What do you think? Is it too early to tell, or can we imagine just a bit?

Depends on how well the Xbox one performs in the 8th Generation of Videogames. The Xbox 360 has managed 78.2 million in worldwide sales. But that has been since November 17 2005. So buy the time Xbox One launches it will have been 8 years. The Xbox one may have a successor if it does well. Microsoft seems to have saved the Xbox one which appeared to be headed for retail Doom. So now we Shall see how it performs during the 8th Generation of Videogames.
So the answer is unknown until 5yrs - *yrs

I'm really not so sure, with cloud gaming really improving lately (especially the fact that we can play those games on any device with high settings) maybe we'll see one more gen and then pretty much cloud gaming will take over consoles.

If console gaming is still big in five years we will be talking about the XBOX One+. For console gaming to be big in five years there will still need to be a big gulf in price between a console and a good gaming computer.
There will eventualy be a maturity point in the big game experience and then, once hit, the hardware will standardize and become cheap. Everything needed to run something like HALO 8 might be no big deal for inexpensive computers in five years. There is also the WOW FACTOR to consider. The jump from XBOX to XBOX 360 was startling thanks to HD. The jump from XBOX 360 to XBOX ONE doesn't look nearly that great. So if they can't come up with a reason to get people to buy another console we might just see a series of upgraded editions of XBOX ONE.
Five years is a gigantic about of time in tech years. My guess is that we are seeing the last big deal launch of a game console....
and I wouldn't be suprised if I was wrong.... ;)
