Microsoft sees no future in portable gaming consoles

Posted on Tuesday, June 28 2011 @ 22:20:14 CEST by

Microsoft executive Dennis Durkin revealed the software giant does not believe in portable gaming consoles, and doubts Sony's PS Vita will garner success.
"I am not sure I would want to be launching a dedicated portable device right now into that market. I think the DS - if you look at the 3DS, certainly versus people’s expectation's it’s not been as successful as people would have thought. So that’s a very crowded market and a very, very red ocean right now with a lot of change happening. So I’m not sure it's [a good idea]," said Dennis Durkin, corporate vice president, chief operating & financial officer of interactive entertainment (Xbox) business at Microsoft, in an interview with IndustryGamers web-site.

Honestly they're right on this one. Smartphones will play games as well as many other things. Portable gaming machines will die off as smartphones take over. And it will be fast too, 2013 and the portable gaming device of choice will be a phone.
