Weekly Webcomic Wrapup is opening an Xbox One

S. Prell, @SamPrell

The Xbox One launch has come and gone, and here we stand with our feet at the edge of a new generation. More than one million people have picked up Microsoft's successor to the 360, and we're bound to see more and more number-crunching, more statistics, and more banner-waving from all sides now that both the PS4 and Xbox One are out in the wild.

I asked this as part of a joke in an article earlier today, but now I'm genuinely curious: since all of the major players (Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo) have released their newest systems, does that mean that we can stop referring to them as "next-gen" consoles? These new machines overlap support-wise with the previous generation - Sony and Microsoft moreso than Nintendo - but is that reason enough to continue calling the current toy a "next-gen" one? Tell me your thoughts on gaming's generations in the comments below; after you've checked out this week's selection of comics, of course.

Oh yeah, and Doctor Who turned 50 this weekend! Ooo WEEE OOOOOO ...
