      Neither does gen z or a sizeable portion of millennials.

      The future is PC/mobile. Seems like something happened during covid that even convinced the normies to drop consoles. Even Nintendo's time in the handheld market will come to a close within the next 10 years or so, now that mobile phones are essentially becoming portable consoles.

          Depends. Until companies like apple start pushing for controllers and PC-level configuration/emulating/modding rather than their touch-screen & app bullshit, then the future is still mobile AND PC. At least for the time being.

              Hence the future being triple-A live service slop, and AA & indie games. But yes, aside from some few brand-name heavy hitters, most triple-A single player games are going to die out.

                That's just a consequence of the cost and de time getting bigger. You wouldn't need to outsource shit to pajeets if the costs were manageable and it didn't make you gain time. Quality is the first thing that gets sacrificed when doing this.

              Nintendo might've won the console war, but even they know their hardware reign will be short-lived. The Switch 2 will probably be their final console as well, especially as more & more shareholders pressure them into the mobile, PC and live-service market after the deaths of Playstation and Xbox are secured.
              They didn't decide to jump into movies, theme parks and TV for the hell of it, you know? Somethings gonna have to fill the void for hardware sales.
              My concern is them devolving into a Disney or The Pokemon Company situation, which seems rather likely, given the drop in quality many of their games have seen this gen.

              You can't pull off complex shit with touch screens, nor can you mod or emulate on a phone. It's not great for a competitive scene, either.
              What will happen is that mobile will become the casual market while PC will become the hardcore market.

                There are PUBG tournaments being run on the mobile version. A lot of younger gamers dont care about the differences and are perfectly happy with touch screens. Isnt there a recent ancedote about how a developer was testing his game at a convention and watching kids absolutely get confused and struggle with using a controller? That's just the reality of kids nowadays just like how using files and folders on PC is confusing to kids since they grew up on iphones.

                Mobile is where games go to fish for whales and Raid shadow legends money. Mobile gaming absorbing the switch market that pushes games like the ones you horribly emulate on your phone for a future catalog of unskippable ads, mtx and shitty coombait gacha is a BAD thing. Get it now?

                No? Are you talking about an entirely different person? I joined this conversation here. [...] Everyone has a phone. Everyone has a portable gaming and emulation machine in their pocket these days, and their capabilities are only going to get better. You're screaming in the wind, dude. Do you not even have a smartphone?

                Also, as I've previously stated, having a controller for a phone is no more cumbersome than a Switch. You may find the Switch to be too cumbersome for portability, but clearly the hundred million plus people playing Switches like it just fine. They're not all in docked mode.

                Idk the specifics of what you guys are arguing, but they make controllers for phones that are pretty slick now. I’ve tried one or two that are built great.. the problem from what I gather tho is that most phone games aren’t made with support for controllers. So they have to use software to integrage and things get a little wonky. That could change though in the future, the mobile gaming market is so massive I could see things going that way

                Sounds like the typical argument of being afraid that random strangers would judge you for playing a handheld console in public.
                Unless you were to blast the sounds very loud in public like a Black person, but that's a problem not limited to videogames.

                Honestly, if Switch 2 is backwards compatible with OG Switch and has good battery life, I might get it
                >t. PChad

                For me, it's also the lack of region-lock in addition to the backwards compatibility (hoping that it will give a performance boost on some Switch ports I have, and not run them on a special canveat to match the Switch 1's specs). Depending of how the Switch 2, I could sell my Steam Deck and never bother with a gaming PC for the next decade and so.

      This is how you know playstation is done for and puts into perspective why they're so dedicated to catering to PC fans with games and even trophies now. Europe is playstation land generally. I live in Europe and anecdotally people have either lost interest in gaming so didn't buy a PS5 because it offers fricking nothing for them or they've migrated to PC which has exploded in popularity among youth because of steamers using it. I can genuinely see switch 2 stealing most of playstations remaining marketshare in the region if it has proper 3rd party support like playstation/xbox does. We know CoD is coming to switch so if it cab run CoD it can run pretty much any AAA multiplat like GTA, Ass creed etc.

