation.
There is a bit of speculation that the next set of consoles could hit as early as 2011. This may seem a bit early, considering the 6 1/2 year gap between Playstations 2 and 3. However, the time between Xbox and 360 was a hair above 4 years, both released in November in 2001 and 2005, respectively. If trends continue, Microsoft may be churning out another full circle within the next couple of years.
