Will mobile phone gaming kill off systems like the 3DS?
I doubt it, there will always be dedicated portables.

Yes, the 3DS will be the last portable system from Nintendo.

Never, mobile gaming is just a fad and will die off soon.

PostSubject: Developer thinks next gen consoles won't have physical media   Mon Nov 01, 2010 12:09 pm


Quote :
Let's be honest, a lot of us have got smart phones. I can't remember the last time I went into a shop to buy an iPhone game, and I haven't missed it. In fact I've got lots of iPhone games and I'm quite happy. But the next range of consoles that will be out in the next five years, why would any of those need physical media? Why would they want physical media? If you've got it physically and you trade it, the hardware manufacturer just lost out, big time. When they produce their next console - let's call it Sony Next, it could be any platform holder Next - if they make it only a digital store, they absolutely control everything. Pricing, their margins, you can't trade it second hand. Their logistics and overheads come down considerably. The cost of manufacture of the original console comes down considerably. The reliability goes through the roof because there are no moving parts. Why would they not? -Blitz Games Studios CEO Philip Oliver

A very scary thought as a collector. No more physical games means no more game collections! What good is a collection of digital games you can't actually hold in your hand? Apple is already leading the way with the iPhone and Sony has dabbled with the PSP Go. As Nintendo gamers, we may have the last console that goes fully digital with games. Nintendo feels there is still an importance with physical games so maybe the last company to lose the cartridge game format will be the last in the digital move. I see it coming and I hope it gets put off as long as possible.

The references I made were for all digital products, being the iPhone and PSP Go. Everybody has some digital gaming these days.

Well, it may be the future, but all it really is is ripping off the consumer.

And unlike an intangible SERVICE (like internet, phone, etc) where though nothing is physical I still know what the money goes toward, DLC is charging you full price for just the shadow. Sure, its the same size, has all the same intricacies (at least, for this analogy) yet when you try to physically confront it... you can't!

I fear this day. It will be like the Skynet robots from Terminator taking over the world.
