For the past decade, and even long if you don't count the Xbox, the home gaming segment has been made up of a few, but notable players. While some have come and gone, and others may not have even been announced yet, there is one thing for certain; the next generation of gaming is going to look a lot different than today.
And when I say next-gen gaming, I'm not only referring to consoles. In fact, console gaming will likely become a thing of the past at some point. As to when that occurs, only time will tell, but Microsoft, Amazon, Google, Apple, and also Sony, are seeing a future where expensive consoles are no longer required.
