New consoles have been tricky to develop for ever since the PS2 due to their proprietary CPUs and instruction architectures. The Xbone and PS4 will use x86 which is very similar to what PC's have been running for decades. This will make the learning curve for developers much easier and allow them to utilize more of each console's capabilities right out of the gate. The PS4 will be as developer-friendly as the PS1 was. It will also make cross-platform and PC ports a lot easier to handle.
Both Sony and MS are still pushing to support current-gen consoles until at least 2015, so don't throw them out just yet as there's still a lot of life left to be had (I'll never get rid of my 360 because of Red Dead; it's a shame it was never ported to PC.)
Damn it's getting close...only 3 weeks to go!
