Quick Quotes – Gaikai predicts hardware casualties before next-gen

Wednesday, 11th January 2012 23:00 GMT By Brenna Hillier

“Not all of the current console makers will have one more generation. That will be the big news at E3.”

– Gaikai’s chief product officer Nanea Reeves speaking at CES, as reported by IndustryGamers. An expected – but likely still distance – new round of hardware is the topic du jour ahead of E3 2012 in June.

    I think what Nanea Reeves actually meant to say is that we hope there is a console casualty before the next-generation cycle of consoles.

    If anything, Gaikai will go under long before Sony or Microsoft throw in the towel.

    The absence of a new Playstation console would seriously drive me away from videogames forever.

    I could be walking right into a “Why there’s no space in the industry for three consoles” article from Pat, but this comment is pure lunacy as far as I can see. None of the three looks even remotely like they plan to throw in the towel, and I doubt that Nanea has some insider knowledge that nobody else is privy to.

    Some people will say anything to try and remain semi-relevant won’t they?

    To tell you the truth i dont want this to happen, iam pretty good with all the 3 manufacturers that we have today and i hope they keep in this business, and if i say so myself i want sega to join the fray again, therefore in my eyes theres a possibility than rather reduce this will increase, but is my wishfull opinion here talking.

    Having said that if theres one company more akin to leave the industry will be nintendo, becuase is the only one company dedicated 100% to gaming, i mean as their primary activity, not like sony or microsoft that have multiple divisions with multiple products, therefore they are more susceptible to leave if they have a couple of failures on the home and handled fronts, they need to sold well in order to keep afloat,thats the main reason a try to support and defend nintendo a little bit more than the other two, because in the end the are the more susceptible of the three, and maybe the most hated company from fans of the other two companys, but dont get me wrong i love all three and i hope they stay for a long time, scratch that the fourth of them, sega please join again.

    I would love to see SEGA replace Sony as the 3rd console maker.

    SEGA understood games whereas Sony are too myopic, they only care about making flashy tech demos and can’t see that thier rediculous tech-obsessiveness is driving the industry down a shallow, joyless dead end where budgets are swallowed up on CGI and engines and actual gameplay takes a back seat.

    Okay, so having SEGA back is a pipedream, but the next best thing would be for Sony to skip the next gen, and then maybe with them out of the tech arms race they could keep going with the PS3 and maybe concentrate on the important part of games design. Maybe they could get back to how they were during the PS2 era.
