  1. Xbox and Sony seem to think that Consoles are dying since all their exclusives are on PC, Nintendo thinks so too but they decided to be a mobile platform since they can’t compete.

  2. Of course. outside of recent shortages, PCs are more accessible than ever and consoles are essentially just PCs now. The only company who has a handle on this problem is Nintendo because of their IPs (and the fact that they’ve gone fully handheld). There used to be pretty strong pros and cons for PC vs consoles. Both sides had something desirable. But now, the people who buy consoles are just the people who have always bought consoles and haven’t thought much past that. The actual benefits are dwindling.

  3. unironically yes
    pc and mobile will be the only relevant platforms in the future. people dont need consoles to run netflix or play dvds anymore, and there’s less and less reason to buy one when all their games come to the better platform later anyway.
    oh yeah, and streaming will take off. that’s the next thing that’s going to ruin the industry.

  4. Home consoles maybe, we’ll have to see how the steamdeck plays out to make a judgement on handhelds but my guess is handheld or hybrids is the future of consoles.

  5. It feels like it. They were always just cheap gaming PCs but in this day and age it seems more so now that alot of people just use them to play PC games