        Unless it's a massive critical success these games die and get their servers shut down within 2-3 years and sometimes less.

    console generations used to represent a complete paradigm shift in the industry that uproot the very way you conceptualized games. Now the jump from PS4 to PS5 just represents less load times and sometimes higher resolutions and textures. But basically nothing else. Most people are still just playing games like Fortnite which run on phones of all things. It'll take the NEXT "fortnite" type event to make newer consoles relevant. But that might never happen again in a way that highlights consoles specifically

        I mean, it's nothing new. Mobile gaming has been dominant revenue wise for a while now. But I think you're doomposting a little bit too much here, revenue sales for mobile games are skewered towards the ultra-casuals who are massive in size and the whales who can spend truly absurd amounts of money on shit like gacha. But mobile games can only go so far, you can only control so much with a touchscreens. The market for proper, complex video games will always be there. You aren't going to see fromsoft or fullyfledged monster hunter games on a phone, after all.

And big breakthrough like genshin are just more indication to these devs that mobile is the future. Game dev's costs are through the roof and dev times keep extending.

            Even then, PC still has an advantage with modding, emulation, customization, etc.

            >You can't pull off complex shit with touch screens, nor can you mod or emulate on a phone. It's not great for a competitive scene, either.

            There are PUBG tournaments being run on the mobile version. A lot of younger gamers dont care about the differences and are perfectly happy with touch screens. Isnt there a recent ancedote about how a developer was testing his game at a convention and watching kids absolutely get confused and struggle with using a controller? That's just the reality of kids nowadays just like how using files and folders on PC is confusing to kids since they grew up on iphones.

            I see plenty of gen alpha & z kids switching over to PC as they get older though. But yes, I agree that mobile devices will dominate the market eventually, once they get a handle on controllers & other peripherals, modding, emulation, etc. For now, PC just offers more content worth the price range, the only setback is that it isn't mobile/on-the-go.

              That's the thing, they won't. At least, not in the open way that PC can do so. Sure, peripherals and controllers maybe, but if there's any truth at all to the reports tha a lot of zoomers and alphas, outside of the tiny percent of autist engineer brain types who specifically seek it out, either don't care , don;t know about, actively have distaste for, or otherwise aren't about openness, modding, emulation, piracy, or anything that had to do with control over your own machine.

              I'm not sure about the whole "they don't understand folders" thing, but I will believe in a second that a lot of them don't know any other way to install something except "go to the App Store".

                At best, they see it kind of like writing in cursive script with a fountain pen - something hopelessly outdated that if it isn't your hobby, there's no point to learning to do a hard, complex thing that has to them little benefit. At worst, many of them are actively hostile to those who advocate for privacy and anonymity are good, dislike advertisements , want control of their own system etc. These are kids who have grown up with nothing but data mining social media all around them, at faster and faster rates (tiktok being prevalent among them) that even when they're crying about being cyberbullied and how everyone is afraid of offending everyone as there's a digital "permanent record" tied to their meatspace identity, they still can't conceive of an alternative.

        Phone games are shit and getting shitter every day. When smart phones were invented gamers actually used to talk about them, infrequently and as a shitty variant of a handheld console but there was some crossover, now the markets have completely divided.

        The unfortunate reality is that paying for a version complete game is something only gamers over the age of 30 care about and the future of gaming is all in F2P games with a ton of microtransactions. Also having a game that works on multiple platforms like PC, Mobile and Consoles all at the same time. The new generation has no platform loyalty, they are platform agnostic because their loyalty is to the account they have and not where they're playing them.

              No one is buying the Steam Deck anon. No one is buying the Rog Ally. The consoles sales numbers dipping still has them millions and millions of units sold higher than any computer handheld. People aren't switching to computer handhelds. People just aren't buying as much of anything right now. Which makes sense, because have you looked around and noticed how bad inflation is?

                Games are succeeding on PC where they flounder on consoles. Publishers are shifting their focus to PC as their main platform, even nip ones like Capcom because they see the writing on the wall. If everything was floundering Sony wouldn't be sacrificing their hardware and exclusives by bringing them to PC since they'd just flounder on there as well and not be worth it.
                Unless something magically changes and somehow PC goes to hell and consoles get way better, this is the slow death of consoles. It will take a little while longer for handhelds as they have the benefit of portability, but with PC encroaching on that space, it's inevitable there as well.
                The Steam Deck has been consistently at the top of the best seller list on Steam for years. People are buying the Deck despite Valve not even trying to really market it. They're not putting it into any retailers or shipping to most countries. They don't want to shoulder the burden of PC handheld hardware, they're hoping somebody else will do it so they can benefit without the hassle. All they'd have to do is acknowledge they're in by far the best position to deliver on such device for a reasonable price, change their mind with the Deck 2 and it would be over.
                Either way, I don't see consoles lasting another generation after this next one. There might be a Switch 3, but it will flounder the same way the Wii U did.

