Numerous publishers and companies are working on refined game streaming, and projects like Microsoft's xCloud and Google's Stream are close to making that a reality. Where do consoles fit into this? What will the future look like? PlayStation Chairman Shawn Layden recently sat down with Game Informer to discuss exactly that.
Layden said that he sees a "post-console" world where all gamers are connected. Think of it as an extension of game streaming, cross-play, and cross-progression. He said the following.
Layden's comments are interesting and it'll be fascinating to see who comes out on top. Will it be Microsoft? Google? EA? Only time will tell. However, given the push for streaming, it's clear that that is the future of the industry.
