"Alex from Chile Wack British Columbia. Okay I was thinking about the ubiquity of the term next Jin recently and it got me thinking. How long has that phrase has been used for? I wasn't paying too much attention to the gaming industry three around the original xbox and playstation two launches the first time I heard it was for the xbox three sixty was the term used before then if so for how long has it been around and I would say since the magazine called next drive say a playstation one definitely I remember specifically getting a budget and Nintendo sixty four pre release. Shit out of that magazine. I think unless I'm like memories that sounds right. A Tory Asli unreliable. But I'm just look it up Roku quick either definitely feels like a ninety five ninety four. It was yes magazine to me. I liked that magazine. Like it was very nice paper stock yes ask the thickness of the cover was very reassuring down. How straight up became next Gen later on? I don't remember interleaved in the rebrand. They might have. I don't know that was a future magazine for January. Ninety five the first issue okay to January two thousand two thousand probably well. I don't know that anybody ever. Nobody ever called the Super Nintendo next generation. Did they really not in that context. I mean I'm sure there was like it's the next generation Super Nintendo entertainment. Exactly yeah next generation of products from. Yeah the probably the idea of there being like cycles. New Councils on a cycle well wasn't really like rightly accepted at that point right. No no not really no. There were plenty of reports like around the launch of the Super Nintendo intendo or the announcement being like and it won't play the old games angry parents. I can't believe it now. In retrospect is kind of fucked up doesn't play proteins proteins. Maybe it's a little fucked up. It doesn't play the old games. I you know who knows if that maybe that men may not have been a trivial cost to put that hardware in wonder at that time anyway. Anyway yeah I I feel like that magazine. Genesis could play the old games. If you've got the power base Kim's right true cool yeah I got one for free. Wow God right. I forgot Christina. Worked for next year reaction man and Charles. Their Trent war was there. Anyway I think that that magazine gene coincided with the playstation and Saturn right releases and sixty four hundred. That was a big leap forward. That was even just like forget like console to console well that was just to a new block of consoles generation in design. So we're also moving to three D graphics. Ah fucking Shit this is mind blowing. That's our answer. That's a good one."
