I have never once thought or been worried that console gaming is going to die...god know where all these tabloid bullshiz news site get there sources many millions does cod sell each year? many did GTA 5 sell? Making billions within a few days of a game going on sale does not say to me that people are not buying games anymore...the biggest trolls on this planet are the biggest tabloid scare mongers...they jus need get laid and stop thinking of bullshiz stuff to throw our way...just another way to suck the masses into a load of crap false propaganda....go on ur games, eat with ur family...nothings changed...and very much doubt it will do for years and years to come....blah blah blah
