Yup it only got discontinued recently. Console generations typically last between 8-12 years roughly. Just look at ps1 game boy gameboy advance.and.the psp as well. They all had extremely long lifespans.
W with that said the "next gen" a also seems to typically take around 5 years or more to develop.... So basically half the current gems life.
