The console war is over and everyone lost
Try as I might to turn my back on the games industry (where I worked for many years), I can’t help but be drawn in by stats and news of weird and wonderfully juvenile bugs in new games. Stats like the ones published by Visual Capitalist showing the rise of the mobile phone as the dominant platform du jour. My eye, however, is drawn to the bottom of the vis and the relative decline of console gaming revenues compared to PC games – not, in all honesty, what I expected. And given the outrageous price of the new Playstations and Xboxes arriving this Christmas, a trend I suspect will continue.
