Nvidia: Console’s heyday is over

The age of the console is over, according to the boss of the world's largest PC gaming GPU provider Nvidia.

My sense is that the game console platform is not likely to enjoy the heydays when it was really unambiguously the only and the best game platform to enjoy games,” CEO Jen-Hsun told investors, as reported by WCCFtech.

It's just not true anymore. There are just too many other ways to enjoy games. Without any question is that the PC is continuing to expand the number of titles. Great titles are coming to the PC. It is continuing to grow and the quality of titles is growing up ever so fast.

The PC has become the world's largest game platform. [In] China [and] developing countries around the world, PC is a piece of platform they already own. They can upgrade it two, three, four times without having to change the basic platform. So the total of cost of ownership of a game PC is quite attractive.”
