“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]

Paradox Interactive seems like a wacky place to work. Not Marx Brothers wacky by any means, but only wacky due to the firm’s apparent sense of humor. Proof of this odd sort of thinking can be found in the firm’s list of upcoming titles, and some it’s passed on. Yes, this is the same firm which released Stalin vs Martians, but, there are some things out there that are just too dotty even by Paradox’s standards.
