The next console generation will be the last, says Crytek CE

Lol i doubt that, consoles will move with the times just as phones and computers have, i'm mainly pc gamer but i could never see it being PC only and phones wont ever recreate console experiences and if they do, its because ninty, sony or microsoft has brought out a new phone that streams to your tv and has good controls but the games console would still dominate, in my opinion as long as nintendo are around, consoles wont be going away anytime soon, this is as dumb as saying bluray will be the final format for recorded video, sure we'll have netflix, lovefilm etc but it doesn't mean theres nothing to be made from physical media

I wonder if he'll backtrack over this statement like he did over his comments on second hand games.

Even if he's right (somehow I doubt it), it will be my last time in gaming. The Wii U is the last console for me I reckon. I might backtrack on it if Nintendo bring out another console I like, but no way will I be investing in anything Sony and especially MS have to offer

PErsonally not interested in Wii-U at all unless specs are quite a step up from ps3/360 otherwise my 360/ps3 will just play the same games yet with all my achievements/trophies/friends list.

PS4/720 on the other hand i'm ready for - been playing in 1920*1200 res on PC for years now so it's about time my TV got full use out o it's 1080p res (oh add 60fps and i'm happy).

I find it rather stupid to expect consoles to be replaced by smartphones!

every time this guy opens his mouth crap comes out he wants to go away and make a decent game for a change and not just a graphical demo with all show and no go.

Really consoles are not going to be around, that's interesting because I prefer to play games on my BIG TV and not some little screen. I enjoy using a control pad and relaxing in my nice big sofa with a big mug of coffee and cake. That's gaming to me.

hmmm does he know something the rest of us don't??

Maybe the Mayans were correct - maybe a few years out but still correct! Unless something radical changes I can't see the next gen being the last. Technology will continue to grow, develop and improve so the next gen will reach a point when it will be 'dated'.

a guy who has relesed one shoddy crappy pc port tweaked ito modern warfail says this

believe me im a hardcore gamer, long story short i have abandoned crytek and their opinions are irrelevant and totally non-credible ... i will not buy crysis 3 unless months after the release i will check if its s viable option ... they can do whatever they want with graphics and editor, if the gameplay is a mw clone the game is useless.

stupid statements like these only lower my chances of ever giving a f**k about their codolized multi-port screwed-up games .... crysis 2 was no true PC game neither true console game ... but wtf is true on the 360 anyway ... all broken pc ports sticked on analog controls, thats why i play nintendo only ... the age of analog FPS is finally over.

"Today's gamers buy a game for 99 cents, download it and play it for 15 to 20 minutes per day over a period of two months, and then they move on."

Well,I've heard about a game called... Call of duty. Yes, COD for short. A "few" people play it, and a "little" more than 20 minutes a day I think ...

COD on a phone or tablet, give me a break. :roll:

I think it will be a lot more to do with how the publishers want to sell their games, developing hardware like consoles costs a lot of money & they get this back via the games so publishers may ultimately force Sony, Nintendo & Microsofts hand.

Will people continue to pay £250+ for a console with old tech that will be superseded in a couple of years with the upgradability of PC's, i can see Sony maybe integrating the Playstation platform into blu-ray players or having a port on blu-ray players that you plug in a PS5 which contains a CPU & GPU, or maybe has a app that you buy so you just stream the games from a cloud.

I will change before the PS5 & Xbox1440, if the PS4 & X720 are out next year then there will be a six year wait until the PS5 & Xbox1440 would be released so that will be the year 2019 or 2020, just look how powerful the iPhone has got in the last five years & the games it can play, no i am not saying phones will take over but look how small they are compared to the power they pack.

Hmmm i dunno, he may have a point.
