Games developer says next gen consoles are doomed to fail.
Sidhe Studios dev Mario Wynands has quite alarmingly posted on NeoGAF, saying something very outrageous. The developer feels that the next generation consoles are bound to fail.
“My general opinion is this next console generation is going to fail,” he said. “The infrastructure for retail sales is crumbling, console platform manufactuers are still wanting to control content and prices too much, and the shift to other platforms (of consumers and dev support) in the meantime has been significant (my reasoning is more nuanced, but those are the big ticket items).”
Those are pretty tall claims, but also nothing we haven’t been hearing in recent days. It’s highly unlikely that if the consoles are marketed right, they’ll be anything close to failures.
