The Death of Console Gaming

There’s a shift currently underway in the videogame industry, a shift that developers and publishers alike are watching descend on them like a village watching the slow approach of a lava flow. The game industry is changing and old business models that have served their purpose for the past decade have started to lose their appeal as prospectors coming down out of the mountains of mobile and browser based games with pockets full of gold and tell tales of untapped veins of revenue for those brave enough to take on the risks of the journey. However more than a few of these prospectors have disappeared into those mountains and their bones now serve as chin rests for cougars, lazily licking their chops in anticipation of the next fool to come stumbling into their lair waving a lazy port of a flash game for the Android marketplace. Metaphors aside, what does the current popularity and growth of mobile and browser based games mean to the existing console markets? (Casual games, Dev, Industry, Itzy Interactive, Mobile)

Fortunately I read the article before commenting. I fully agree with the author, I'm sure console gaming will keep going strong. Good read.
