According to Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun, consoles are not the best gaming platform anymore. He is praising PC gaming which according to him has overtaken console gaming, especially in emerging markets.
“My sense is that the game console platform is not likely to enjoy the hay days when it was really unambiguously the only and the best game platform to enjoy games. It’s just not true anymore. There are just too many other ways to enjoy games.
The PC has become the world’s largest game platform. China, the developing countries around the world, PC is a piece of platform they already own. They can upgrade it two, three, four times without having to change the basic platform. So the total of cost of ownership of a game PC is quite attractive,” Jen-Hsun said during the company’s earnings call.
The question is if this is actually true or does it have to do something with the fact that AMD is providing the processor for both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 which are both selling in record numbers.
