    I disagree with the guy. Nintendo has proven(again and again) people want games. Other features are nice, and some are essential in the future. Such as chat rooms. But overall game systems will continue to exist. We are 20-30 years away from reaching the graphics limit, probably longer. Downloadable games are the future; but consoles are still going to continue to upgrade, and change as much as computers.

    This guy in short is a retard. Now I feel bad for picking on him.

    The whole industry is a goldmine.
    they are lucky to break even between marketing, producing, and distributing them. usually companys dont see a profit until the last year or two of the consoles life.

    Exactly, that goes for just about everthing tech related today. Phones/Mp3's/Laptops/PC's/DVD/Video game consoles. For the most part electronics is not really a profitable buisness to be in unless you make money of things attached to it such as movies, games, updates, attachments ect. ect. The cost doesn't come down on making these items untill just before the next update comes out and then your back in the vicious circle.

    You toss the high end technology out on the market to get the consumers in and then rely on them purchasing things for the device in order to make your money back and hopefully a profit.risky buisness to say the least.

    This isn't about games going away or the concept of a console going away. This is about things being joined as one large unit because of the cost to develop them and the savings involved with this.

    Your new mobile device will be a Cell phone/PDA/Digital camera/handheld game/Mp3 player ect. ect. all in one.

    Same for your home entertainment your DVD/Cable,Satelite/Game Console/Stereo/Surround sound can all be cram packed into one box. The software can be updated quickly and eaisly without you even knowing, and everything you need to buy for such a devices will be right at your finger tips to download for a fraction of the cost. There will still be plenty of different companies making these "all in one" devices, but they will be universal for the most part with maybe some exclusive content to draw in customers much like with consoles today. Beyond that you would just go buy a new device to meet the specs you want at the time. Simple concept and it is deffinately the direction we are heading so far.

    Well G4 attck of the show said in a article that if the internet keeps expanding at the current rate it will run out of bandwith by the year 2015 but im sure there think of something
    You're kinda missing the point. Imagine if sony came out with a new TV that had a PS3/Blu-Ray Player built in? It'd be a hit. Now imagine if you could use your cable service to buy games online and download them directly to your TV's harddrive. All of a sudden you've got a TV, a PS3, and access to every game out there without leaving your couch all in one package. It's kinda like that.

    The point is rather than having all these different electronic devices it'll all just be built into one universal device for user convenience.

    +1, for those who disagree, please read wezeles' comment again. Using "die out" is a bit of a misnomer, the term "evolution" is more appropriate. As wezeles mentioned, this direction of an "all in one" for tech stuff is happening everywhere. Even for enterprise software like Oracle and IBM DB2 z/OS (where I work) . IMO version 1.0 is happening right now with the current gen of consoles, e.g. internet browsers, downloadable content, DVD player, etc. The next gen of consoles, most likely Sony and MS, will integrate even more functions into one piece of hardware. Before you know it the next gen Xbox will also have a DVR and smell-o-vision .
