Can consumers keep up with the advancing technology?

27 Maj

Okey so Microsoft confirmed that a new xbox is under work a few month ago and Nintendo also confirmed that a new console is coming and we may se a sneekpeek on E3.  Sony have also confirmed that a new console is on their way but the question is do they really have the money to do a new console?  (okey ofc sony have money but yeah…after all PSN problems.. time cost money)

are they throwing psp2 in the trash just because this ”we need to do a new console NOW because everyone else are doing it” illness. Or are they making a psp2 (NGP  but I hate that name)  and a Playstation 4 ? hmm…  but yeah well its  a good completion if one company are doing a new console everyone wants to do a new console. But can consumers keep up with the advancing technology? Ofcourse there are all types of gamers, those who just need all this new stuff on day one and those who´re not in such a rush. I guess that all this new technology are going to cost a looooooot of money soo.. But A new console release affects all of those gamers the same way. Their console slowly becomes obsolete.  Developers start concentrating on the new console, which causes less and less releases for the previous one over time.

But that’s not the main problem. I belive that The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 still have a good future ahead of them. There is still new games coming out and I guess we could live with Playstation 3 and xbox 360 for 1-2 more years thanks to great developers and consoles with the ability to get new features in the form of  downloadable updates.

the question is do we really need this?

 Xbox 720?

 Playstation 4?

  Wii 2 ?

    Både ja och nej. Både 360 och PS3 börjar väl pressas till sitt yttersta nu och då behöver en ny generation komma in och gå vidare i utvecklingen. När det blir är lite knepigare, 2012 ryktas(?) det för Nintendo, Sony och Microsoft 2013? Ingen aning.

    Men undrar lite när det sista steget blir, där vi kan säga att här är den ultimata konsolen. Efter denna blir det inga fler, för det behövs helt enkelt inte.
    Även om de någonsin kommer göra en gemensam konsol, så att vi slipper alla fanatiska människor som springer omkring både irl och på nätet och hävdar att just deras konsol är den bästa.
    Detta är något jag skulle vilja se, slippa tänka på (om man har flera konsoler) vilka vänner man vill köra spel x på maskin y.

    De bärbara får mer konkurans av dessa smarta telefoner, spelen är billigare och mer tillgängliga. Ska bli roligt och se hur denna marknaden utvecklar sig genom åren.
    Men på årets E3 får vi förhoppningsvis en glims in i framtiden =)

    Im a Sony fan and there has been speculation that they were working on a new system. Now its official, that new system will be the ps4. They said and quote on an article that the cost will be less than when the ps3 was built/introduced. This is also from that same article:

    The company spent significant amounts of money designing the PS3’s Cell processor from the ground up with IBM, and more on the plants to fabricate it.

    ”Significant cost reductions” for PlayStation 3 hardware was fingered as a major contributing factor to the division’s approximate $435.5 million profit during the fiscal year ending March 31, up from a loss of $1 billion the prior year.
