The planets are aligning and 2013 will likely showcase new hardware from both Sony and Microsoft.
Eager to see the likes of PlayStation 4 and Xbox 720 breath life into the flagging games business, publishers are even openly discussing plans for new consoles.
But the final wave of games for the current generation will likely be a last hurrah. Both Rockstar and Kojima Productions, in particular, have rocked the industry with Grand Theft Auto V and Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes.
Adding to this the likes of BioShock Infinite, Hawken and The Last of Us, the industry is likely to end the current generation with triple-a sized fireworks.
