So, overall they say dedicated gaming is on the fall and moving more towards "mobile" (phones/tablets) and PC of course as it has been. The big 3 though are all coming out with new/updated systems.
Sony seems to be ditching handheld all together in favor of VR with the PS4slim and PSvr. While I personally have a paranoia about wearing a helmet on my head that prevents me from seeing or hearing the world around me, it seems to be a good move on Sony's part. Sony's popular and even their mistakes are overlooked often without question.
Microsoft... Well they have the scorpion coming out but other than it being in 4K I'm not sure it's any different than the current XB1. Online and pc gaming are really keeping micro alive in the west but in the east (Japan) they can't really give away systems.
The Nintendo Shift was officially announced yesterday and while Nin claims it isn't a replacement for the "failed" WiiU and top selling gaming system 3DS... We all know it is. Without much information though other than it being a home and portable console there is a lot of skepticism as to weather anyone will be willing to get one or not. And if 3rd parties fall through again for Nintendo... well, we can guess as to the Shift's shifty future.
The reason I bring this up is to ask everyone what they think about the gaming future. Will MS or PS make any more systems after the Slim and Scorpio? The 3ds has had a 5 year run so far, will we see any more MH games on it after this year?
Do you think most people are moving away from any type of dedicated gaming and to quick fixes on the smart devices?
I for one prefer dedicated consoles and hop to see them continue but really not sure they can continue as they are. Not sure on what I think would help either.
