Game console fans may soon turn their smiles upside down, as Phil Eisler of Nvidia said that gaming consoles might be just a pigment of our imagination in the near future.
Heading Nvidia’s GeForce Grid Cloud Gaming Department, Eisler said that the unreleased Nintendo Wii U and the rumored PlayStation 4 and Xbox 720 might be the last gaming consoles ever to be released, since improving technology and the affordability of server costs will eventually allow streaming games to become the dominant system for gaming.
According to Eisler, “The good thing about cloud gaming is it’s going to get better every year. One of the reasons we’re investing in it is we see that there are some issues today, but they’re all solvable, and they’re all moving in the right direction. Bandwidth is going up. The cost of server rooms is going down. We’re bringing latency down.”
“The experience will just get better and better every year, to the point where I think it will become the predominant way that people play games,” Eisler added.
Nvidia has been placing a ton of money in cloud gaming. Together with Galkai, the company is convinced that it is the thing of the future.
