    Welcome to the game industry.

    The last time someone tried this was Sega Saturn. You see how well that turned out.

    It's normal for a new console to be announced more than a year in advance. This gives the distributors and retailers time to figure out how to lay out the new product and let them know they need to make room for it by removing some of the current generation product.

    So people don't buy an old one then complain that they did not know the new one was coming out in a year.

    To create Hype, to try and steal Sonys PS5 thunder. To get people talking about Project Scarlett. To encourage softcos/developers to start focusing on the future.
