Consoles are dying! That is a tired old argument that every gamer has heard for years. Cheaper PC’s brought it on. The popularity of handheld devices brought it on. And until now no one has made a compelling, intelligible argument as to why this is going to happen. Enter Ben Cousins. Ben is the General Manager at ngmoco. Ngmoco is a company that focuses on mobile games. He has also worked for Microsoft and Sony. The guy is very well qualified to discuss this kind of thing.

Ben Is able to put into a slide show very compelling evidence that mobile gaming will kill off console gaming like the TV killed the cinema. He has got a ton of financial and practical evidence to support his hypothesis, like declining sales of hardware and software.

Check out his presentation about gaming. Warning! It is the most interesting 26 minutes you will have all day.

    These types of claims are always going to keep coming from all facets of the industry. Consoles aren’t going anywhere, they’re just going to evolve the meet the needs of the market. Mobile devices, no matter how powerful they get, can’t replicate the experience found on consoles or PCs. Are they eating into the market share of traditional gaming devices? You bet they are, but that is only going to force consoles to evolve alongside mobile devices where both are going to thrive. There’s room enough for both in the gaming industry, but some men, like Ben Cousins, just want to watch the world burn.
