Why the Next Generation of Consoles Won’t be the Last – Part 1

From the article:

"There’s much talk from the gaming industry that the next generation gaming consoles will be the last. Many cite the rising costs of game development, the seemingly inexorable rise of free to play or ‘freemium’ gaming, and of the explosion of handheld gaming on smartphones, as the primary factors driving the demise of traditional gaming consoles. These are all valid arguments,but are they missing the point?" (Next-Gen, PS3, Xbox 360)

maybe if your a hardware lackey

if is wasnt for current gen/next gen consoles there would be little or no revenue full stop and AAA gaming wouldnt exist as we know it

development costs have shot up this gen and its the revenue gained from the huge user installed base of current gen consoles that PC gamer can continue to play AAA titles on their rigs

give them some respect and stop being a moronic hardware hore

I hope this won't be the last but sadly it may be true. You won't need consoles to deliver games in the near future. Smart TV and other devices will be able to do it also.
