He is right about David Cage. #5

The problem here is that the industry hasn't adapted because they've become too fat and obese to adapt to change. Don't take it from me. The numbers are all there to search out. All the big 3 have posted losses recently. Epic for instance had recently shutdown a newly-founded studio called Impossible Studios that were mostly made up of ex-Big Huge Games developers after six months. The studio behind Epic Mickey has closed down. Prospective developers who are hoping to get their id... #9.1.1

It's not so clear cut. For every boom, there's an inevitable glut of product, the market goes slack, demand lowers on the face of similar product and the bubble pops.

Remember the music fad in the early 2000s? That bubble burst, but the entire industry wasn't following that particular fad. They've jumped on the multi-player shooter fad and no-one is making money from it except COD or Halo. When that bubble bursts, it's going to drag everybody else along w... #8.1

The game industry crash is already here. Check out the various developers that currently reside in corporate landfills. Here's a list.

That's the thing man. The gaming consumer has changed. The casuals have migrated to smartphones and tablets while the core users have become increasingly disillusioned by the stale re-run games that seem to appear year-in, year-out and have moved over to PC. Even the PS4 has basically become a PC, as will the latest Microsoft console in order to grab back some of that audience.

Eventually, we'll just have cloud boxes with different sets of exclusives but with margina... #18.1

We'll wait and see. On the current networks that most people are on; cloud gaming doesn't seem to be an option. Sony/Gaikai said themselves that they would need to make the fastest, global network that's ever been created. Whether or not they are up to the task, we will find out soon enough. It's best to not take things at face value. You may end up disappointed. #10.2

The Gamecube in my opinion is probably the most underrated console of the sixth generation. #5.1

Nope. The Wii U isn't dead. The thing that people tend to forget is that you should never ever write off Nintendo. People did when the Nintendo Wii was released. They did when the DS was released. They did when the 3DS was released. The Wii U isn't meant to challenge Sony or Microsoft as they can't be direct competitors against conglomerates.

They are the only company of the big 3 who exclusively make games and hardware while the other 2 have various other busine... #16

Oh c'mon guys. Didn't Aliens:Colonial Marines teach you anything? You're all setting yourself up for a fall. #59

The games shown at E3? Oh boy. I think that Konami will show off their Fox Engine since they were conspicuous by their absence. They've actually not been around for most of this gen since most of their resources seem to be tied into making their own in-house engine.

While other companies have announced their own in-house engines for the next-gen like Epic with their latest Unreal iteration, Capcom with the Panca Rhei and Square-Enix with their Luminous Engine; I believe t... #1.1.1

The thing that I tried to do was to base my simple predictions on the various rumours that ranged from the absurd to the downright obvious with some concrete sources. I merely only wished to show that with some solid research; any gamer is better at gauging what to expect in the future than Pachter. I wish I was a little clearer on that part and I apologise profusely. I was incandescent with rage when I read Pachter's 240 fps comment that I lost my mind and failed to properly convey my di... #1.2

People are simple selfish beings who worship corporations instead of seeing the state of things because it's beyond their rationale. Intellectual discourse on the internet is impossible because people are not accountable for what they say. Not saying that people should post everything about themselves online but people can't and won't take responsibilities for the ideas that they wish to spread. They would rather stick with their echo chambers that they've become so well-accus... #2

If the demo is truly representative of the Wii U; there would have to be questions asked of why the other consoles/PC versions were so derivative.

I sincerely doubt the veracity of this rumour. However if it is true, it'll be bigger than the Mass Effect 3 scandal because a number of gamers unknowingly bought a derivative product and expected the demo footage to at least be representative of the product they were buying. #19

Hmm. On the subject of racism, I believe that it "could" end but I don't think it will. The issue with racism is that it's a fantasy since it's a belief that you're superior to someone while the difference is literally speaking skin deep.

Sexism will never end. Testosterone fuels males to be aggressive by nature and that puts women at a disadvantage. Men have power and they don't want women to have it because they already have it. People don'... #20

Once the multiplayer first person shooter bubble bursts; there will be a lot of pain. It's just a shame that most of the industry had decided to follow this formula. #7

Really? I haven't really seen many insults from the writer of this blog. Only some spirited debate from either side of the fence which is good. The blogs this month have been quite high-quality recently.

I hope it continues. #3.1.1

I slightly disagree on 10k Wii U flocking to buy Rayman Legends because it's not like Nintendo won't have titles out as well when September comes around. Would people flock to Rayman or a previously established franchise on the Wii U? Rayman was already a niche title and to release it during the September season is absolute madness to me.

Don't get me wrong. Rayman Legends looks great but it looked a lot better when there wasn't any other titles stealing the s... #5.1.1
