    I dont really get how can this generation consoles cost so much when they are closer to 7 years old. The previous generation was only out for like 4-5 years before this generation came, yet at like 7 year mark we still have no real info about the upcoming generation.

    I dont really care about console gaming and I only have a GameCube from the previous generations, but just wondering.
