Let the discussion begin.

Around the Network

Cloud is, unfortunately, here to stay, though earlier than I was expecting (I thought there won't be any major push for some 5 more years), but it is inevitable to overtake eventually all other forms of content delivery.

Not sure about VR, it is great and I enjoy it a lot, but it's maybe to early to tell - it has some really great potential once we hit fully wireless/ultra wide FOV/eyetracking-foveated rendering VR sets in mass market price segment, but it seems that for now it lost some of its initial momentum.

Further down the line, "direct injection" neural VR would most likely be massive and if anyone manages to make good volumetric display tech, I can see that giving birth to video game/board game hybrid industry.

Mobility. Go to the customer rather than having the customer go to you.

Technology gets smaller making it more portable and convenient. We're already seeing it with smart phones.

Mobile will continue to be the most popular form of gaming.

Cloud gaming will be the most prominent "hardcore" form of gaming.

VR will still be around and will be more popular than it currently is, but not as much as the other two.

VR will take over gaming. It will get to the point where big AAA games will take full advantage of VR and there wont be going back.

Cloud gaming will be first than VR.

All three.


China Numba wan!!

I think cloud gaming. AR may also play into the portable/cloud gaming sphere as you can actually use something like hololens or google-glass while crossing the road.

VR may dominate the home space along with more traditional gaming experiences.

Mobile, Cloud and Digital (PC) - That is it.

Mobile will be curtailed hard by tons of regulations sooner or later, though it will still stay as the biggest gaming market.
VR won't ever be accessible to a large public due to high entry costs and individual preferences.
Cloud won't become popular until internet providers get their shit together (which, considering games are going to become bigger and more demanding, they won't keep up the pace even if they tried).

You know it deserves the GOTY.
