I agree. It really felt that way this fall when all the major titles hit. Out of all the stellar games to launch none of them completely floor me. Uncharted 3 was the one that really stood out. I take nothing away from the game, it was truly supreme. But I was so expecting the graphical leap that I seen between 1 and 2, and when it didn't happen I was a little disappointed. Uncharted was not the only game this fall that left me feeling this way by no means.

In my opinion anybody that thinks we won't see new consoles till 2014 are out of their minds. I don't think the market can stand to stagnate that long. If people are starting to feel as though this is as good as it gets this generation, what would people say 3yrs from now? Gimme my next gen hardware now!
