I will give the xbox 360 maybe another 2 years. im pretty sure we will hear something about a new console in the works by then. i find my 360 to be more then a gaming console when people are over its either playing music or watching a movie are showing off a demo with some friends. its almost as good as a htpc it plays games, movies, music, i also like the fact that you can play music while playing a game.

With the amount of money put into the Xbox360 and the PS3, I don't see either of them being supplanted anytime soon. If I had to venture a guess, I'd say the current consoles are here to stay for at least another two to three years, maybe even four as I can't imagine Sony wanting to put out a new Playstation until the PS3 is somewhat profitable. As such, there's no pressure on Microsoft's part to try and "beat" Sony to the punch like it did with the 360.
