    Portables, not home consoles, will dominate next-gen, says Yakuza creator

    Yakuza and Binary Domain creator Toshihiro Nagoshi sees next-gen consoles holding a smaller market share than PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii managed, as portable and PC gaming take centre stage.
    Asked by PSM3 how he sees the industry evolving over the next decade, the Sega veteran said: "Well, the first thing is that consoles - PS3, PS4, Xbox 360-2 - the market for those will get smaller, and the main market will become portable games."I don't think consoles will disappear, but more and more people will use home PCs for gaming, and a long time in the future it will just be PCs and mobile phones, and eventually mobiles will become just as powerful as games consoles."
    Compared to the simplicity of iPhone controls, Nagoshi thinks that pad complexity may push consumers away from consoles.
    "The most important and unavoidable thing is the interface. Right now, that means either buttons or touchscreens. Those are the only two interfaces we have. I think it's strange the number of buttons has increased and never decreased. So that means we need to reset things, somehow. Like I was saying earlier, I think the answer lies in some as-yet unknown third type of interface."

    If console gaming does end up being eliminated, I would go the PC route and not the mobile route. I just don't enjoy mobile gaming that much.

    I would think the people that only play casual/mobile games would want to jump to a console/portable/PC for a better experience...eventually.

    I love, love, LOVE my PSP, but if that is the future and I'll never be able to have a home console, then yes, I will too join the PC gaming legion.

    We have a PSP-3000, a 3DS, a DS Lite, Gameboy Advance, iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad (and my son is now buying a Vita). But I just don't find them that fun. They are great for passing time in the airport and on the plane. But other than that. they just don't do it for me. But I can see the appeal..obviously...millions are sold each year.

    There are more pick up and play titles on phones/handheld but when you want a full gaming experience then you can't beat PC or Console gaming. It's fair to say that mobile gaming will definitely increase in popularity but no way will it dominate the industry.

    Bull**** if you count actual games like those you find on the 3DS and Vita. Ipod touch/ipad/smartphones don't count under that metric.

    more and more people will use home PCs for gaming
    More people already use home PCs for their gaming versus home consoles. By about 200 million more people, but piracy is the detrimental factor sadly.

    They won't dominate but they will continue to take chunks of market share. Just as consoles are taking from the PC community.

    I can't see myself going fully handheld...ever. The controls just aren't there and I don't like small screens. It just won't work with someone like myself.

    This will probably be the case, but the thing is the market is ever expanding so I doubt it will be too much of an issue

    I can't see them dominating, maybe it's just me...but I don't like playing games on the go most of the time. I would prefer to just take some time at the end of the day and play something at home.