      Consoles were the primary systems in which a lot of people played videogames because they were affordable and easy to use. Insert game play game, what changed? well a lot of fricks ups really. Mostly due to Microsoft.

      Once upon a time you could get a console, hook it up and then insert a game, easier than a VCR. In fact game consoles took a lot from VCR / DVD Players and therefore normies knew how to use them by instinct.
      Now there are so many caveats with consoles you are one skip and a hop from just buying a PC or making your own. Anyone too dumb or poor will opt for mobile gaming instead.

      After accessibility, the next reason to buy a console were the exclusives. Microsoft and Sony enter a chicken race that ended with both of them crashing. Both tried to push hardware while simultaneously losing to the PC environment. These changes in hardware were too drastic and expensive for many studios. Nintendo had the right idea, marginal updates to the hardware that let their developers accommodate and even then you can read the old Iwata interviews that explain how awkward the transition from the Wii was to the Wii U. The manpower and resources needed to make HD games was terribly taxing for Nintendo. A Ps5 pro model was announced sometime ago and some developers expressed in twitter that it seemed unnecessary given that no one knows how capable the PS5 really is, Sony and MS could go another 6 years with the current gen instead of phasing out consoles already with no notable exclusives. Both companies have lost all faith their base had in them so you can assume those consoles will do worse.

          Sales are always constrained by supply at launch, typically consoles sell the most in the middle years when they are more readily available and have more games released. The PS4 sold most of its units in 2016-2017. A price drop and new models help but the Switch proved very successful without any price drops and no major revisions.

            >the Switch proved
            The Switch in unique, it never happened before and it's probably never going to happen again. Just like with the Wii, they were able to find a new audience of casual gamers; but unlike the Wii, they keep selling to the core gamer audience as well.
            Also, COVID happened and the Switch was basically the only console you could buy. Same reason why the Series S ended up becoming the second best selling console during that period.

    It’s been the trend for awhile as machines get cheaper and more powerful. Massive games like Fortnite and league run on a phone. All the future money is in storefronts and platforms. It’s why epic will yank Fortnite from the Apple Store and lose all that money just for a chance to get their own thing going. And why Sony is ok pissing off people over the helldivers thing just to get some more subs to their store. Consoles have been loss leaders for a long time, they lose money selling hardware, but it’s no longer required to get a machine in someone’s home to get the lucrative software/publishing money… so why do it?

            There's a lot of factors why that's wrong. The deck won't be able to play switch 2 emulated games obviously, but pc at large absolutely will and it will happen just as quickly as it did for the switch. It's more about the architecture and demand than anything. Emulating the ps4 is much harder and a ton of work for one game that people think will inevitably be ported to pc at some point anyway.

              The Switch 2 SoC is gonna be two Switch processors stitched together. It's gonna be less powerful than a bloody Xbone. It's also an ARM device using modified Android. It's gonna have a working emulator on launch.

                I mean the switch doesn't have any games that look better than the best of ps3 either.
                I expect the switch 2 to be a little weaker than the deck, which is around ps4 level.

    I don't know how I feel about consoles dying. On the one hand they're absolute dogshit cancer and exist to shaft their consumers. On the other hand it keeps all the people who buy into them nice and quarantined. If consoles died I don't think Sony Microsoft and Nintendo would just shrug and say "well I guess we can't do things like make our consumers pay to use their own internet anymore!" they'll just try to bring that to PC or have their cancer take a new form.

    They intentionally don't make any games for consoles because they want to get rid of physical media. They hoped the consoles with no disc drive would outsell those one but they didn't. People still want physical media - however, the israelites want you to own nothing and be happy ( and to eat the bugs) so they will rather burn the console market than to give people what they want.

