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.

its slowly happening. more and more people are using debit and credit each year.

I cannot remember the last time I touched my DS/PSP, well PSP for gaming at least!

Hand helds are and always have been a weeker form of gaming. Unless in the future they can make the home console portable and very powerful with tonnes of ports, etc, etc, I doubt it. The thing is, consoles always get much more horse power with each generation and that it is hard to make it portable when 1st created.

To note; Oil is gonna run out too... someday.

If Nintendo can't be stopped, then consoles as a whole must become obsolete. Seems like a new trend.

as far as i'm concerned, the 3ds will be the ultimate console, making all others obsolete. Nintendo is cannibalizing itself.


Waggle beat HD but can it stand to... 3D!!!!!!

Oh, your notion of cannibalization; your 8 years late and your 1 dollar short.

GB/GBA cannibalized N64 & GC, of course consoles on a whole were still not hurt for whatever reason... magic maybe?

Or maybe Japans current case is the ghost of GB past?



I'm Unamerica and you can too.

or maybe n64 and gamecube sucked, and were only surviving on strong first party franchises aimed at the core and really nobody else?

Still, two of my favorite systems, but from what current nintendo fans say, gamecube and n64 had like a third of the 1st party games that wii has.

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.

Yep. This will happen soon after Kojima becomes an Oscar winning director.

Actually that's possible. Monique won an Oscar, didn't she? I didn't watch her performance yet but I'm guessing that she was a loud and foulmouthed woman that hates skinny women. Am I right?

This guy really has his head in the clouds...

People see him as enigmatic, weird and interesting

I see him as a clown with a talent.



I'm not really here!

Kojima, Kojima... tsc, tsc. Like the thesis about Cinema, DVD and TV, once again, you are wrong.. as ever.

She was a loud and foulmouthed mom who hates her fat loud daughter, so close.
