Whether we choose to accept it or not, the world around us is changing at such a rapid pace that it’s sometimes hard to keep up. Yesterday’s technology is today’s old news, and what’s hot today will be overtaken before you can blink. Not many industries exemplify such forward movement like the games industry. We are all about change. It used to be cartridges and only single-player, now it’s Blu-ray and multiplayer’s importance has surpassed, by miles, that of the single-player experience. It’s true, all one has to do is check the stats.
In the near future it’ll be all about downloads, as the traditional way we purchase games is slowly but surely dying. I predict in the next ten years traditional retail outlets will fade if they don’t find innovative ideas moving forward, because one will not have to leave his house to purchase a game. And although that option is already available, internet speeds haven’t caught up, at least not in the U.S. and most parts of Europe.
But change is coming, and I believe it’s for the better. I’m looking forward to PS4 and the next Xbox – and even Wii U. I’m looking forward to the future, guys. I simply can’t wait for the new experiences headed our way because, if you didn’t notice, I like change!
Have a bright weekend, Games Thirst! What are you guys up to?
Today it’s all about meetings for me. A few over Skype and about two locally. Later I’ll go hunt me a good game although I have no clue what I’ll be looking for. Tomorrow I’ll do the usual – go to Church, have breakfast with my wife later that day, and relax thereafter.
Thanks! Love you good people, man! Stay blessed!
