Queen's computing expert says PS4, XBox One launches could make end of console gaming

2013-12-09

Queen’s University School of Computing professor Nick Graham is available to comment on the upcoming launch of the new gaming consoles PS4 and Xbox One. The new PlayStation is set for release tomorrow Friday, November 15 and the Xbox One follows Friday, November 22.

Dr. Graham has a unique take on the entire console gaming industry and says there might never be another launch like this one as console gaming is under siege.

“There has been a huge shift from console gaming recently,” says Dr. Graham. “Apple has revealed support for game controllers for the iPhone, Steam offers market leading games at low prices delivered right to your desktop, and the new, inexpensive Android-based Ouya console is vying for living room space. Leading game manufacturers EA and Ubisoft are already investing in games for iPhone and Ouya.”