      It’s because there’s no money in hardware. Xbox loses money with every box they sell. It’s always been a ruse to get you to buy their software and use their storefront. As tech gets smaller/more ubiquitous and streaming games/bandwidth gets better there’s no need for them to get a box in your home. It wouldn’t surprise me if the mega-corps that can afford to burn money make some kind of console option for decades to come as a sales tactic (like Amazon making tablets), but it won’t be a market driver and it won’t be needed for most people.

    Consoles will always be a thing as there will always be a market of people who prefer convenience and a certain type of library. Systems like the PS5 being priced at a premium fee is honestly a moronic business because it filters both the average person and the 'enthusiasts'.

    I'm an old PCgay of the 90's but something like the Switch nearly replaced my needs for PC gaming as I mainly play Japanese and East-Asian titles these days (neither requiring a particularly strong hardware) in addition of the social aspect (pretty much the sole console that has many local multiplayer games) and convenience (the hybrid factor and no region-lock)

      The problem with you is mostly perception, you're stuck in this "AAA is the only game!" mindset so if anything isn't "big" it doesn't exist to you.

        That's not a problem with him, that's a problem with consoles. If their exclusive output is so slow, that makes them far less enticing. PS5 having damn near nothing aside, people love to claim the Switch has games, yet its number of exclusives is less than the PS3, a system people constantly mocked as having no games. It took Nintendo 6 years just to asset flip BotW. And the Switch benefited massively from the ported Wii U's library since nobody bought it. It's only going to get worse.
        As shitty and anticonsumer as exclusivity is, it's the only reason to buy a console and if they can't manage a good output of games then it's a free lunch for PC.

              As a few anons have said your PC is easy to set up to work as a console, and modern consoles are functionally identical to PCs. Its OK to be a console hobbyist who's passionate about his interests but you gotta admit, in recent times the line between pcs and consoles has blurred a lot. On both a hardware and a software level obviously but even on price-to-power ratio. Maybe the next gen will fix that last point but while PC and console gamers argue mobile gamers outnumber us many to one. And they'll spend huge money on predatory slop that turns their camera on to watch them defecating. Our preferences will be irrelevant soon as both our platforms grow to resemble and integrate with phones. Grim isnt it?

                If this was going to happen it would've happened already, mobile profits have crushed the rest for a long time. People like to cope saying PC and consoles don't compete they're totally different markets, but the reason real games still get made despite mobile being so much more profitable is because they and mobile games are literally a very different market. You can't replace one with the other, there will always be a demand for both. The moment mobile starts eating into the space is the moment mobile has become so capable that they can do everything a desktop can do and play all the same games. Which could very well happen, but at that point the distinction is pointless and they could just as easily be called a PC handheld as they could a mobile phone since they'd just be pocket PCs.

    Gen Alpha and zoomers dont play consoles. Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft will have console sales suffer as the years go on due to new generation of kids being perfectly happy playing their phone games. With COD, Fortnite and other big games being 1:1 to the console games and phones being a must buy for everyone compared to a console that costs up to $500 now, it's no surprise that they are just being happy with their phone games instead.

    Consoles have outpriced themselves to just working adults and unless we see consoles being under $200 again, all three console manufacturers will have problems.

        They have 7000 employees and growing. It took 600 and 5 years to make ToTK. Furukawa has already said games are getting more expensive to make and it takes more time. Nintendo will have to take over 5 years with hundreds of people to see 1 entry come out now for their bigger titles. Nintendo being a step behind technologically does not mean they are immune to the realities of how expensive game development costs are.
        This is why Nintendo is investing heavily into other forms of media like movies, tv shows and more because they know they cant output games fast enough anymore in order to keep their franchises strong.

    Make some fricking great games and drop price to 299 with ps5 and I might buy it instead of more great games on pc. There is currently only nhl 24 and gran turismo 7 that would be good enough console games and those are not enough to make me spend any money on consoles yet.

      Not how it works, they'd go under in 6 months if they did that. It's completely unsustainable. And that's exactly the problem with the state of the industry right now.

        699 is not sustainable pricing tested by sony with ps3 either.
        The consoles would have to be loss leaders and the inhouse games and 30% cut that timmy hates on pc and monthly israelite payments for online services should cover the expenses like it used to do with 360 days.

