I think Microsoft and Sony should save their money and everybody elses money, by releasing non-mandatory, upgraded 360's / PS3's with more RAM, to enable higher resolutions and better Anti-aliasing, filtering, draw distance etc. Instead of re-introducing Xbox 720's, or PS4's. The cost would be minimal and quite frankly, the CPU's and GPU's in these consoles are just fine for even the next 5+ years. Sony has figured out a way to bypass their Anti-aliasing + HDR combination issue (as found in Heavenly Sword, Killzone and basically every first party game, not to mention, 3rd party developers are starting to utilize these methods too), the 360 can pull off a low level of Tessellation, and the Processors in these systems are more than competent. At the most, overclock the CPU / GPU's for the upgraded consoles. Upping the RAM would make developers happy, the systems would be arms reach of the new Wii-U, and everything would be priced competitively with the Wii U, instead of having to shell out $600.00+ (You know the new PS4 would probably cost close to a grand again). This way, everything stays based off of current Tech but with more RAM. If they felt they really needed to, they could always bump the graphics chips up to current generation but something already used in PC's (to save cost in R&D, therefore making it more affordable to us).
