But really, I agree. I think that the pre-development can/should start a few years before the release of the hardware. Maybe the developers need to build a new engine or developing tools..etc.
So, Square Enix starting a team of programming now still fits in with the whole, 3+ years left on current gen idea.

How can you program a game without knowing what that console can even do, makes no sense.

And not a single game that will showcase its capabilities until new consoles arrive

No one cares that you can run Counter Strike Source at 500+ frames per second.

They can speculate and build machines with hardware that they think will be equal to that console.

Ex:

Quote:
Story is that the XDK is using the Power Mac dual 2.0GHz configuration with 512 MB of system memory and an ATI X800 graphics card.

We were able to confirm with our own sources that this is indeed the current XDK game developers are using to develop Xbox 360 games, which uses the Power Mac G5 chassis forged of anodized aluminum.

iirc they've never said the next gen consoles won't be soon, just that the current gen consoles will have support for 10 years, clever wording, eh?

If the trend follows as per usual, PCs will be mostly equal, a tad better maybe, for a year.

Then they own.

Scratch their balls and daydream about better graphics?

New consoles are at least 3 years away. Being realistic, maybe more than that.

Both Sony and MS have said that the current consoles are roughly mid-lifecycle.

So expect to see DX9 stick around at least another 4 to 5 years.
The PS2 is only end-life cycle now, just because the current consoles will still be supported, it doesn't mean the newer ones won't come out.

Sony, MS and Nintendo have definitely started developing the next-gen consoles already, we just don't hear about them.
