The Console Is Dead, Long Live The Console

Spend your time online consuming various gaming news stories and you will find a common theme: more and more analysts seem to be somewhat prematurely predicting the demise of the games console.

The PC Master Race sit back and smile smugly, grabbing yet another great deal on Steam with the freedom to mod every inch of it, while Playstation and Xbox owners fiercely defend their console of choice and debate the mighty PS4 selling 7 million units, against the slightly better console-exclusive library on Xbox One. But it appears that we are all missing the point: over 12 million consoles with a limited selection of games have now been sold. Yet we are still constantly being told that the console market is dying.

Who ever thinks consoles are dying its an idiot. You thinks companies like ms and sony will invest billions on a product that its dying? The consoles will die the day the games stop. And I dont see that happening any time soon, both are investing billions in making more games. Long live both main consoles and pc gaming, we all win as gamers.
