This has to be one of the stupidest tech articles I've ever read. The writer sounds like a Apple fanboy that knows little about the markets of all of the products he mentioned. Video game consoles are part of a niche market, they aren't going anywhere.
Came across this earlier, it's obviously made by someone who has no experience on... anything related to technology. The wii struggles? why of course, it already sold what it had to, what the hell is this person talking about? consoles have a given life span too, like cell phones, cept cell phones last 4 months only.
Yeah, I read this article myself, while there's some valid points such as standalone GPSes eventually going to the wayside, consoles? How about no. Surprised though, that the guy didn't say something like physical media for consoles. I would've LOLed at that one. Lemme put it to you this way, the day that happens is the day I give up on games.
