PS4 & 720; The Last Consoles.

Playstation 4 and next-gens in danger of being final consoles, says game devs.

Quote:
The free-to-play model has developed into one of the most dominant demographics in gaming, and it may be powerful enough to swallow the console industry whole if they do not change.

According to a report from MCV on Friday, Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli said what he thought will happen if Sony and Microsoft do not adapt to what's happening in the free-to-play arena.

"This will be the last console generation.

"If consoles donít join free-to-play gaming aggressively from now on, then it will be outpaced by PC and mobile. If they donít adapt they are not going to survive.

"If Sony embraces free-to-play as a major way for PlayStation, that could be the key console. I would love to see a generation that supports free-to-play, because we will support it," Yerli said.

David Reid, chief marketing officer at CCP, said he thought it took console developers time for them to see the success PC games were having with the model, before they started thinking in the same direction.

"So now the console guys are saying that this is a big opportunity. You can argue that if they had a way to monetize 'Call of Duty' differently, then youíd have a lot more people playing and a lot of people willing to pay more than $60.

"It is a bit of a foreign concept, having a game with five or 10 million players, with 80-plus per cent never spending any money. In the console space that has never happened. But we are seeing the change happen.

"We are living it right now. It happens faster on the PC than on the console, but the console guys are watching it very closely and will be involved a lot more with the next generation," Reid said.

How much of an influence do you believe free-to-play will have in the next-generation of consoles?
Great. I can't wait to get my free copy of Modern Warfare 4 next year, put it into my PS4, and find out I need to separately purchase every gun for only £5 each.

Sounds like a living hell for singleplayer fans

Also I hate using actual cash to buy everything in game, especially with this shitty economy

lol @ the idea consoles are going away and adapting to F2P

Yeah, in the future consoles will probably go away, but if everyone offers F2P it's gonna cause a mass genocide of game devs.

Or not. I don't know much about the F2P business model other than its free, obviously, and that in-game purchases make up the profit for the devs. If I remember correctly.

This is what I thought. I doubt the next gen will be the last. If anything the F2P console market will grow slowly, it won't just 100% happen in one generation.

ADD and can't focus on reading at the moment. Just read the title and a bit of the thing.

In one way it does make sense to me. Technology of consoles can't really advance much further when you think about it, and they can always update consoles.

Well I'm a PC gamer now anyway so errrr burn consoles(:

F2P is a a great move if done correctly, If there is no way for people to spend money the game will fail because they wont have any income. My best example of success is League of Legends.

Plus the next gen console have been in development for a little while now and the hardware is already "obsolete" in comparison to PC latest hardware.

Just my opinion.

Hardware for consoles is always going to be worse than that of a powerful PC. That's never really going to effect sales.

"That's never really going to effect sales."

What really puts a lot of PC gamers in drive is the fact that consoles have hardware that could pass daily entertainment for cave men and they want the best visuals. I know a lot of people who retired buying from the console market because of what PC's have to offer.

There was a time however when consoles were more powerful then pc's and those were the early retro days.

The problem is that, even though you know a lot of people who forsook console gaming for high-end PCs, the fact of the matter is there are hundreds of regular people who own consoles because they can only afford consoles. They're content with the tech packed in the console because it works for them and plays the games they want. It's good enough.
