IGN: Will Facebook Kill Consoles?

If you're one of the 300 million people who use Facebook, you've probably noticed the massive explosion of games on the site. It seems like there's a new game introduced at least every week, if not every day. The most popular games, like Pet Society, Farmville and Mafia Wars, have millions of active players who are dedicated to logging time in these games every day. But most of these players would not consider themselves "gamers."

The story is too old to be commented.

Are they on Crack 8/
What the hell happened to IGN.

edit:"The traditional game publishers are like the dinosaurs about to be hit by a comet," says de Halleaux, who says he thinks there will not be a next generation of consoles. "They will have to adapt and change in order to survive."

Now this Guy is definitely on something. @[email protected]

applicable to those only if they play Tetris on consoles. Facebook is faaaar from copying AAA games or any motion control games. Facebook can't even handle their chat system properly... games that too multiplayer ones are going to be really hard to implement.

not just ignorant, IGN is full of fools! who ever wrote this article, should just quit trying to be a gaming journalist and go sell popcorns!

Please shut down...your site is a mockery of its former glory.

Face book has been on the ps3 since its inception (web browser), only integration has been implemented.

Do us all a favor, Fire the whole staff...hire a bunch of monkeys...I'm sure It will pose a better experience that your half arsed attempts lately.

kingdavid3010d ago

Whats implementation of facebook on ps3 got to do with anything?

Either way, this article is stupid. Theyre indirect markets..

Miniclip or other flash sites have been around for years..

Mista T3010d ago (Edited 3010d ago )

ridiculous, ludicrous, you name it

but it's from the PC staff at IGN, figures

It's like a monkey giving it's opinion on politics, who cares

(no hate toward pc people, I'm cool with you guys)
