    The Death of Consoles?

    Seems former Vice President of Xbox Europe Sandy Duncan is sayin that "there will be nothing under out TV's in 5 to 10 years".

    I have 2 sides on this:

    1. I find SOO hard to believe cuz gaming has such a HUGE following and honestly it goes more and more with every console put out. So i just cant see this happening

    2. IF this ever does happen the only way i see it, is that if we are really really advanced in gaming. Such as you put a headset on or something and its actually you in the game...you are Mario..but i dont know just a thought.

    Sandy Duncan sees it that you will stream data from a server or PC straight to your tv. Which does sound pretty cool and i would be willing to try it.

    Wats all your thoughts on this

    To be honest I don't see it happening either. Gaming is too popular, it's the 2nd best way of entertainment and I don't see it "dying" in 5 to 10 years, I think it will only improve.

    I don't see it dying anytime soon

    i mean look at Nintendo, who would have thought that we would have a system that uses motion sensing to play your games 5-10 yrs ago

    it can only go up from here
    Rest In Peace

    yea i agree it can only go up from here. but i also agree a bit with Sandy Duncan, the more i think about it. Cuz all he is saying is that the "box" we put our games into will be replaced. And that i can see happening in 5 - 10 years.

    Come on the Wii was on opera really man gaming has no chance of dieing unless it is found to actually kill people some how LOL!

    For a MS exec to believe it will happen makes sense MS is no Nintendo or sony. Maybe he is predicting MS's death?

    I think u read it wrong, he is NOT predicting the end of gaming. He is sayin that he predicts the end of CONSOLES. Gaming will live on just in a different way. He believes it will be feed through a server into our TV's.

    Well he has some valid points. These days every single media device has multiple roles. So a device ONLY for gaming seems a thing of the past. Just look at the Wii in Japan with its Tv guide
    Tip of the day:
    A big mistake a lot of you make is that wiiware games will be free.

    Wiiware is just the same like the virtual console. Its different in that it offers new games instead of old console games.

    I can think of some easy games ( Like tetris and some other in that direction ) that can be free but the majority will cost money.

    True, something like a TV with a console built in or something? Could be the other way around as well, or have a bunch of contraptions built in.

    But 5-10 years is too soon for consoles to be "dead". Maybe after another 5 years or so after the next console.

    This has been posted already though:
