Nah, the X360 is only two years in. Consoles have been running on five-year cycles for quite sometime. So it's probably got another two before they even announce the next-gen, and a third before the next-gen comes out.

The thing I like about computers is one of these scenarios:

-Hey a new game is coming out *looks at req. specs* aww I need 512MB more RAM and a GeForce 7600

-Guy goes out and buys just the RAM and the Video Card

**Xbox//Console scenario**

-Hey cool Halo3 is coming out!

-...Wait I need to spend how much to buy the new Xbox360??

Point is with Consoles you either buy the new system entirely or get stuck in the desolate wastelands of obsolete consoles

Computers can be gradually upgraded to suit certain games and situations or you can go all out and spend $1500 like I did...thats the joy and freedom in PC gaming.
But do a little math...assuming you need a high end video card, those puppies alone cost more than a typical console. Even if you get a mid-range card, that plus a RAM kit is probably going to run you upwards of the $400 it costs to buy an entire console.

The whole "PC upgrades are cheaper than consoles" argument is a total myth. Not to mention that I can buy all three consoles for the price of a decent, but not even top-of-the-line, gaming PC. If you actually look at the numbers without biasing it towards your personal preference, it's clear than console gaming is cheaper than PC gaming, by a lot.

Now the joy and freedom argument I can understand. I love my PC, and I enjoy tinkering with it. But that's a whole different reason to play with PCs.
