Spielberg: Games consoles doomed

PlayStation etc out, virtual reality in

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Steven Spielberg has suggested that games consoles will, one day, be replaced by in-home virtual reality entertainment.

Spielberg told The Guardian that while he’s keen for 3D games to be developed in the short term, he’s confident that after the glamour of such titles has worn off the future “will certainly be virtual reality”.

The director based his theory of entertainment technology evolution on the way gaming’s developed so far. Because playing games at home caused videogame arcades to go the way of the Dodo, the next natural progression will be for us to play “directly on our TV sets, bypassing all of the platforms”.

He’s confident that VR technology will be subsequently redeveloped to become “the new platform for our gaming future”.
