lol - hilarious title when you consider last gen lasted 8 years and this gen will last just as long.

I remember articles like this 10 years ago.
I’m sure i’ll see another like it in another 10 years 😆

Considering that Microsoft and Sony saw fit to release heavily revised versions of their consoles just 3-4 years after their previous ones and Wii U lasted less than 5 years then the title is accurate.

Also even if you assume that PS4 and Xbox One are of one generation, they clearly aren't lasting 8 years. 7 years absolute maximum, end of 2020. Possibly sooner.

cmon mydude, its not x1 and ps4 are different consoles. its not like you have games that run on those and not on their base forms. Also, even if new consoles come out in 2020, what do you think will happen with their predecessors? stop functioning overnight? do you think publishers will release no more games for ps4/X1 after the new kids come to the block? who said a generation ends when the new consoles get released?

poor selling consoles often only last 4-5 years or even less, and an upgraded version of the current system for niche users does nothing to change console life span.

10 years ago you didn't have a PS4 Pro or Xbox One X that came out a mere 4 years after the PS4/XB1

mechlord2122d ago

what do they mean with "rise of pc gaming". was it ever down or dead?
and what do they mean by "shrinking of lifespans of consoles"? dude's been comatose for the last 20 years or so?

i read it, its just a bunch of nonsense and straw man arguments.

It was dieing before steam came along because publishers were having a hardtime fight piracy or so they claimed.

Kiwee Master Kase Sling Bag for the Nintendo Switch review - ChristCenteredGamer

CCG writes - "There’s no doubt about it. The Kiwee Master Kase Sling Bag is a very nice carrying case. However, it’s the most expensive one we’ve reviewed, hands down. The asking price is $99 shipped. That’s half the price of the Switch lite! For comparison, the PDP Pokemon Commuter case is just as roomy, and a third of the price. Though it’s not as versatile in size, not as professional looking, and it lacks the theater mode. As of this review, the Kiwee Master Kase Sling Bag is available in two colors: black and white."
