After Hours: The Death of Video Game Consoles?

Kenny and LaughingMan stumble across a rather alarming Forbes article about the potential future demise of traditional video game consoles. Additionally, they find a quote in which President of Sony Worldwide development studios Shuhei Yoshida blames current decline in console gaming not on the consoles themselves, but the current generation of gamers.

Being long-time gamers, Kenny and LaughingMan have some choice words about the subject. Is it really the current generation of tablet and mini-game gamers that is hurting the console industry? Are the current generation of consoles simply not doing enough to keep gamers interested? Kenny and LaughingMan believe it to be several problems that currently plague the current generation, and will continue to do so in the next: Bloated budgets that lead to a lack in creativity, and game consoles themselves becoming glorified Netflix boxes.

LaughingMan

The loveable lunatic with the foul mouth and the iconic laugh, Laughingman is the founder of CCS. With more coffee than copper in his bloodstream, he's a full-time website developer by day, and a gamer, editor, and fiction writer by night.

Kenny

Born in the stomach of a whale in a small fishing town in Antarctica, Kenny knew that his life mission would be to end world hunger, save Tibet, and finally learn how to dougie. Instead, he ended up studying law and writing the "Food For Thought" article series for CheshireCatStudios.com. One day, he hopes to become President of Brazil and blow up the moon.
