GameView Special Report: The Gaming Industry And Its Inevitable Future
2011 has been an interesting year for the gaming industry. Microsoft, Nintendo, and Sony, otherwise known as "The Big Three", have introduced competing controllers and consoles for the inevitable future.
"You can't ignore the fact that we will still be making games for the Wii," commented a representative for Nintendo. "Though most gamers would like to." The Wii U, the next generation, will feature a new controller and new high definition resolution for all of Nintendo's old franchises. "The Wii U is the next step in introducing gamers to experiences that have been done to death."
Microsoft, however, has no plans for a new console, as one representative puts it, "we still have a kick-ass product that we are proud of, no matter what people think."
Sony has endured outages for its Playstation Network and endless updates for the Playstation 3. But, as one developer puts it, "that doesn't change the fact that our Blu-ray technology still can't provide a game with shorter loading times."
All of the game developers have promised that the future of games is bound to come, and they will be there to pave the way for new technologies, new experiences, and new gamer frustrations.
