Is the Casual Market Driving the Consoles to "Extinction"? Absolutely Not

Second Story Gamer writes:
"Today, on ClickZ, writer Kevin Carney has caused some disturbance in the gaming market by proclaiming that the "consoles are facing extinction" because of the casual market and the lack of innovation in the current consoles. In fact, he goes so far as to say that this generation was a "giant leap backwards".

Well, first of all, I have a problem with that statement. How could anyone in their right mind call this generation of consoles a "leap backwards"? The era of HD graphics (for the PS3 and Xbox 360) was thrust upon us by this generation which was innovation in itself. Also, this generation has brought about many innovative input devices, the most innovative being Nintendo's Wiimote (and the least being Sony's SixAxis). And on top of that, Xbox Live has created a better experience than ever seen before, one that will once again be improved when the New Xbox Experience launches."
