    Yes, next generation of consoles will be the last one. The hardware is already the same since the PS4.

      Makes Sense. Microsoft is already doing that with games like Minecraft being multi and doing collabs with Nintendo by having Banjo in Smash Bros.
      Sony already has MLB The Show on the Xbox.
      Games are very expensive to make in current era. Selling your multi billion dollar games only on one system isn't profitable, no matter how many copies you sell.

      This is why Sony is now releasing shit on PC.
      Consoles will continue to be made cause you need hardware to play them, but it will no longer be about software but about specs, services and price.
      Having a Series X isn't much different from having a PC, but a series X costs 500, a pc with the same specs go above 1k

      Nah. Normies don't wanna learn PCs.
      Consoles and vidya is way too big of a market to ignore, cloud gaming is hard to impliment due to poor countries(including USA) having bad unstable internet. How are you gonna sell FIFA to some poorfag Spanish/Brazilian/Italian people when their ping and connection isn't the best? Also you would need fuckton of servers as well.
      Tho problemis graphics whoring and the cost of making games. Those should be fixed to keep vidya good. It takes multiple years to put out mediocre shit because majority of time went to making graphics look good. GT7 on PS5 costs $70 and has MTX shit ffs. And "live service" model where classic cars gets added rather than having a complete package

                Have you seen Steam Bestsellers?
                Most of the time the Steam Deck or Steam Index are the bestseller, and I doubt more than… 3 million at most bought those? Probably being generous.

                In terms of game bestsellers, if it’s not Elden Ring it’s No Man’s Sky every three weeks when they have a 50% off sale, and I doubt No Man’s Sky sells gangbusters at this point.

                I am guessing if you sell 50k+ you are top 1 on Steam Bestseller. The only thing that makes PC the biggest platform behind mobile is mtx, the same reason mobile gacha games are always ported to PC but rarely to console

      People buy playstation because of their exclusivity deals. They successfully aligned themselves with all the major live service players over the course of last gen with exclusive content in destiny, call of duty, fortnite, fifa, nba2k and grand theft auto. So whenever those games have advertisements the playstation logo is always next to it. The xbox 360 had most of those deals in 7th gen (the ones which existed back then) and it successfully became the home of cod, gta etc. So it's all about the marketing. That's why Sony are bitching to the Brazilian trade commission about MS buying cod because just simply having xbox associated with cod will make millions of hardcore cod players switch platforms. The marketing alone has that much of an impact. And Sony have been investing heavily in cod marketing for the last decade to make playstation THE console for cod, which accounts for like half a billion dollars in revenue annually for sony. So you can see why they're pissed.

      It's more sustainable than ever more like. Sony is hitting record profits and revenue because there's more monetization in games than there's ever been.

      If you're referring to those players that vehemently would not play a non-exclusive game, those that go "How'd you like em sloppy seconds?", yet would cry if the game they wanted would get the exclusive treatment, just not for the platform they own, then the answer is simple.
      It just gives them an identity, a religion of some sorts, something to believe in. Is it just the result of years of consumerism and only consumerism as purpose? Probably.
      At the end of the day it's just a minority of casuals that would feel betrayed when a multi-billion corporation doesn't tickle their balls.

        This goes both ways though. Most console games that go to PC get the "Thanks for beta testing" gays and they're no better than what you mentioned. Worse in a lot of ways, because the games they're so proud of is generally years after everyone else finished it and moved on.

      Imagine a world in which every platform had games painstakingly made only for that console, utilizing every feature that the platform has to offer and optimizing the game to hell and back. This includes PC too, imagine if PC games weren’t just console ports and Indie games, but actual games made ONLY for PC like they were before Xbox Agent Smith’d all PC Game devs.

      That’s the world we lived in in the 90s, and I think we all just want to go back to that. instead, everyone makes 3rd person games in Epic or Unity so that it’s easy (or easier) to just transfer literally the same game to every platform, and it results in everyone getting a passable version, with PCs being completely disregarded and forced to brute force every game with 3 times the specs of the equivalent console.

      It’s a shut show, and it looks like it’ll remain the standard because everybody loves the idea of having one platform that’s just the dumping ground for every game ever made, regardless of quality.

    And soon they will stop making consoles because selling everything on other platforms is cheaper/more profitable than investing into your own ecosystem - one which may or may not do better/worse depending on the generation. People only bought Playstations for FIFA and CoD anyway.

    Microsoft has put out all their exclusives on PC day 1 for the last while because they know enthusiasts probably will stick with PC no matter what, and normalfags will always stick with consoles no matter what. It just comes down to whether lowest common denominator consumers want an Xbox or Playstation, I don't envy Sony's position. They have to compete with a corporation worth so much more than them that have never actually made money on the Xbox brand, but still keep investing because Microsoft can just away with it. They simply do not have the funds or manpower to make a Nintendo-esque walled garden anymore, hence them not even pretending to be one anymore.
