Personally I think consoles will always be around, even hundreds of years from now. They'l just be a little different and perhaps smaller than what they are now.

"People foolishly think that everything that exists now exists forever."

You know that doesn't really help your argument, right? :-)

I think consoles will go away sadly, and gaming will become "here is a house, pay $1.99 to open door". You won't have a choice really if you want to play new games, they will monitize everything, just be ready to stop playing new games I guess.

It's ironically idiotic when you hear people say how the Iphones or Ipads or tablets will takeover the movie and gaming industry. I've yet to see anyone watch a movie all the way to the end on a phone or tablet and the same for games. So I find it extremely unlikely these two products will takeover anything of this nature.

Looking at his photo on the site he's obviously drunk/stoned or mentally challenged, with that kind of face though it's anyone's guess.

He hasn't had anything to do with that series in YEARS. Since the first one, I believe. That's as far as his involvement went. I don't know why they keep interviewing Jaffe except maybe that the people writing the interview think it's hilarious.

In the end, I think the "console market" will shift completely towards portable devices which can be sync'd or hooked up to a big screen tv, but this will be further down the line than 10 years.

I don't see the advantages of streaming your games. I don't see how PC's would replace consoles either. PC gaming still has the same strengths/weaknesses its always had, and that doesn't seem about to change in the next ten years. This guy is just a knucklehead who likes the attention he can get by making an outrageous statement.

I can barely get a decent enough wireless connection IN MY HOUSE to watch Netflix on my ipad. We are a LONG way away from streaming games to the mainstream US unless some drastic changes are made to the infrastructure. At peak hours I'm back in 1997 in terms of my internet speeds. And I don't live in South Dakota.

Oh and Jaffe is a very large tool.
