Quick Quotes: Paradox CEO clarifies comment regarding the future of consoles

Friday, 27th January 2012 18:45 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

“Nintendo, Sony or Microsoft [won't] disappear from the gaming market; quite the opposite. They are now, and will be for many years, a driving force in our market; however, the way they operate will probably evolve into a somewhat different role. I strongly believe the big console makers of today will have a big impact on the games industry tomorrow, but it will not take a piece of hardware between the gamer and the screen for them to do so. Maybe we’ll see a Sony, Nintendo, or Microsoft “hub” integrated in TVs or their own OS included in the TV; let’s not forget the Google TVs that have already seen their first generation and the oft-rumored Apple television set (not to be confused with Apple TV). As a content producer, I am really excited to see what happens on the hardware market in the coming years.” – Paradox CEO Fredrik Wester clarifying his remarks about the future of consoles. [pic]

    It most likely will evolve into cloud gaming of some sort. Depends on how peripherals are handled by future setups…i.e. what processing power is needed to run advanced kinect sensors and so on!

    Sounds like he got a lot of fanboy hatemail.

    I’m not sure the line-up is going to be the same once the transition starts leaning towards cloud. Corporations are nothing if not set in their ways, and it’ll take some pretty innovative guys to do it right.
