I'm not trying to make this a flamebait topic. Bear with me.
So, try to imagine gaming in, e.g. 15 to 20 years in the future.
How do I see it? I can imagine Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo, Steam, and other platforms as apps that we download to our "entertainment system" which runs everything. It may even be embedded to a Smart TV which connects to a cloud and runs the games.
Basically, platforms might cease to exist in the form of "hardware" but will continue to exist in the form of service.
How do you see it?
Will a gaming platform always be "hardware"? Do you still believe a console or a PC as a gaming platform may "die" in the future?
