@MegamanDX; has sent me this article about the horrible truth of the future of consoles:
It's over, Nintendo's finished, and so are Sony and Microsoft.
Dear god you have GOT to stop with this pessimism.
An entire Industry doesn't just die in overnight. It changes, evolves into something new. Maybe console gaming of the future won't be the exact same as console gaming of the present but it sure as hell won't die completely. This is no '83 Video Game crash and even that didn't kill the industry.
I'm tired of this. It isn't some horrible truth. It's just an article with quotes by so called 'experts'. It's an opinion piece and not fact.
You need to stop believing shit random people throw at you.
If consoles die, the entire gaming industry is gonna die. Simple as that.
What this means is that the consoles are not going to die but be replaced with social media games and online movies services and such....
I hate Facebook to the max...People vanish and die from going on there and the games on there also suck balls...
This only means that the indrustery is on a decline do to other factors that are out of control of the video game companys.....
@Neosquid; Believe me, MegamanDX is not a random person.He's a friend and a veteran from the TITG thread. Here's what he said about your responses:
"I did....they think it wont happen but I see it happing in 10 to 15 years,it will happen after the collapes of The Pokemon company in 18 years"
@MegamanDX; But there are still a ton of people that enjoy consoles.
@Ghetsis-Dennis; That's not my point, my point is that you shouldn't believe everything everyone says.
Who says The Pokemon Company is going to collapse in 18 years? I think it's going to keep going as long as it keeps making money which is still could and probably will for a long time. The same is true for Nintendo, and other game companies.The video game industry is not dying, it just is probably changing as other things change as time passes.

@Ghetsis-Dennis; That's not my point, my point is that you shouldn't believe everything everyone says. I know...Like me!
Im not saying that it will end at once but it on a gradual decline...

But I'm serious about this, because it's a concern for all of us. From what I've learned from English class, you need something that grabs your attention. Besides, It was MegamanDX's idea to post this blog.
Consoles aren't dying, they're just undergoing an evolution unprecedented in the field.

The style of your blog is no different than news media portraying video games as murder simlators. That type of news is also sensationalism, gross exaggeration and flat out BS.
I smell another crash
Nintendo doesnt have another outlet so like hell would they let them-selves fall
Sony is making VERY bad choices, with the playstation stocks PLUMMITING, but they have other outlets like phones, cameras, and tv's
Microsoft OWNS the pc medium outside of the xbox, and in terms of money bill gates is essentially god-emperor of america
To be honest last gen....wasnt as stellar as the ps2/gamecube age, wiith the future not looking so well from consoles.
However, the gaming medium as a whole cant sink due to pc gaming being AGES ahead of consoles.
Wow this is the first console gaming is dying I've seen. Most of it is PC-games are dying.
The problem is mainly due to them playing it safe and releasing the same game over and over again (Madden, Fifa, Call of Duty, Battlefield) not to mention outdated systems that almost everyone who want's a console has one or two by now. At this stage of the current generation of consoles they just reached the limit of what they can do to impress us. Let's see how this story holds up after the next CoD game is released.
The industry is changing - consoles will either evolve or die. And since CEO's don't like losing money, I'm banking on them evolving.
"If console gaming were a first-person shooter, it would be taking heavy fire right now."
This silly opening line didn't help endear me to the article.
I look forward to the console industry evolving to keep pace with social and mobile games.
I just hope it doesn't emulate said games.
