[QUOTE=ivid;2595299]I’m not so sure Mr. Belvedere, games are the core of most consoles business by a large margin. The PS3 can already do so much more than games and not too many people care. I don’t see PS4 adding anything game-changing (pardon the pun) to the non-gaming feature set that will change this. Of course Sony would like to but I think gamers just want their games for most part .[/QUOTE] The thing is we do not need that much power and solitary systems anymore.
Most smartphones can handle all games we can throw at them, given they are old enough games. Smartphones core function is to be your personal assistant. Gaming is secondary on that. But the gaming market on smartphones is booming business. It’s portable, powerful and cheap.
I think consoles with a single function will also cease to exist and get more a big box (or a huge box in the cloud you connect to) that can do a lot of stuff. But perhaps i’m dead wrong. I have discussed this before and was proven to be wrong then.
