Game Over

Horace Dediu analyzes the last few years of console sales and arrives at the conclusion that game consoles have been disrupted by mobile, seeing little future in the industry. I generally agree, but the late 2000s were a bit anomalous for the games industry. Analyzing console sales over a longer time period would probably reveal vast swaths of limited growth and lower sales, while still enough to support an industry. I think that’s why the console makers aren’t panicked just yet.
