Are PS4's Mega-Sales A Sign That This Is The Biggest Console Generation Ever?

Not a year goes by without predictions that the current console generation will be the last, that it will fall victim to upstarts like social and mobile gaming, or to fresh threats from its age old adversary, the PC, such as Valve’s attempts to move in on the living room space. But the arrival of three new home consoles within a year of each other provides plenty of reasons to be positive. The current-generation has been a long one, and I--like so many gamers--am very ready for new consoles

I don't know if it will be the biggest console generation, but it looks like it will be the biggest generation for PlayStation in a long time

The mighty PS2 might have something to say about the title of this article, but damn 1 million sales in a day in NA is nothing to scoff at. PS is definitely on the upswing and GT7 isn't even on the radar yet. That "game" will move mega millions.

The audience is definitely growing

Not just the audience, the whole industry is bigger than it ever was.

I hope so .

Anything that shows video games on an upward trend, am happy with.

camel_toad1551d ago

Oh video games are just a fad. Before you know it there will be no more consoles and people will just be playing checkers and twister.


chikane1551d ago

ZodTheRipper1551d ago

Evolution will take care of that.

BosSSyndrome1551d ago

Zod I dont think you know how evolution works.

imXify1551d ago

I think you mean "adaptation". And that has nothing to do with evolution.

Most powerful console ever made and Sony's 1st parties that shaped this gen for $400? Who wouldn't bite. Early buyers already got an early surprise with the Uncharted PS4 announcement. Stay tuned for the VGAs.

That's not something to brag about. Most powerful console ever made. Every new generation will say the same thing. It's expected to be more powerful than the generation before that's how technology works.

That said, PS4 is my console of choice simply for the exclusives can't wait to play infamous. My PC is for all the multiplats.

KingKelloggTheWH1551d ago

I hope so, I'd like to see more people get into gaming and have more diversity in the types of games made.

And some "analysts" were saying that consoles were going to become irrelevant... video game consoles will be here for a longer time than they thought.

Snookies121551d ago (Edited 1551d ago )

Yeah, of course it is. Just like anything out there, the longer the medium is around the more people it will attract. Back in the original Nintendo days, gamers were called nerds. Today, it's mainstream. Of course it will grow with each new generation. More and more people try out gaming and start to get into it as time goes on.

Just as movies were niche way back in the day, and records/record players were hard to come by, or telephones were rare to see... Things just get more popular over time. There's no denying that. If you're asking whether or not video games are nearing their decline, then no. They are still going, and I think it's one medium that will continue to keep going for many years to come.
