Console doomsayers have been saying that with the revitalization of the PC market and the expansion of mobile gaming, the console market won’t be around for a long time, and this view has been catching on, to say the least. However, PS4 designer Mark Cerny thinks otherwise. Cerny says the console market is here to stay.

When Cerny was asked if traditional gaming consoles such as the PS4, Wii U and Xbox One still have a place in the market, he said, “Of course they do.”

“If you look at the set of people who have smartphones and the subset of them that play games on their smartphones, it is enormous,” Cerny told Kotaku. “And games as a result have had explosive growth on tablets… Within that context, console gaming becomes a smaller portion and so it’s very easy for the analysts to question if consoles have a role. Of course they do. It’s a huge fanbase. It’s just that the rest of the world is now coming in.”

What do you guys think? Would you still want to buy the new PlayStation, say, ten years down the line?

    I hope so but if not then there will be a huge market for people like me who still would like to play games as I do now. I might shell out a few hundred just to play games as they were meant.
