Next Gen News #139: The Death of Game Consoles

Are gaming consoles heading off into the sunset following the next generation of systems? We investigate.

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.
