American global technology company Nvidia posted a record breaking earnings and spoke about what it has in store for its future. CEO of Nvidia, Jen-Hsun during his talks of gaming consoles, stated that the “hey days of the past” are over for consoles. During his talks, he was faced with a question how Nvidia’s cycle compares to the consoles.

Jen-Hsun stated, “My sense is that the game console platform is not likely to enjoy the hay days when it was really unambiguously the only and the best game platform to enjoy games. It’s just not true anymore. There are just too many other ways to enjoy games.”

Jen-Hsun went on and elaborated on how statistics speak for itself and how PC gaming has overtaken the consoles, especially in China ” The PC has become the world’s largest game platform. China, the developing countries around the world, PC is a piece of platform they already own. They can upgrade it two, three, four times without having to change the basic platform. So the total of cost of ownership of a game PC is quite attractive.”

He further elaborated, “And so I think that there’s too many other ways to enjoy games now, for the game console to enjoy the hay days of the past. But we’ll see. The thing that I do know is this, without any question is that the PC is continuing to expand the number of titles. Great titles are coming to the PC. It’s is continuing to grow and the quality of titles is growing up ever so fast.”

    An obvious statement from a company that is not part of this console generation.

      Lol. His statements aren’t much in err, tho. Me personally I’ll always buy a console if available. My opinion; gaming will be played over TVs, Monitors, Phones n Tablets, without any system underneath, in the next 15 years.

    • RogerThat

      because they refused to power them since MS and Sony went to them before AMD and the asking price is too low, so Nvidia said it doesnt even worth it, the profit margin is too low.

  • Jijo Mathew

    He spoken the truth. Just google guys PC gaming sales surpassed the consoles and growing.

  • Sin Lee

    Not only that, long time games that has been on the console are moving to the PC.

    Dead or Alive 5 Last Round
    Metal Gear Solid Phantom Pain & Ground Zero
    Final Fantasy XIII, XIII-2, Lightning Returns and eventually Final Fantasy XV
    Sunset Overdrive
    Dead Rising 3
    Valkyrie Chronicles
    Ryse: Son of Rome
    Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
    Tekken 7
    Grand Theft Auto V

    Microsoft and Sony pretty much done themselves in when they made their “Next-Gen” console similar to the PC. Making the port over much easier, that it just doesn’t make sense for not releasing it on the PC platform now.
