Is the next gaming crash near?

I'm sure everyone knows, the industry once crashed so hard that Nintendo saved it by a hair with the NES. The gaming market today is looking very similar to what it did before the last crash. Same-y games, not many fresh ideas, publishers rushing developers, etc, etc. They say history repeats itself, so do you think another crash might be imminent?

I would venture to say that dedicated gaming consoles and handhelds are possibly in danger because "casual" gamers have other means to play games such as their phones and tablets.

But even without the competition from those devices, I think it's safe to say that gaming technology has reached its peak. So the future of gaming (at least again, for dedicated gaming machines) after this new generation is certainly hazy.

With so many publishers bleeding cash for AAA games, and with so many companies going under, I expect a crash this gen

Maybe for home consoles, but handhelds are looking pretty safe right now. Brilliant libraries.

Yeah but handhelds are being threatened by iPhone games and tablet games. Part of the reason DS was so successful was because that was the handheld of choice for casual gamers since phones didn't really have popular mobile games back in the early and mid-2000's. But now those people can get their gaming fix with iPhone and tablet and flash games, eliminating a significant chunk of the consumer base for dedicated gaming handheld devices.

I agree, hopefully the Vita picks up since I really enjoyed the PSP

Not necessarily, while it's true that iPhones, Androids, and other phone products have been gaining a lot of steam lately, I still wouldn't count out the dedicated gaming handhelds. Remember, when the 3DS first launched? For months many critics and Analysts were ready to claim that the 3DS flopped, but once the right games came, the 3DS exploded, selling faster than the DS, and may possibly even outsell it at the rate its going. It shows that while the iPhone gaming will produce some close competition, it'll take a lot more to really kill dedicated handhelds

I hope so. I love my Vita and look forward to getting a 3DS.

The majority of the good games for the Vita are pretty niche so it sucks for people who aren't willing to try out new things. I'm hoping Muramasa Rebirth gets a good amount of sales though.

As for the iPod/phone thing, I think the DS' casual fanbase will stimulate a good amount of sales for the 3DS, as well as a lot of the dedicated Nintendo gamers buying it. Look at the amount of people on this forum who own a 3DS, and the amount who own a Wii U. It's definitely doing a lot better.

Announcements for WiiU upcoming look pretty good. At the same time, I don't doubt the crash.

I was actually thinking about this the other day. I'm towards yes, it will most likely happen. Not much new and innovative games and game genres and such.
