Next-gen. Next-gen. Next-gen. Snore.

Ubisoft's Yves Guillemot is the latest video games boss to drop the "next-gen is happening sooner than you think" bomb. The executive told Gamasutra that the unveiling of the Wii U has seen Sony and Microsoft prepare quicker than expected.

“I think it’s sending the message that the new transition is going to happen – and we’re going to have new machines coming soon,” he said.

Sigh. Yup. More baseless speculation based on nothing at all. Sony's not putting out a new PlayStation for a good few years yet. Get used to the idea.
