Very true. Newer doesn't always mean higher performance if you're dealing with different tiers. If you buy the top-tier graphics card right now, a couple of years down the line it will still be outperforming baseline $30 cards, even if they're "newer."

Still, I feel like this stuff is worth pointing out, just for public education. Until very recently we didn't have different tiers of console in the same generation. Most people who've grown up with gaming consoles probably expect newer models to be more potent across the board, because they always used to be.
