Welcome to our second episode of Next Gen News in 2013. We’re two for two. Off to a great start! And yes, we're patting our own backs (no judging!).

This week we get serious (sort of) and discuss recent claims that home video games consoles – your Xbox's and PlayStation's – will be going the way of the dodo in near future. Like, right after Microsoft and Sony release their next-gen successors. Some people think phones, tablets and PCs are making home consoles obsolete and they will be phased out in as little as a decade. We humbly disagree and voice our opinions why. Spoiler: it has a lot to do with the word “exclusive.”

And for those who come for the LoLs, we still fit in a few penis jokes. So don’t panic.
