Many people are seriously overestimating the power of next-gen consoles. While they'll certainly be more powerful than current gen consoles, they'll still be several generations behind top-end PC hardware. Hopefully they'll have a lot more memory so we don't have to look at low-res textures all the time.

Really? I'll I've seen is rumors, does anyone really have a solid estimate of what or what not a next-gen system will do? From the rumors it would be able to 60 fps in many games with no sweat. But once again, rumors.

Now perhaps you have more insider info, I dunno.

Well, it all depends, right? You can build a time machine, go to 2027, bring back the fastest computer, and I can still write software today that it can't run at more than 30fps.

There is a trade-off between frames and graphics quality. Just because something runs at 30fps doesn't mean it's because the hardware is weak.

It's not about power, it's about how developers are prioritizing that power. If they're choosing high graphics fidelity and lots of crap going on it'll be 30fps. It isn't like there's some magic machine that can run anything you throw at it at 60fps. It's about developers deciding that they want to go at that frame rate and seeing how much crap it takes to get it pushed down there.
