Of course that would be a best case scenario, but most of what we get will be ports. I have no doubt that anything based on the 6670 will work great in a console when it comes out, its the games 1 or 2 years after the 720 is released that I am wondering about.

It could very well be that they want to go back to releasing a new system more often then once every 8 or 9 years though.
