Mobile is the future of gaming. Doubt it's ever going to just be stuck on touch screen games w/ the start of companies trying to shove in physical controls for mobile. Either the mobile hardware themselves become close enough to emulating PS4/X1 experiences (specially with diminishing return in graphics much so on a smaller screen) or the global infrastructure finally allows very good Cloud Gaming on devices like the VITA. Traditional console/hardware/pc would still exist but it will continue to slowly contract in the long run as "replacement device" become more capable. Can't wait for the Matrix/SAO/.Hack -the end all be all for gaming.
