What will the game consoles of the future look like?
Listen, we love the Xbox One and Playstation 4. Trying to choose which console is better is like trying to choose whether we want chocolate cake or chocolate ice cream for dessert. They’re both freaking delicious. But the idea that a game system will one day look like the floating black monolith in Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey (Google it, gentlemen!) sends euphoric waves of happiness through our cerebellum.
Any idea that game consoles are heading for extinction is nonsense. Consoles will never go the way of the arcade, despite what the naysayers, (bah!), say…
According to Xbox head Phil Spencer, more Xbox Ones have been sold globally than Xbox 360s (in the same period). It’s a robust industry that’s come a long way since the days of Pong (1972).
As gaming technology evolves, so do our hardware fantasies. We want more from our machines. We want a Matrix-style gaming experience. So, what will our consoles look like in the future? Here are some trends to watch.

1. One of the biggest beefs gamers have with Xbox One and Playstation 4 is that neither system has next generation resolution. When “Titanfall” was released, it only ran at 792p. There were old Xbox 360 games running at a higher resolution.

And the same holds true with Playstation 4. The development team in charge of “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt,” one of the most hotly anticipated games of 2015, can’t promise 1080 HD graphics. “We will hit 900p no problem,” said executive producer John Mamais. Well guess what… gamers don’t want 900p. They want 1080, and then some.

We want more resolution like Will Farrell wants more cowbell. Yee-haw!
2. Is it possible there will come a day when we never have to purchase video games again? Is it possible that games will be accessible via a cloud service? Maybe, my friends. Maybe. ‘OnLive’ was a step in that direction, but too bad, it doesn’t exist anymore.
3. Will virtual reality finally become a reality? Improved VR hardware capabilities might finally impact the gaming industry. Oculus Rift, a VR mounted display featuring a massive field view, quick response head tracking, and immersive 3D capabilities, has already been showcased at numerous gaming conventions. The device is like something out of a William Gibson novel. Gamers love it.

As Morpheus told Neo… “Free your mind.”
