'Bored gamers need fresh ideas'

"The current downturn in the sales of boxed games has been caused by boring content and no innovation.

That’s according to Ubisoft’s Alain Corre, who says the market is desperate for new ideas – and if it doesn’t get it, spending on video games will continue to fall.

Currently, the UK games market is down 33 per cent year-on-year.", writes MCVUK (Alain Corre, Culture, Industry)

I say that we need new consoles just as much as we need new ideas. The hardware's not getting any better.

It is supposed to get cheaper to make games during the end of the console cycle and therefore more devs should be willing to take risks and come up with new ideas, bringing out new expensive hardware isn't going to help anyone it just keeps devs playing it safe.