    Consoles are simply making less money because there's a whole ass generation of teenagers to early 20s spending money on microtransactions for skins on Fortnite mobile instead of buying a new $60 game. It's just that simple. People can cry about how shitty games has gotten and how there are microtransactions and shit but the fact is that modern games are doing incredibly well but they cant fight back against a whole ass generation of people spending gaming money outside of consoles and it's just gonna get worse from here.

    Isn't it completely normal that console sales are down 4 years into their release cycle? Especially after last year's black friday and holiday sales where every big retailer was basically giving away PS5s and Series X consoles for like 200 bucks? At that point, anyone who wanted to buy a current gen console already did.

    Consoles offer no benefit to the user, barely any to developers, and are there so that platform owners can basically engage in rent-seeking behavior to run their own platforms and engage in parasitism against both devs and players. I'll grant that up through the PS2/Gamecube/Xbox generation consoles were actually useful, but starting in the PS3/Wii/X360 era possibly, or DEFINITELY after it, they are no longer necessary; consoles basically became locked down proprietary PCs/mobile devices and have no business existing.

    The only "console" that matters today is the Steam Deck; its the model all others should follow. Using open PC hardware, a FOSS operating system, standardized platform that contribute to other software projects and/or are open on their own, not locked down in any way and user-centric. Its a prefab ready to game portable handheld PC, no bullshit. Thats the only "console" platform that has any value.

      Sure, Triple A gaming may go the way of absolute gacha/live service/micro-transaction hell slop but excellent indie games will always be developed. You act as though every single gamer in the world will suddenly only want to game on a phone with intrusive micro transactions, which is blatantly untrue, even for the newer generations of kids.

      Yes. PCs will always be necessary in some form and when anyone can just freely make games for an open platform like PC there's no risk of them going away. The only way PC gaming would die is if everyone collectively hated video games.

      > if Switch 2 is backwards compatible with OG Switch
      Growing up with Nintendo, the Switch 2 might be backwards compatible, but you never know when Nintendo will just leave your games behind to die. They are authoritarian with game transfers and they view their older games as easy ports to shore up their libraries and now as a part of a paid online rental service. They don't want anyone to keep their games on relevant hardware for very long since that would prevent them from selling them to you over and over again.
      If compatibility is something you care about, Nintendo is the worst one to buy into and it hurts extra when they won't even discount their games even as they stop selling and they stop making copies so that library they leave behind cost a fortune.

    2020-2022 basically frontloaded 10 years of growth into 3. Now people are either trying to get outside or not spend money on live-service slop.

    because the economy is in the drain, my friend looked up ps5s and the CHEAPEST one was 150+ and COLLECT O N L Y from london.
    its still waay more new and its been out for, more than 5 years idk.
    and your best game offerings are censored blade, final fantasy 7 rebirth part 2 which has no reason for being ps5 only when the first one has better lighting than pc (I compared them myself) and lacks the yuffie dlc for literally no reason other than to sell ps5s.
    and ff16 which I would have otherwise given a shot but again ps5 only.
    not to mention my pc with a 4gb OLD ass graphics card at this point outperforms a ps5 minus only ray tracing, if ps5 can do raytracing.

    the worst part is the other day I mentioned to my mom "what the frick am I supposed to do for an income at this point sell cocaine" and shes just like do it be rich.

    Ok, why Stadia failed again?

      Because internet infrastructure is nowhere near the level required for it to work properly. My conspiracy theory was that google was intentionally letting Stadia fail so they could sue Comcast for being a shitty monopoly that doesn't provide adequate service, so Google could start making their own ISP.

        Stadia was just shit. the infrastructure is fine.

        also, major streaming providers (Netflix, Google/YouTube, Twitch, etc.) often have peering agreements with ISPs in order to have a sort of direct line into their network, as opposed to the normal routes taken for internet traffic. this, along with well-placed cache servers that serve up the most common content, is what allows streaming to work. it also is why livestreaming has such low RTT as opposed to in the past.

          Genuinely delusional if you're an American. American internet is worse than most third world countries in large part because it's basically impossible to lay new cables so it's impossible to compete with the current providers. Streaming videos works fine because .1 second of input delay is not noticeable and a minor buffer here and there doesn't affect the experience whatsoever. And most game streamers have a slight delay on their video on purpose. In a videogame, those things make a game literally unplayable. It's baffling to me that you're on Ganker and you're trying to imply that streaming a game and streaming a video are functionally identical.
