Microsoft Most powerful console available. The Xbox is doing well on its homecourt, but on the road sales aren't dominating.

Crytek ~ Next-gen overdue, tablets may takeover

Crytek founder Cevat Yerli did an interview with VG247. In the interview Yerli expressed his feelings that the next generation of consoles are overdue, and the longer it takes the next generation to arrive, the more in danger consoles become of being replaced by tablets as gaming devices..

Quote:



Speaking with VG247, Yerli revealed, “We can’t comment on or even speculate as to when, or if, the next generation will be announced. But we think that it’s time for the next generation and we think that it’s overdue already.”

The Crytek CEO also painted tablet devices as a very real threat to console specs, “The current generations are drying out and the longer we wait for the next generation of consoles, the higher the likelihood that they could fall behind tablets in terms of being the first thing people reach for when the time comes to play games.”

~ VG247


“Tablets are putting pressure on the gaming industry, and taking over in some ways, so that should be kept in mind.”
Anyone have the same feelings as Crytek's CEO? Is this generation outstaying it's welcome? Are consoles in danger of being replaced by tablets?

When tablets are pushing graphics that are even in the ballpark of console games, the console generation is showing its age.

That said, I was never one to rush a new generation. If MS hadn't killed the original Xbox about a year too soon, we'd not be in this predicament.

MS was smart doing what they did, they got out the 360 a year before PS3 and it shows that was the correct way to launch, they took Sony's massive market share and destroyed it.

Hard to say they destroyed it...last I checked, the PS3 moved a ton of units.

Granted, the 360 has sold more, but it's not like Sony is out of business.
