they are shooting for 10 years for the 720 cycle? Longer than the 360 is looking to be right now?
360 lifecycle will be ~10 years. It's 7 in a few months, maybe 8 before 720 released, and it'll survive a couple of years after that.

Sure once 720 comes out the early adopters will shift over, but they'll still be doing good sales on the 360. Those sales are all super profitable too, because they've paid off the R&D costs and aren't making a gross loss on the hardware.

The more I think about that 10 year claim, the more worthless it sounds. Firstly, they're going to hype this as being great value for money and step 1 of that is to tell people that their purchase will last. Also, as you say, there's a difference between how long the product life is and how long until the shiny new thing comes along. I think my local Bricks & Mortar still sells PS2 games.

4GB sounds very low, given the price of RAM. If PC games are going to be held up by console hardware, and they are, I'd like Next Gen to have better specs than a modest gaming PC does a year before it's released. I have 4GB now and I'm considering an upgrade.

They're not going to call it the 720 are they? That's just begging for Sony to come out with the Playstation 1080p and tell everyone that they've got Full HD.
