Kojima predicts platform-agnostic gaming future

Metal Gear creator advocates a "near future" where software doesn't rely on a single console, is highly portable.

At a Konami press conference in Japan yesterday, Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima laid out a ranging assortment of product placements and crossover tie-ins for his studio's latest creation, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. In addition to the inclusion of brands, such as Axe body wash and Doritos, the portable title will pack scenarios and levels inspired by Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed, Capcom's Monster Hunter, and Square Enix's Front Mission Evolved.

Beyond unveiling additional revenue streams for the game, Reuters reports that the venerated game designer also took the opportunity to espouse his vision for a platform-agnostic future.

"In the near future, we'll have games that don't depend on any platform," Kojima said. "Gamers should be able to take the experience with them in their living rooms, on the go, when they travel--wherever they are and whenever they want to play. It should be the same software and the same experience."

Reuters did not indicate what kind of game-delivery service Kojima had in mind. However, his vision sounds similar to that of OnLive's on-demand game-streaming service, which is set to go live in North America on June 17. The service allows gamers to play technologically intensive games on any PC or Mac with a speedy online connection, regardless of the game's technical demands. The company has also said that an iPhone app and HDTV-compatible microconsole will also be available. [/QUOTE]

Cloud computing will more than likely be the future think stem but as a console that plugs into your TV with nintendo,sony and MS selling their stuff online. The trouble is its going to be another 10-20 years before that will be possible on the USA's limited nation wide broadband. So for now until they can stream data more effectively the game industry will put up with the risk and cost of producing their own hardware.

The DVD forum is/was made of 3 or 4 main sub groups , the gaming companies can come together and do the same type of profit sharing while only really competing in software and peripheral sales.

But looking at the cost of production and the risk of taking care of what you make I think the console war model will continue for the next decade easily while stream and digital sales are refined more and more.

Whatever they do they should raise physical goods by 50%(max price 80USD) and knock 50% off digital goods(max price 29USD) this way whatever they are selling in the intrem they will still make a profit hand over fist.


Ah modern gaming its like modern film only the watering down of fiction and characters is replaced with shallow and watered down mechanics, gimmicks and shiny-er "people".
