    Not quite yet. Nintendo would be the only one we'd even come close to hearing from. Sony and Microsoft are banking on their systems lasting for a long time.

    It seems Microsoft is already planning theirs, since apparently they've moved one 360 game to whatever comes next.

    Yeah, Microsoft's already got something planned, as an "unannounced first party 360 sequel" is being developed for the next system already.

    Last I heard Nintendo is making no secrete they are developing a new system and want to be the first one out in the next generation but are stopping short of saying when that will be.

    Sony is saying the PS3 will last for 10 years. I think they plan on supporting it for that long but will have a new system out long before then sort of like how stuff is coming out for PS2.

    Microsoft is terrible at keeping secrets but excellent at denying things.

    Nintendo did file a patent last year on motion sensing technology in a portable game system. but that's portables. Next gen DS with tilt sensor maybe?

    Wonder what THAT could be :rolleyes: 

    If it IS Halo then just...well I'll just say that (SPOILERS): The ending for Halo 3 would have been INFINITELY better and more meaninful if the MC stayed dead.

    Will be something completely new. Nintendo has previously stated that they aren't following up the DS.

    yeah cause with the DS, if it failed, they didn't want it with the Gameboy name...

    but seeing that it's doing real great, i think the next gen portable will most likely be follow-up to the DS but with the Gameboy name to it.

    I keep wondering if Nintendo will separate the handheld segment more with another system? Something like bringing back the Game Boy moniker with a PSP-esque multimedia device, and using the DS for games still yet encourage and market it's non-gaming capabilities? I doubt they'll let people forget the whole Game Boy name and let it DIE!

    The Game Boy Pocket and later Color helped the company barely stay in the black during the N64 days thanks to games like Pokemon.

    Microsoft HAD planned a portable gaming system, but due to BIG legal issues with the contracted company it tanked BADLY. I don't think that will stop Microsoft and I think they will (or are) developing a portable gaming system that will include Zune like functionality and better-then-PSP graphics quality in a similar form factor. I'd suspect the games would come on flash based media, and the device would have an iPod-esque micro-portable HDD in it.

    Don't be surprised if some new company puts out the odd 16-bit handheld or something in the meantime.

    The PS4 will probably be out somewhere around 2010 I'd guess, Sony may expect the PS3 to last ten years, but a five year cycle for new Hardware is likely to make sure they stay on the top of the technology wave.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see a souped up Wii from Nintendo within two or three years. Its killing the other two systems in sales now, but eventually its going to falter, and the other two have the tech edge and versatility to last longer.

    Microsoft can try with a handheld, but I honestly doubt they'll be able to dethrone Nintendo in that area any more then Sony could. Almost 20 years of portable experience (yep 1989 was the first) makes Nintendo hard to beat when it comes to portable gaming.

    There is no way the ps4 will be out in two years. Sony needs the PS3 to last at least until 2012. And that's only a 5 year lifespan. I expect it to last longer then that.

    The N64 was my favorite! I had 20 + games. I don't like the direction the new systems are going in. All this fast action and constant spinning camera angles makes me dizzy literally. I do enjoy the DS though, and I like all the classic releases for the GBA. Marble Madness is driving me nuts though. good times, good times. I really want them to remake/re-release Maniac Masion.
