Today there is no cell phone that can run something like Horizon Zero Dawn....without melting....consoles are here to stay because the core gamer can only get that type of experience in it or on a mid to high end PC which is a more expensive endeavor without many of the exclusives. So Consoles will survive.

PC has it's own exclusives though, and not all mid end rigs are "expensive" either.



Step right up come on in, feel the buzz in your veins, I'm like an chemical electrical right into your brain and I'm the one who killed the Radio, soon you'll all see

So pay up motherfuckers you belong to "V"

They do which is why said "many of the exclusives".

But clearly a lot of people can't live without Sony exclusives as demonstrated by the PS4 sales numbers . So as along as Sony doesn't allow them to go multiplat there will always be a huge segment of gamers willing to buy consoles.

You said "without many of the exclusives".

There are a lot more gamers out there that aren't on Sony systems as well. Gaming isn't just made up of just 3 consoles and one OS, it's made up of multiple OS's, multiple consoles and devices. There are practically a lot more gamers out there in total, than there on on PC or consoles alone.

The way Xbox is headed, they are just giving people choices, even Sony sees this though, and it's honestly a good thing, because it means more options, means more consumers, means more money.

The OP...



Honestly i don't mind being wrong or being percieved as wrong. Its a good discussion to be had right now. Now my assumption might not have happend in the timeframe i set but wouldnt it be great to have for lets say 10 -20 euros a month extra a device you would have had otherwise anyway that can stream or play what consoles or older pcs can play aswell hell maybe even highend pcs with enough technological advancements? Instead of simply saying no, think with me

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

The OP makes no sense, especially now. If anything, Sony has made consoles more relevant by pushing for extremely high quality exclusive games.

Not trying to put MS or Xbox down in any way, as I thoroughly appreciate MS for their support to the PC community, but their push in the PC market has essentially made Xbox more or less an affordable way to play their games, while core games that are truly interested in getting the best will get them through PC.

Mobile devices like phones won't ever come close to consoles in power due to the fact that there's a limit to how much power they can consume ...

Why don't people understand this?

for GPU: i dont know, its just graphics and resolution

Not anymore it's not. It's a very powerful compute tool, so you can use it for things like Physics and 3D Positional audio.

It takes about a generation for Phones to start getting near a console... At the moment we are in that funny place of having games with Xbox 360 levels of geometric complexity but with some other assets reminiscent of the Xbox One/Playstation 4.

Moores law does mean that phones can match a console, it just takes a long time... The same thing holds true with Console vs PC, PC can have much higher powerlevels.

For example, the Adreno 680 should be able to match the Xbox One in most tasks, especially when half precision is leveraged... The CPU that it is paired with should already have the edge anyway.
