Happy they are keeping it i do believe tho for those eho say that say they wont have a home console they will in some form even if it connects by the handheld or its alone nintendo just has 2 be smart but do not leave the home console just outlast xbox and you will rewp the rewards
How many console generations are honestly left though?
Apple is already apparently on the verge on inking a deal with US cable providers that would let them bypass a lot of bandwidth issues for example.
If Sony's own Playstation streaming service actually works ... then quite honestly there's no reason it couldn't stream PS4 quality games, but they are just artificially capping the service to only provide PS3 games.
Eventually honestly there will be no need for a home console. Everything will be digital and most likely all your movies/games/cable TV will come to you digitally (which you'll be able to enjoy around your home on your TV/tablet/phone whatever).
I think for Nintendo especially there's really not much motivation to release another console. Especially if that QOL thing takes off ... I think they're full on done with the console biz. They'll "support" the Wii U with 4-5 games a year after 2015 just to keep their core fans happy for the next few years, but I think after that they are going to completely wash their hands of the home console idea. Fusion handheld hybrid + QOL is where they're going IMO.
