Which means any new console from platform holders who currently have an HD machine out will be coming in 2013 at the earliest, but 2014 is probably more likely, although we’re betting Microsoft isn’t looking to rush another console out the door considering how much it spent fixing the RROD kerfuffle. long story short, Nintendo may be looking at two years of unopposed dominance in the home console arena, but staring technological obsolescence in the face after two years. Doomed to repeat it indeed.
