I think 4 gigs is enough for a console. Keep in mind that consoles use memory more efficiently than PCs. 4 gigs of shared memory means 2 gigs for sysem and 2 gigs for video. Also, I highly doubt that next-gen games will use 4096x4096 textures so you don't need that much memory. I expect that the new standard for console games will be 1080p, but at 30 FPS with little to no AA.

Yeah. I think those are significant enough improvements to change the quality of games on the console at this time. No one ever really thought(hopefully) that they'd be putting Core i5s with 16GB of RAM in them.

More worrying is the projected life of the console. 10 years with specs stuck at that level means they're starting behind the average gaming PC and banking on a decade of success at that level.
