An interesting topic this week is the subject of the possibility of an open gaming platform, which was brought up by an exec at EA saying what each of us gamers with limited income have thought at least once in our lives–"Why can't there be just one console to buy?" The idea of purchasing a Wii, 360, and a PS3 makes many gamer's wallets shudder with horror, even in the hardcore contingent.
The Weekend Gamer higlights two interesting articles in the past two days–one that suggests that an open gaming platform is inevitable, and one that argues against the probability of it ever happening. He says, "I'd like you to read the arguments and then weigh in on two topics-do you think going to one unified gaming platform is a good idea in principle, and then do you think it will happen? Hit the jump to find the links and read portions of both article, then post your comments."
