Metal Gear Solid creator predicts death of consoles

Posted on Sunday, April 11 2010 @ 12:36:04 CEST by

Hideo Kojima, the creator of the popular Metal Gear Solid game series, believes the console is dying and that the future of video gaming will be on networks that don't depend on any platform. Something similar to what he describes is being pioneered by companies like OnLive, these type of services offer gaming-on-demand via cloud computing, all the heavy lifting is performed on the server side, so even advanced games can be played on devices with relatively low-end hardware specifications.
"In the near future, we'll have games that don't depend on any platform," Kojima said at a news conference announcing the latest installment in a game saga that began in 1987.

"Gamers should be able to take the experience with them in their living rooms, on the go, when they travel -- wherever they are and whenever they want to play. It should be the same software and the same experience," he said.

Both consoles and PC's have a place in the market. And each will trade features with the other where cost and market demand make it possible.
