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.
