Paradox Boss: The Next Console Generation Will “Probably Be The Last”
Paradox head man Fredrik Wester, happy that his company had improved earnings in the digital space by 97% in 2011 — probably thanks to incessant Steam sales — believes that the future of gaming is exclusively in open platforms like the PC and phones and social networks, he said at the Paradox showcase in Stockholm this week.
The next generation of console hardware will probably be the last. I’d be surprised if we see another generation after that.
The problem with that thought is that a lot of folks like having their dedicated games machines, and they don’t want to spend a hell of a lot of money on a high-end PC that’ll be obsolete before a game console will.
I’d be surprised if we don’t see another generation after the next.
