From CVG: Bold claims from Digital marketing company, which says there's no innovation on consoles.... The rise of casual gaming will see games consoles go "extinct", boldly claims digital marketing company ClickZ.
that what I've been saying for months if the casual market gives more money than the hardcore one so,why devlope expensive,nextgen,hardcore games do some crappy casual stuff with crappy production values and stick a 50$ price tag on it and there you go,sell like 5 to 10 millions nintendo I guess if that happen,it is because of YOU why nintendo why
Developers still have a passion to do the type of games us core gamers like. The only ones pushing casual nonsense are the publishers. That's why you have Dan Houser saying "fcck casual gaming." I think they can both coexist harmoniously.
i guess its innovative then to play mini-games.
I hate casuals from this hardcore stand point.
can co-exist with hardcore games but in no way kill hardcore games. Think of it this way. If casual games were to kill off hardcore games than there will be a lot less gamers around. 17m (PS3) + 22m (360) = 39m less gamers. Which is more than the Wii has sold so far. Granted I am sure that there would be a percentage of those that would get a Wii for the sake of playing some kind of game. The others would either game on a PC or just find some other form of entertainment.
Casual gamers have always outnumber hardcore gamers...mainly because there are very few requirements to qualify as a casual gamer. While I believe their are more casual gamers than hardcore ones now thanks to the Wii, I don't think the hardcore gamers has declined at all. So, if anything the market has grown and consoles are stronger than they ever have been.
you will get casual and hardcore gamers. This article has no clue. I would much rather be on my 50 inch hd tv then my computer and not everything on the internet is free. you get a virus that is not free or it is until you got to fix it. which can cost more then a console. Try to be a lil more open minded. It's not all about the computer or it would have happened a long time ago. or you wouldn't see systems selling 20, 50, 100 million consoles. go to vgchartz and you will see that it's not dying but selling just fine. I think the wii has helped casuals go out and buy a system instead of playing uno on your computer. The introduction of wii will push 360 and ps3 to push the envolope, not only for hardcore but for casual gamers as well. this is the first time a console has seen a controller that moves your character with a whip of your hand.I don't think it comes down to grapphics it comes down to new ways u can play ur game. so of course it will sell good. Also i might add that alot of casual gamers may want more then what wii can offer and want a good game which both 360 and ps3 have to offer. which would turn someone usually not in to the gaming industry into a hardcore gamer.so it's a win win. I think that in the next year you will see alot of the people who bought the wii will go buy and upgrade to a 360 or ps3. horrible article I give it a 0. kinda hurting on bubbles. bubbles's please.
