As the new gaming consoles (PS4, XBOX 1) become more popular and common to see in your friends’ living rooms, where will console entertainment go from here? Nintendo is already planning the release of its new console next year, Steam has created its own brand of PC gaming devices, and virtual reality is slowly becoming more of a marketable product. Yet, can classic companies like Microsoft, Sony, even Apple, manage to compete and adapt with new innovations to gaming. Or will the next Sony device be an upgraded console with stronger hardware? Has gaming reached its technological peak and are we forever doomed to a future of CPU driven console devices, which lack interactive innovation. Or could we see Netflix on the next Microsoft device being broadcast as a hologram right in your room. Could we see a future of virtual reality devices, which take gamers into the actual game. Where do gaming consoles go from here?
Its important that the writter discusses what consoles can do over PCs. Nintendo has local play, sony and microsoft have perifferals that change the way people can play. – Cojo7 years ago
