I think we should call the 7th gen "last gen" when all the major consoles come out. Aka, when both the Playstation 4 and Xbox One are out. Technically, the 8th gen started with the Nintendo 3DS, but I wouldn't call the games in 2011 next-gen.

@drekula2: I'd like to imagine that is what most people will be doing when PS4 & Xbone come out.

On Wikipedia they list the PSVita & 3DS as a generation eight handheld which I guess makes sense.

I don't like the Xbox One or the Wii-U particularly, but it would be totally biased to just say the next-gen starts as soon as PS4 comes out. So to be fair, the next gen (for me) starts when Xbox One comes out. Even though I'm not getting it.

It's kind of weird to think about, but the 8th generation has been here for a year in the Wii U. But it'll only really take off with the PS4 and XBox One.

yes the 8th gen TECHNICALLY started in 2011-2012, but many of the defining games of the console gen came well after that point. I think after the Xbox One comes out there will only be a handful of games that are 7thgen only.
