Despite growing competition from the likes cloud and PC gaming, Id co-founder John Carmack believes that dedicated consoles will still remain very much part of the industry.
And the best part is he can blend into a crowd and be virtually anonymous. (I know of him from working at Quakecon and it has always been his speeches about the industry that really gets the masses to the main stage each year.)
Well if this gen is anything to go by then yeah expect atleast a 10 year gen.
this is why we shud wait til 2015 to launch new consoles and make them as beasty as posible, im willing to pay upper to $600 once its worth it.
you may be willing to pay up to $600 if the console is worth it, but guess you werent on this site when the ps3 launched at that price. people here were comparing the ps3 to the xbox 360 which was like half the price <probably the entry level one but still>. they were saying why pay double the price when they will be getting the same multiplat games on both systems. im sure parents who knew nothing about consoles were buying the x360 coz it was cheaper and keep in mind, at launch, multiplat games were running better on x360. this lead to the ps3 having a poor start. then when sony decided to remove things from the ps3 to make it cheaper, people whined. example <backward compatibility being removed>
well me personaly ive noticed that people are really stupid and microsoft showed how they could advance people @ their own rate. ie on the xbox ps3 had frum begining, fb,twitter,youtube all on ps3 frum beginig people complained that its not needed for a game first machine but look @ the xbox now.

RAGE stunk on consoles and it's PC version was lackluster at best. You have ruined your catalog, please STFU.
RAGE is 1 of the most fun and solid shooters on consoles running at 60fps while having 1 of the best graphics yet. The gameplay is great, feels great/the world is huge and there is a huge variety in things to do, the racing is awesome. I simply had a great time on Nightmare difficulty. An awesome game and a shame it didn't sell better. It was just the delusional PC Elitist that hated on Id for not making the game exclusive on PC. Eveybody who didn't play it should check it out unbiased by the opinions of bloated PC Elitist.
