"Waiting to buy a PlayStation 4 or an Xbox 720? You may be waiting a while, according to an industry analyst"
A Wii with added HD ability does not put it on equal footing power-wise with the 360 and PS3.
It'll make the games look alot better but like you said 360/ps3 are still miles ahead.
Thanks for the Pachter warning, I almost clicked the vid, and since it's against my religion, I usually avoid articles with his name in the headline or first paragraph. In case your wondering, my religion is... "Common Sense." By the way, 2014 for the new consoles is my prediction. I would say 2013, but 2013 sounds like a cursed time to release a console for some reason.
Speaking specifically on games, it is a great time to be a gamer. PS3 - God of War III and Heavy Rain are first day purchases. 2010 and beyond - with adequate firmware updates, I could see the next gen consoles coming out around late 2012.
