What genre will shine next generation? If it's FPS again, I might just have to shoot myself in the face.
76.322 to 70.744 is a 70% drop. - Sailor Goon
600,000+400,000=1.1 million - Sailor Goon

I could see them doing some awesome stuff with sandbox games on next-gen consoles.

What are you talking about? Platformers haven't ruled a generation since Gen 3 (NES/Sega Master System).

Last gen (PS2/XB/GC/DC) was ruled by RPGs. The gen before that (PS1/N64/Sat) was ruled by RPGs (with a 3D platforming schism brought about by the N64). The gen before that (SNES/GEN) was RPGs as well.

Is it any wonder RPG fans have been making so much noise lately? The genre that dominated for 3 generations (~15 years) suddenly disappears and is replaced by its polar opposite: The FPS.

But if you take the Indie schism into account, 2D platforming is actually back in full-force this-gen. So, I really don't know what the future holds. I'm going to assume more FPS domination, considering how many millions of units every new CoD sells.

RPGs did well, but we're far from ruling the generation.
