Will the next generation of consoles be the final generation?

EA thinks so:

Thoughts? Other than that EA is bunch of demonic hell-spawns bent on consuming the wallets and hearts of innocent gamers... That's obviously a given.

If at least 1 company makes another system after next gen, then they all will make a system.
I see Nintendo making another system, Sony and/or Microsoft will say "We still want a piece of that pie".

But the question is will it be necessary? For Nintendo, whose hardware is always behind the rest of the pack, the answer is yes. But what about Hilleman's point about software and services?

Of consoles that process games locally? Maybe

I think we might get form factor type things like small cubes of Ouya size that streams games. That hardware will be around for a while.

Unlikely the last. The juggernauts EA, SquareEnix may be gone. But others will take their place. Bad business practices, AAA mulit million dollar flop games will be the death of them.

I look at pandora and netflix and think its only a matter of times before games head in a similar direction.

Not sure I like the sound of that yet. We really don't have the infrastructure to rely so heavily on streaming and all-digital yet. Xbox One found that out the hard way.
