The State of Gaming In 2030

AtomiQon writes, "On Monday, the US National Intelligence Council released “Alternative Worlds”, a collection of possible realities, both pessimistic and optimistic, for the United States and the rest of the world in the year 2030.

Without going into too much political detail, the scope in which the world platform for politics and power balance is proposed to change in a little over 17 years got me to thinking about what the state of gaming could potentially look like in 2030. Below is a release of the “Alternative Worlds” article, but with an AtomiQon twist. Be prepared for sad truths, startling upsets, and a healthy dose of satire…"

I wonder how far he had to reach up his @$$ to pull this out lol ;P

I really hope everything isn't cloud based though and therefore there aren't any consoles.

I like having something I know is going to last and be supported for a certain period of time. That's why I personally don't game on PCs. I have nothing against it, I'd love to. But the thought of having to upgrade my graphics card, etc. just seems like too much effort. We all know video games are for lazy people so let's keep it that way for the people like me eh :P

Besides, competition's good for the industry.

I thought this was a serious article at first. Evidently it was just an unsuccessful attempt at being funny. *yawn*

Until we have 1 Gbps Internet connection in every household at low cost cloud gaming will not be pheasible alternative to consoles.

Yes and people forget that as games evolve, the internet must as well.

Pretty much games evolve much quicker than the internet, unless we somehow have super power wireless available for everyone.

Reminds me of an updated Fallout 3...
