Maybe it’s PC gaming that could fade away, not consoles


For years people have been saying game consoles will become extinct and PC gaming is the future, but I’m starting to think the opposite could come true. Microsoft officially bringing keyboard and mouse support to the Xbox is part of this, it really is a game changer (we probably won’t see/feel the full effects of this move until the next-gen Xbox though). And about sales: in November in the US, for the first time in history, all 3 ‘home’ consoles sold over 1.3 million units each, which is especially impressive when you consider the Xbox One and PS4 aren’t new anymore. People want game consoles more than ever, they’re not fading away at all. Personally, if the next Elder Scrolls has keyboard and mouse support on the next-gen Xbox, why would I bother playing it on a PC?
