When should we wait for the ninth generation of gaming consoles?

Any self-respecting gamer knows that all game consoles are divided into generations without exception. At the moment, for example, the game consoles of the eighth generation, which began in 2012, include Nintendo Wii U, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One (as well as their upgraded configurations – PS4 Pro and Xbox One X). Many people ask themselves: when do we wait for the console of the ninth generation? Let's listen to what the leading analysts of the gaming industry, the heads of major gaming publishers think about this, and just reflect on this topic.

The Nintendo Wii U console was born at the end of 2012 and was very unusual from a technical point of view. A hefty gamepad with a built-in screen made the gameplay very fresh in sensations. I remember how I spent wonderful evenings with my family and friends in the virtual worlds of Nintendo. However, this enthusiasm was not shared by all gamers. It turned out that the Japanese publisher had saved a lot on hardware, which made the PlayStation 4 much better than the Wii U in terms of graphics quality and special effects. Yes, and the game line of Nintendo was rather meager, although it included several excellent games. But the most evil joke with this console was played by the fact that an unsuccessful advertising campaign confused the customers who believed that the Wii U was just an extra accessory for the previous Wii console. As a result, in a few years of existence, the prefix sold a ridiculous circulation of 15 million boxes, after which it was withdrawn from production.

Sony after not the most successful for itself the seventh generation, which began for her in failure, as a result of which the company suffered huge losses, the right to make a mistake simply did not have. A competent advertising campaign, a good starting line of video games, carefully designed PS4 hardware, which at the time responded to all market requirements, and a low price of $ 399 did their job. After coming on sale in November 2013, the consoles began to snap like hot cakes. The Japanese played a hand in the fact that Microsoft "lost its way" and tried to turn its next console into a media center with a built-in TV tuner.

Microsoft has not only lost with the TV functions of its console, it also planned to prohibit the resale of video games, trying to defeat the "secondary market" that they disliked, and to force all of its users to be connected to the Internet around the clock to avoid the possibility of piracy in case of hacking Xbox One hackers. The cost of the console was $ 100 higher than the PS4, as in the kit there was a sensor Kinect 2.0 (now dead and all forgotten, like many other Microsoft projects). In addition, Sony has strongly outstripped the Redmond company in terms of developing its new console and games for it, so the audience had to present the Xbox One in a hurry: the starting line of games was simply not yet ready.

Since then, a lot of water has flowed under the bridge. The market has put everything in its place. Nintendo Wii U, with all its pluses was not necessary to anyone, Xbox One took the second place in the race, and Sony became the undoubted leader of the industry again. The eighth generation became extremely unusual, because it was during his birth that the first intermediate models of game consoles appeared. I mean PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X. Manufacturers decided to design more powerful models of consoles, capable of giving a resolution of 4K in the color range of HDR, as well as more impressive special effects in already released games of the current generation. Earlier similar attempts to smooth out the shortcomings of the aging iron in the gaming industry was not. Unless Sega company is remembered, which released for its Sega Mega Drive first disk drive Sega CD, and then the expansion of the Sega 32X.

But everyone understands that sooner or later it must happen: full-fledged game consoles of the new ninth generation will emerge. In principle, the first swallow can be called the Nintendo Switch, but Nintendo itself positions its offspring as something that stands outside generations (many consider Switch to the current eighth generation). We have already told you in detail about this remarkable hybrid set-top box in its detailed review . Now things at this console are just wonderful and the manufacturer is barely able to cope with the constantly growing demand. But we all understand that most gamers are waiting for the next move from Microsoft and Sony. Historically, it is exactly between these two giants that the main confrontation takes place within the console game industry.

Well-known analyst Matt Piskatella of NPD, who has been studying the trends of the game industry and the state of this market for many years, believes that Sony will not release its PlayStation 5 before 2020. But Matt also does not exclude that the Japanese can quite make the move of the horse, as happened in 2013, when quite unexpectedly for all they presented the PS4, ahead of their American competitors and caught them off guard. In fact, the sales of the current PlayStation model are just fine, and to date, over 80 million PS4 consoles have been sold worldwide. Microsoft's console is sold about twice as bad, and the company has long ceased to publish data on sales. Apparently, shy.

Another analyst Lewis Ward of IDC is betting on the year 2021. It was then, in his opinion, Microsoft and Sony will introduce their new gaming consoles to the world. There are more bold assumptions. For example, some experts suggest that at the end of this year or early 2019 Sony can show us what their new console will be. Moreover, work on it has been going on for several years, and it started almost after the release of PS4 in 2013. This was confirmed officially by representatives of the Japanese company. If so, then it's silly to think that Microsoft engineers are idle. Having lost the dry in the current generation, Redmond will do everything that depends on them, to recoup the next.

Already, Microsoft is trying to create a reserve for the future for its new console. But if Sony does it through the opening of new studios, the creation of new IP and the development of existing franchises, and also focusing on the development of exclusive games like Death Stranding, Horizon Zero Dawn , Detroit: Become Human, God of War, Spider Man, Last of Us : Part II, Days Gone, Bloodborne and others, Microsoft chose the typical way for American business. Redmond company has begun to buy up ready-made franchises and to redeem the exclusivity of projects of third-party studios. This has already happened with Minecraft and PUBG, it is possible that in the near future we will hear more than once that Microsoft acquired with the guts of some major developer gaining success. However, how effective will this method be to win the love of the gaming community – only time will show.

Representatives of major game publishers uniquely know something that we do not know, mere mortals. For example, Ubisoft president Yves Gilmo said in his February interview that new consoles from Sony and Microsoft should not be expected before two years later. This, again, confirms the analysts' assumptions regarding the release of consoles in 2020-2021. Whether this or this will evolve completely unpredictably is hard to say for the time being. We suggest you discuss and discuss this topic in the comments to this material.

  1. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace It will be a false peace for a period of time You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things They have their plans set in place It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name

    Here is wisdom Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name ” (Revelation 14:9-11)

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast
