10 Next-Gen Predictions

You know, we may have just started our new generation. But, there's always speculation. And, with the case of any speculation, come predictions. Let us divulge on some next-gen prognostications regarding the industry. As well as where we might be headed in the next five to six years (or ten, if you're Sony).

We'll follow a general "likelihood" scale to determine the chances of these events occurring. The choices are listed below from least to most likely:

-Fairly unlikely

-Moderately likely

-Definite possibility

-Indefinite

Out of all of their predictions, I see two possibilities:

MS will buy a major studio (Capcom, Mistwalker). There's a precedent for that.

FFXIII will be multi-platform. That's assuming, of course, that PS3 sales don't meet expectations. Otherwise, Sony keeps that particular exclusive.

The others range from "very unlikely" to "maybe" at best.

capcom?
dude stop using drugs!
capcom is doing great on all consoles why would they wanna be part of 1 company and make games for only 1 console?
that would be crazy!

Dukester1013777d ago

If Microsoft offers them a buyout plan that is worth a lot more than you can dream, and promises that capcom will make more than what they're currently making- then a buy is not hard to foresee.

Any company is capable of buying another- it's all about money, and how well you convince the other, smaller weaker company to succumb to your needs

vertigun3777d ago

anego, you're a sad little boy.

my prediction:
in ten years, games will be so boring, the hole industry collapses and all the children can go play outside again. it has been going on for 5 years now, games getting easier and easier, they're all the same boring crap produced by people who have $old their soul to the devil.
it's a sad, sad world we live in.
i say drop all this nonsense, back to 16 bit.

Anego Montoya FTMFW3777d ago

THAT`S WHY THE IDEA OF LITTLE BIG PLANET IS SO IMPORTANT.
AND PLAYING ONLINE W/ ACTUAL PEOPLE ISN`T GETTING ANY EASIER

Anego Montoya FTMFW3777d ago (Edited 3777d ago )

I`M NOT LITTLE I`M VERY MUCH A MAN.
AND GIVE IT UP W/ THE SELLIN YOUR SOUL TO THE DEVIL STUFF.

KEEP THAT FOR YOUR SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASSES.
1 ON 1 CLASSES?............ MAYBE THAT`S WHY YOUR SO ANGRY

for kids to play outside. you have to wear a helmet and knee pads just to play tag nowadays. no dodgeball in gym. we've wussafied the kids too much. rather have them own every gaming console by the age of 5, grow up anti social, and kill random people in a fit of rage by age 18.

SmokeyMcBear3777d ago

seriously, i heard they banned TAG in some schools, what no red rover, kids these days.

Oh and I just got your name Anego... ha

my name is anego montoya... you killed my father... prepare to die

princess bride is one the greatest movies, i cmon, it has andre the giant

003777d ago

quite ironic that your posting on a GAMEING forum.

Grown Folks Talk3776d ago

i went outside and played every day. that was the first thing i wanted to do after school. even the crappy times when my mom would say "just out front" i still went out. and i had systems back then, but i had to earn or buy them myself. they just didn't buy me everything that came out. i know how to interact with people outside of my family. i know what a playground or a park looks like. i don't know how old you are, but i just turned 31. how many stabbings and shootings did you have when you were in junior high and high school? we didn't have any because kids weren't so struggling then. every other day you have problems in school now because you have a bunch of spoiled, shielded, over protected, whiny little kids who never see another child outside of the hours they're at school unless they have siblings. can't spank em, can't yell at em, but when they blow somebody up, it's your fault. anybody wanna play some games now? = }

Wow, it's great that people can see the future. No really why do some people think they're God and know what is going to happen without any facts whatsoever.

Please, just go in peace and live your life.
