Haven't we heard that credit cards would replace cash?
Or that videophones would replace telephones?
Or mobile phones would destroy handhelds?
Or that the NES is a fad and video games would only exist on computers?
Did any of these happen? No.
Consoles will continue to exist for a long time.
Are you kidding me? 3 of the 4 things on your list DID happen. If you're going to try and make a point at least use better examples.
