Do you think they should maybe stop calling them "next-generation consoles" at some point, now that they've been current for a couple of years?
And by this point, it's genuinely confusing. Is he talking about the consoles that have been around for about four years now?
Or, given that this is a game in pre-production, is he talking about consoles that might be released in three years or so? There's been a rumor or two about Sony and Microsoft maybe already talking to developers, so that's not totally ridculous. Three years would be a somewhat long development time for many developers, but positively speedy by Blizzard standards.
Still, yeah, I'm going with simple wildly-inappropriate usage of "next-gen". It stopped being the next generation of consoles and became the current generation when the PS3 launched in November 2006. Words mean things.
