the next gen console is here - tablets and smartphones. that's where all the focus is right now.
I just found out that Red Eagle just tried to kickstart a TSG based on Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series (just before he died he gave the company a good tongue lashing after not paying their artists). It failed miserably. They chose to make the game "a surprise".
Regardless, with the economy the way it is running a loss leader like the first two years of a console is not a smart investment. Nintendo's Wii U is a surprise hit (to most of us). Their ability to market old technology has been a huge cost saver. They now have something on the market akin to the XBox and people are snatching it up in droves this Christmas.
