There's a lot of speculation about PS5 going around at the moment, with rumours pointing to a 2019 or 2020 release. Does anyone else feel like it's way too early to even consider a new generation at this point? The 360 and PS3 stuck around for around 7-8 years before their successors arrived, which was admittedly a much longer cycle than we've seen in the past, and we're barely at the 4 year mark in this generation with a previously unprecedented mid-generation refresh having only recently happened.
I can't help but feel like the generation has barely gotten started, so far. Longer development cycles and games costing more to make seems to have meant there's fewer and fewer big releases and what's there isn't often exclusive either. It seems the gaps are being filled with strong Indie titles and HD remasters/remakes otherwise. Sony seems to be leading the way at least with Uncharted, God of War, and so on, but it feels like with these titles hitting, the generation is only really now hitting its stride.
I feel like there's a few years of this generation left before we should even really be seeing a new generation. What do you think?
