This article is too funny. The creator of Doom & Quake made a few absurd comments in an article when talking about the future of gaming. here is a little snippet:

"My prediction is that the game console in the vein of the PS3 and Xbox 360 is going to either undergo a massive rethink or go away altogether."

"The Wii has the perfect design for a console that doesn't pretend to be a PC and is geared more toward casual gamers than hardcore gamers. The hardcore gamers are going to either be playing on their PCs or a new PC-like platform that sits in the living room but still serves the whole house over Wi-Fi, even the video signal."

ummm, i think that the pc-like platform is already established.....it is called a gaming console, aka PS3 and Xbox360 lol

This article will easily unite the PS3 & 360 fanboys :)

Here is the link to the whole article if anyone wants a nice chuckle:

yeah no kidding. plus, hasn't pc gaming been around just as long as gaming consoles? i don't remember there being a decline every year in gaming console sales and buzz, in fact, gaming consoles are selling hotter every year....oh no, here comes the doom train lol

I must stand alone as I've never been able to retire the urge to sit down at a PC to game. I like consoles too. But I think I may always prefer the PC. I can't even explain why. Probably just an old habit. I was messing around on a Commodore back in the 80's as a little kid. My parents never bought me a NES. Never bought Super-NES, no Atari. None of that. I bought a Genesis as my first console because I loved Mortal Kombat. And PS1 was HUGE in college. But there's always the draw of the really in-depth games that use all the buttons on the keyboard for different functions.
