Microsoft or Sony To Quit Console Race?
 

 
Cloud gaming service Gaikai has made the bold prediction that either Sony or Microsoft will quit the console race during E3. Speaking at CES, Gaikai chief product officer Nanea Reeves claimed that "not all of the current console makers will have one more generation. That will be the big news at E3."

This is, to put it mildly, a controversial point of view. It's worth noting that Gaikai's business relies on cloud gaming, so having one less console to compete with would be in the company's best interest. For that reason, this prediction should be taken with a huge grain of salt, especially as rumors about new consoles continue to fly.

This comes just twenty-four hours after Sony's Kaz Harai said that a PlayStation 4 won't be at E3. In Gaikai's view, it could be that a new Sony console isn't coming at all.

Definitely false IMO, although if it was one of the two, it would have to be Sony after this current generation.

yeah I would think IF one of them quit it would be Sony also because Sony the company as a whole is bleeding money profusely... they can't afford many more multi Million dollar loses...or even Billions (if they get hacked again and go down for 2 months)...i'm not saying this will happen BUT if it is true I wouldn't be surprised if Sony is the one that quits...

Yeah, that's what I meant as well, Sony as a company has been taking shots in multiple departments. Definitely doubt it, and I hope not, I'd be severely disappointed if we lost Playstation anytime soon. That would be awful for the industry.

Why can't it happen? I mean If this has any weight to it, why wouldn't one of the companies want to drop out and put their power behind steam? Granted that they do release a console type device.



Steam now hosts more than 40 million accounts and 1,800 games, and its 2011 year-over-year sales increased 100 percent for the seventh year in a row, Valve announced today with a ridiculously smug grin on its face (we a.ssume). During the Holiday Sale, Steam clocked more than 5 million simultaneous users -- in perspective, that's easily more people than the entire population of Norway, all on Steam at the same time.

Steam served over 780 petabytes of data to gamers in 2011, more than doubling the amount delivered in 2010, Valve reported. More than 19 million items were traded in-game, Valve president Gabe Newell said, and he promised that more free-to-play titles will be launched in 2012 to supplement the 18 Steam already hosts.

Newell hasn't forgotten about Big Picture Mode, Valve's attempt to infiltrate living rooms with a top-boxy device that will offer Steam via controller navigation on "more screens throughout the house." Newell said Valve is "preparing for the launch" of Big Picture Mode, so we're guessing we can expect to see something concrete by 2015.

I could see microsoft stepping back from the whole out-do each other sh*t, microsoft now has a lock on it's fanbase, they release a xbox 3 with kinect 2.0 filled with all that multimedia horse sh*t and it will sell like hotcakes.

but quitting consoles? No, they will just become more and more like a computer until one day we start swapping out gpus and adding extra ram.

^^^^ if they dont end up quitting they will end up partnering up with somebody like apple or google to make a set-top box gaming device, instead of a gaming device that can substitute as one.

Nintendo is out of the picture, M$ even though they took hits in the xbox department with the red ring its not enough to tank the brand, Sony on the other hand not only were they bleeding money from the ps3, but the psp, its tvs etc.

I truely hope no one bows out truthfully, competition runs the gaming industry.

Microsoft is one of the richest company in the world and just coming off with a very good year due to Microsoft word, window 7, kinect and 360 success.

Sony is going down in a downward spiral losing money in every market they going except for ps3 which is keeping them afloat. Its easy to pick Sony due to their current financial problem.

I want to look this from a True Gamers angle, just hear me out. Sony and Microsoft arent going anywhere because the fallout would be catastrophic. Lets talk about Nintendo, since I've been coming in here mothafu*kas hardly ever mention the Wii. You know why? Cause True Gamers like everybody in here dont even consider it a next gen console. We start f!ghts in this bi*ch arguing over pointless views about Sony vs Microsoft. Aint none of us really checking for the Wii, I have not seen a thread about mothafu*kas who cant wait for the release date of any Wii games. Just today there was a thread about Ghost Recon getting delayed, because that game matters to True Gamers.

From a True Gamers view TO ME, Nintendo has already bowed out! The Wii sold the most, cant argue with that. Just because it sold the most dont mean its the best. Nintendo bowed out to True Gamers when they targeted none gamers. Nintendo was like "fu*k true gamers lets sell our sh*t to soccer moms and librarians and sh*t" Just look at the games that have come out on the Wii, for every good Mario game theirs 15 bad ones and another 20 that shouldnt have been thought of. Some of these games the developers at Nintendo just gave the fu*k up. They knew soccer moms and 6 year olds dont know the difference between a average game and a sh*tty game. When I read gaming mags I look at the ratings of Wii games I see 4's and 5's. Nintendo did this. When game drops on all consoles pay attention to what's said about the one on the Wii.

Now I have to give credit were credit is due Nobodies beating Nintendo when it comes to hand helds.

Couldn't have said it any better myself. Pretty graphics and an early start isn't going to make up for a loss that big. Nintendo's going to have to pull out all the stops, develop a stellar 3rd party as well as first party, lineup. They need games that not only look better than the HD twins of this generation, but play better. That pad needs to be used to it's fullest extent, it can't just be another peripheral that will gather dust on your shelf while you break out uncharted, halo, or gears. We don't need something that will last a few months, we need a console that will last a few years, if not a lifetime. Nintendo has to come through this year at e3, or they've lost a big part of their crowd.
