Future of the Gaming industry

Thinking that all that talk about X720, PS4, and Wii2 getting 512 Gigabyte hard drives with 7zip self executable games is not reality. X720 will have a HD-DVD-Rom , PS4 will stay with Bluray, and Wii 2 will stick with DVD-ROM again. I have proof. The X360 had a HD-DVD rom accessory. The Panasonic Q had a DVD-ROM. Nobody in the United States wants to download a DVDs worth of data for $60 if they can torrent it for free. The Wii 2 will have the IBM Xenon processor with switchable 729 MHz and 485 MHz speeds to be backwards compatible with Wii and gamecube. Nintendo said they want to copy the x360, stick with the wiimote, and have backwards compatibility.

Since 2006, Wii only had 2 games I wanted to date. Super Paper Mario and Metroid Prime 3. Rest of it is shovelware or released on gamecube. The PS3 will be so expensive that all it's software will be released on it, but not canceled to eventually be released on ps4, because PS4's Open GL Mt. Evans graphics (DirectX 10.1-like) will require new game engines...and any mount of porting from PS3 won't happen. All games will start from scratch.

Thinking that the PS4 and Xbox 720 are going to be based on the G92 and R600 GPU cores respectfully. PS4 will have a Cell Broadband Engine with micro hole drilling to make it 33% faster and Xbox 720 will have a modified Xenon with four cores instead of three.

PC gaming will diminish due to World of Warcraft (DirectX 9 game) being played less than Diablo 2 Lord of Destruction online wise since Diablo 2 is the best selling RPG and the record was set in 2001. You can tell if PC games are getting popular by how Blizzard games turn out due to seems like every American gamer played either Diablo 2 or WoW. The amount of meaningful DirectX 10.1 games will be very slim at best. I'm probably only going to have 4 DirectX 10 games and 1 DirectX 10.1 game. The Geforce 9800 GTX will be DirectX 10.1 certified. Once the Geforce 9800 GTX falls under $200...everybody will stop buying new pc game releases, because everything interesting will have come out. Nvidia will come out with a Geforce 10800 GTX in 2009, but it'll be meaningless In people's are still run great on a Geforce 9800 GTX with 95% of games being still DirectX 7/8/9. People will play the ones they own already. Thinking in 2009 all the pc gamers will ditch pc gaming for current consoles. It's more efficient.
