10 Reasons Why The Next Generation Could Be The Last For Consoles

WC - We are finally coming to a close of the 7th generation of gaming consoles. It has been utterly fascinating to see unfold and for better or worse, it has certainly set trends going forward. We now have DLC, online passes, limited editions, digital distribution and even input options like motion controls and touch screens. (PS4, Wii U, Xbox One)

This article is riddled with PC bias. The disclaimer seems to be put there so that fans of consoles wouldn't attack the author but most of the examples cite the PC as being the better option and I laughed at "PC's don't have the same restrictions." PC invented the restrictions that consoles now employ, the only difference is that with the PC you can get around them. Anyway, this won't be the last generation of consoles so long as people are willing to buy consoles, and no amount of PC elitist wishful thinking is going to change that.

Console gamers buy games. If anything its PC gaming thats gonna die soon, those guys never buy games they pirate the most.

That's not completely accurate. Steam makes a lot of sales and good money. PC gamers are just far more picky, sometimes to their platform's detriment.

Trust me , Sony isn't dropping out of the console business any time soon. They are going to continue making the best games and consoles in the business. Everyone is always saying consoles are going to go extinct but Sony continues to make consoles relevant with the excitement stirred with the PS4 reveal.

It's because Sony will rule them all and no more fighting. I'm just kidding I want Nintendo and maybe Microsoft to exist...More games the better.
