It's already happening, not even a single console managed 200k last month in the US. That's pitiful. We need to start making plans for when gaming inevitably dies. 

the industry is not going to die anytime soon. last gen was off to an even worst start and in the end it ended up being the most competitive of them all. The industy will shift or evolve but it wont die. If anything I think it will set the stage for better gaming in the future. MSFT has a solid online infrastructure with their azure servers and if sony can nail the PS now stuff, it will make basically any TV, pc, phone, tablet, handheld or any form of internet device a potential console. Consoles will be there for those who prefer ease and we might finally see cross play between every device out there.

My friend, it's already dead.

Catch up on sleep I've missed in the past 30 years.
Nah still too much of a backlog to last the rest of my life and too many classics to replay.



People are still waiting for their Halo, Uncharted, Gears of War, God of War, Kingdom Hearts, whatever that's popular on consoles, etc. Not everyone is gonna rush out and get their new consoles right away.

As long as companies continue to make games for previous gen consoles, they're giving little reason to move forward to new consoles. Unless... backwards compatibility was a thing for these next gen consoles.



Smoke weed because it'll be cheap and legal by the time gaming dies.

Do what I always do? Go outside.



Play Nintendo games.
