ABI's analyst Sam Rosen is predicting that believes that total sales of the Xbox One, the PlayStation 4 and the Nintendo Wii U will fail to reach the numbers posted by the current generation of consoles at the five-year mark.
Why? Sam is quoted by an interview with Game Politics "Without solid titles and first-party franchises, platforms will have a difficult time finding traction. Streaming media is not enough when low-cost STBs are readily available."
Sam believes, which I have thought for some time, is that many gamers (this is already occurring) will begin to focus on mobile and social gaming options, which are cheaper and offer more variety.
How many of you are going to buy a next gen console or will you just keep what you have?
