Metal Gear Solid: Social Ops developer GREE delivered the keynote address at this year’s Tokyo Games Show, along with the message that the lines between PCs and smartphones are blurring, before laying out its vision of the industry’s future.
And where will all the tech come from if the PC format disappears lol. Its not like console makers will invest billions into that sort of research and even if they did the end result wont be as good as the that becomes available due to the constant evolving PC industry.
MGS Social Ops dev: ‘PC format will disappear, merge with smartphone’ Smartphones will disappear before the PC.
What he means is that one day cloud gaming will merge PC games into the Smartphone market. So easy to misunderstand people with other languages these days. Doesn't mean PC will disolve though as ALL cloud platforms will exist on the PC while some will be exclusive to other devices in the future. Still I believe consoles with discs will exist for another long haul as well even after Cloud gaming exists, because A large portion do not like DRM and no access to their files.
The dumbest shit I have heard yet.
I agree, it's so dumb that I dare not read the article at the risk of lowering my iq by reading it.
What is the developers address? I want to send him a bitch slap through the mail.
That made my day.
if pc dies .... there wont be a next gen for consoles... where do you think consoles get there graphics chips from ? pc graphics makers
i think pc and tablet will merge for sure with or without the sucess of windows 8 if windows 8 fails thats mean that all the future title will be focused on linux with possiblity that google make a pc OS based on the android in that way it will merge and even the windows 8 sucessed the merge will come anyway.... so i agress maybe the specifaction of each device will differ but it will all share the same OS
I honestly think us PC gamers are too damn stubborn to let something like this happen.
in japan maybe in the us, europe and the rest of the world pc gaming is WAY bigger than ps3/360 combined! NEVER going to happen
Since PC's are used for so many other things besides games, gaming devs are not going to just ignore the huge player base available. Like anything else, if there is money to make companies will be there.
If that happens, then sales will decline. They hit a niche smartphone market with crummy half arsed games. These people will toss money at anything as long as its not more than 10 dollars. Smartphones take over, so long AAA games, and so long anything more than 10 dollars. 60 dollar (40 dollars for Vita) games will disappear, but so will the quality that makes them worth higher prices. Honestly ever since this stupid casual crowd has taken over everything is going backwards.....look at our high end tablet that can't even compete with a 500 dollar laptop at all....look at our crummy game that is groundbreaking compared to the trash next to it in the app store.....ugh.
what dumb ass idiots wrote this?
Oh, God...another one of those dumb developer comments. Funny he didn't include traditional consoles in his "this platform is dying" argument. As long the game developers themselves are still using the PC to write up their game codes, draw textures, debugging codes - i.e. doing all this with smartphones- then there would still be PC gamers and their machines.
Second dumbest sh!t I heard/read this week.... So far... THE IDIOTS!... THE IDIOTS ARE COMING!...
Pc games wont die as al say ..i hope oly valve wil make a change in pc gaming soon...
Call me when they can stick a 690 in a tablet and I'm sold.
PCs absolutely will die in the sense that they won't be in the average persons home. For the most part, smartphones and tablets are already the new personal computer.
