    Whats dieing about the computer industry? The computer is alive and well and in almost everythign we use today, down to the Cell phones we use, the GPS in our car, video game consoles, and the PC itself ha ha.
    The computer isn't going anywhere. We might replace the PC with more user friendly interface over the years, but computers will never die, nor will gaming or any other entertainment source. Just the way we use it will change.

    He isn't talking about gaming dieing off, he is talking about consoles dieing off. They will soon become nothing more than a HD with an internet connection to download games. Something that could eaisly be included in a universal DVR setup in the futre to store not just you games, but your movies,music and favorite t.v. shows aswell.

    People will not be picking out a DVD/Console/STB/DVR systems anymore, he is saying in the futre this will all come in one box much like the PS3/360 attempt but on a much grander scale encompassing everything entertainment, not just the physical media sources with limited DLC like games and movies today. But one large hardrive with unlimited DLC of every kind.

    In the future you will go out and buy your choice of the many "super boxs" and everything you toss on it be games,music,videos,tv, ect. will all be in a universal format and in the form of downloadable content that will work on any "super box". Movies,Games,Music will still be for sale but in digital format not physical, probably with the possability to transfer it from "super box to super box" with some type of re-writeable physical form like a memory card.

    Although maybe not, this may be the place they make up for lost cash revenue in recent years with all the stolen "peer to peer" content today. With no physical media source and a tagged download "like the VC games that can't move to another console" the entertainment industry would be forced to change to full download content, but also get a boost back to what they use to be before people stole everything online. ha ha
    I'm sure it could be cracked but honeslty only the most dedicated "pirate" would be willing to tackle the "superbox" and the 99% of other consumers would just start paying for everything again.

    And my mom just learned how to used torrent sites, ha ha she would be pissed.

    I think soviet is talking about PC gaming. Consoles have been more on par with PC's that people aren't buying games for PCs as much because of a few things. PC games can be downloaded via torrents for free, PC gaming computers are expensive and require lots of updating, and now days there are more developers working on consoles instead of PCs. This is why the "PC Gaming Alliance" has been formed. But some people disagree.

    idk have you been listening to anyone in the video game media talking about how games like WoW are just consuming everyone's time and money on the PC, thus theyre not buying much other games making the console look more attractive. (btw i only read the first 3 sentences of your post)

    You guys are ignoring the fact that we control the market. "The business model is very risky and the costs associated with creating new hardware are incredibly high"
    Risky because if their new "console" doesn't work then they are screwed.

    " In fact in 5 to 10 years I don’t think you’ll have any box at all under your TV, most of this stuff will be “virtualized” as web services by your content provider.”"

    This I believe. LONG before Google released their "office" web apps, Microsoft had a version. I was a tester for Office-Online SEVEN years ago. Anytime I wanted to use Word, Excel, Powerpoint I simply went to a secure microsoft website and there they were.

    It was Microsoft's plan that once broadband Internet hit an undisclosed saturation in the US, they would release it to the public. Cheap too, but a yearly subscriber rate. I think they were expecting $50/year. That would also allow for online storage and file transfers to other accounts. It worked VERY well, much smoother than Googles.

    It would have been a win win for everyone involved, but sadly the FTC thought it would give MS too much power and told them NO. Funny that the FTC doesn't think that about Google. Another case of letting a small company get away with something they won't allow Microsoft to.

    Im sure you did, looks like you only read the first 3 sentences in the article aswell. This isn't an argument about PC vs. Console gaming. The point is twards the fact that Gaming in general is going to change. It's too costly to come up with new consoles every 5 to 6 years especailly when taken at a loss for the first couple years. When in the future the same thing can be done on a universal DVR with simple upgrades, and atleast when you do purchase a new "super box" you update your entire home network not just your video game console.

    He also mentions how online games like some MMORGS games will continue to grow in popularity because of high speed internet connection being spread very quickly and widely among the world.

    The article has nothing to do with one format of gaming being more popular. It is that the onset of new technology is going to change the way gaming is done all together, and the popularity of some games because of this spread of technology.

    Try reading more than 3 sentences next time, no point commenting on an article if you don't read it or understand what it's saying.
