A typical console lifespan is 3+ years. If Sony came out with a PS3 anytime soon, it would alienate all the PS2 owners, **** off the developers, and hurt the console market as a whole. Who would want to spend the money on a next gen console and spend hundreds of dollars on games only to have to do it again a year later? It would hurt sales majorly of all consoles in the future especially hurting developers of games. Nope, Sony has to ride out the PS2 for at least another year, and then for them to provide something noticably better than the Xbox would be cost to much, making either the system to high priced, or not giving gamers any real reason to buy a PS3 if they can't get something much better. So you can feel secure the Xbox will reign for at least two years as king of consoles. I do expect though the life span of a console to get shorter an shorter as time goes on however.
