Before the launch of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, their was lots of nail-biting regarding how they would perform in a world where gaming is taking place more and more on cell phones. Sure their were still tentpole franchises like Call of Duty, but it seemed more and more like the generation coming into the world was playing games on mobile devices exclusively.
Yet, it's been reported that the new black boxes have blown away their predecessors in sales, if you were to compare the figures post-launch. It's been talked about and joked about, but why is this happening?
Did people skip a generation, and if so, why? Is it children who grew up with Wii's and got deep into games that way? Why, and to who, are the new consoles selling to?
Frankly I'm excited that the consoles are selling! Console gaming has such a huge part of my life, and I plan for video games to be a sizable component in my sons life too. I can't wait to play Tekken with him some day. He's already almost one!
