I came from the Atari 2600 era. The new systems from that point forward were marginal improvements on their predecessors until the Playstation/N64/Saturn era. That was a sea change in video gaming. The PS2/Gamecube/Xbox era was another vast leap forward, but after that, visuals took a back seat to online gaming and all the other bells and whistles of the PS3/Wii/Xbox 360 era. I look at the screen shot comparisons between the PS3 & the PS4 and while they're improved, they aren't THAT improved. I'll happily keep playing on my PS3 for a few more years...
