Tablets may make video game consoles ”unused”, Cevat Yerli CEO of Crytek warns. As tablets these days keep getting better and better, they may take the spot of home consoles. He believes that the current generation of consoles has gone on too long, and he also believes that gamers soon may reach for their tablets when it comes to game time, instead of regular home consoles.
“The current generations are drying out, and the longer we wait for the next generation of consoles, the higher the likelihood that they could fall behind tablets in terms of being the first thing people reach for when the time comes to play games. Tablets are putting pressure on the gaming industry, and taking over in some ways, so that should be kept in mind.”
I do agree but think its taking over more on handhelds instead. When I see my friends wanting to buy the new iPod or iPad for their mobile gaming, instead of the 3DS. I still don’t understand why people would rather play Angry Birds instead of playing great games you can only find on the 3DS, Such as Mario Kart 7. I usually only play mobile games on my phone when I’m in class during a boring lecture or when I’m at work. I partially agree I just think it’s actually slowly eating away at handhelds rather than consoles. Comment away! -Tommy Robinson
