"For us, it's not just about the launch date. It is about the start of the journey where the console will be improved and will be adapted and changed," Microsoft's Phil Harrison said at his Eurogamer Expo 2013 keynote.

That time frame is to be expected of game consoles, I think. It's not so much the hardware that changes dramatically as it is the software -- the platform holder's strategy. For as down as some of us are on the Xbox One right now, think back to how your opinions of this current generation's systems have changed over the years.
