In 10 years it is possible but not for now



Yes it will be bigger than console gaming, but not because of phones. It will be bigger because of convenience. The console type game market won't explode onto phones. Games like Halo 5 are still best played on a big screen with a controller. Can you imagine competitive multiplayer on a phone? Plus the vast majority of people gaming on phones want something simple to kill time.

Btw Angry birds only cost $0.99 and is free nowadays. Not much of a comparison.

You are only thinking about current phones. A decade from now we will have phones designed with competitive play in mind. 



Not for another 10 years at least, probably 15-20 for the countey folk.

How? Formed like a switch then try to play on a tiny screen while shouting insults into a headset on the bus?

Something like Tetris 99 can get really big on phones, Halo nah.



Hopefully every streaming service stays a novelty at best.

Nope Xcloud won't be bigger than console gaming next gen. Probably won't even be bigger than gamepass on Xbox next gen.
PSnow doesn't have even 2M subscriptions.

Here's a nice picture what cloud gaming is capable of :)

Running 1440p/30fps according to eurogamer



"Donald Trump is the greatest president that god has ever created" - Trumpstyle

6x master league achiever in starcraft2

Beaten Sigrun on God of war mode

Beaten DOOM ultra-nightmare with NO endless ammo-rune, 2x super shotgun and no decoys on ps4 pro.

1-0 against Grubby in Wc3 frozen throne ladder!!

Given infinite time, definitely streaming will be bigger than console gaming. The real question is when will it overtake consoles. That's a tough one to answer. There are a ton of variables involved. I'll put a guess at right around the time of the next generation turn over (the beginning of the generation after PS5/Scarlett).
