Would love for this to happen, sadly it never will.

The more I read this (more importantly, if it's true), the more I think that Pastebin article writer's wrath and berating the PS4 seems justified
Console generations are likely to become longer, not shorter. It's also likely that we'll see some type of OnLive service introduced for these next gen consoles, not the following systems.
Funny thing about that pastebin rumor is that it matches some details of more recent rumors such as the 24/7 connectivity of Durango or how most developers will receive PS4 dev kits by the end of this year. For a rumor that sounds like such rubbish, it's odd how he's gotten at least 4 specific details correct.

Which is... not good for a console. Sony and Microsoft have to make a decision very soon - if the decision wasn't already made - and it's hard to tell how the 28nm yields will be in 2013. 32nm should be an option, though.
Was it 2002? Sorry, I thought it was introduced in 2004.
I still expect them to use 28nm, otherwise these systems will be even more disappointing.
