    Not going to happen.

    SONY has been screaming "10yr product cycle" over and over lately. You wont see a new Playstation for at least 5yrs in my opinion.

    For the next generation of gaming I am hoping that Google makes a console. They do pretty much everything else now and Android should be able to pull it off as well.

    I think Gaming Consoles are dying out now. I think the new revolution in technology belongs to the Smart Phone era. So much has happened over the past two years with Smart Phones; the industry moves a lot faster than the Gaming Industry does. However, when a new gaming console comes out, the level of technology seems to surpass anything even imaginable.

    That's just my two cents.

    Sorry but I 100% disagree. I think PC gaming may be slowly dying, but console gaming is constantly growing. XB360/PS3/WII sales are through the roof, and in more homes than ever. They're constantly expanding the social/gamer boundaries, not to mention becoming media centers.

    They're growing faster than mobile gaming still, for sure. Although Mobile Gaming is starting to get a foothold. They may be moving faster, but they're still not as big for the "constant" user. People may be playing a TON of mobile games, but very few people play exclusively on that, and it will be a lONG time before they can come anywhere NEAR as close to the power of a xb360/wii/ps3 in a compact design.

    I would like to see the gamer's smartphone. Great specs plus great controls. And the games should be promoted on TV. Apple: I mean real games, not the Sims.

    I don't see consoles going anywhere. More downloadable content and app tie ins, etc. I they will be around for awhile.

    Im going to have to agree with the majority... consoles arent going anywhere, anytime soon. Way too much money to be made for them to wrap it up and call it quits...

    2012 is the date for the next next gen consoles haha. The new xbox is expected to be released in 2012. I recommend getting an xbox over a playstation. Its wayyyy more competitive and fun IMO. Yes you have to pay to play online, but it is worth every penny.

    I've got a PS3 and a Wii, no intentions of getting an Xbox360. I previously had an Xbox and a PS2, and the Xbox just gathered dust. But yeah, consoles aren't going anywhere, not with the gaming industry making more than the movie industry.

    so what i am about to post has no evidence at all and I really dont feel like looking into it that much, but ill post what ive heard anyways. I heard or read somewhere... I dont really remember... that microsoft is probably going to just be releasing some kind of add on or update for the 360s because of how often the 360s broke down... take that and do what you want with it...

    I couldn't disagree with more. I agree the Sony PS3 and Xbox 360 have life in them yet, but to suggest they are dying out is ridiculous. There is too much money and demand in the business, a next generation console has to arrive, be it in 2012, or 2015.


    Plenty of suggested concepts being posted around the net...

    We have the original XBox, Wii and I just got a PS3 for Christmas. It's unfortunate that I despise Sony and Microsoft so much, because they put out some awesome looking games. I believe my son will be getting a 360 for his birthday this summer (so he can play Fable 2 :rolleyes:). My wife is tired of hearing him beg for one....LOL. He's a good kid who gets good grades, so the begging really has no influence on our decision to buy him one.

    I can't see consoles going anywhere either, but I would love to see improvements continue on the mobile side of the spectrum.

    That's pretty much the boomerang controller the PS3 was originally supposed to ship with, before Sony gave in to public opinion.

    Yeah, like everyone said, the only console expected for 2012 is the new Xbox...

    The only new thing to come out soon is the Nintendo DS 3D. Microsoft and Sony are both imagining a "relaunch" for PS3 (w/Playstation Move) and the 360 (with Project Natal). I doubt we will see anything new for at LEAST a few years. If there are any surprises at E3 though, I'll be sure to get footage/pics and post here :D
