What if Sony died this gen?

I would leave gaming forever!
It won't be easy but I will continue gaming on other consoles!
I would switch, no problem here!
I would go where their first party go!
I would be happy!

Well the thread title says it all. What if the PS4 for some random reason, it loses all of it's momentum, starts selling badly and Sony decides to go out of the console race and start making his first party studios on other consoles? I'm not saying it's doomed because it isn't, I'm just entertaining the thought.

That would leave us with Microsoft, Nintendo and Valve right? Would you switch? Where would Sony first party go? 

I also have a curious question! Most console generations there where 2 or 3 big competitors, so this gen there will be 4. Is it likely that one of the big 3 drop out of the console race? You also have to take into account that the Steam Machines will be the fourth competitor! So there will be 4, will the market be able to hold 4 consoles?

Personally I don't think Sony would die this gen but it could happen I mean anything can happen! I think it's first party will go to Steam or something like that, I'm just guessing! I wouldn't like it though. I have most of their consoles and played them a lot!

What's your opinion? (Please don't tell me it can't happen, I'm just being hypothetical xD)

What about Valve? They are entering the market with the steam machines! Will they find success?



I will go where their first party goes....mainly the Sly Cooper and Ratchet and Clank franchise

Don’t follow the hype, follow the games

Where do you think they would go? Would they go anywhere?

Lol, 4 people voted for they would be happy. I wouldn't really care if Sony went under to be honest.

that would be the perfect opportunity to quit games

If it was the case, i suppose i would become a Nintendo only customer.

Just switch, well not even switch just play alot more on my PC than i currently do. Im sure i will have all consoles within the next 2 years anyway.

I was getting XO after PS4, but i may get Wii U instead, probably have more unique experiences, im sure PS4 and XO will have mostly the same games.

Plenty of japanese third parties will go bakrupt (or become mobile only devs) in the process.
