    next-gen will fail if not digital, says code master co-founder

    Post by Selectstart on Fri Jul 06, 2012 4:32 pm

    Current mobile gaming exec David Darling says consoles have become dinosaurs, bound for extinction unless they embrace a digital-only ecosystem.

    Codemasters cofounder David Darling believes consoles must embrace a digital-only future or face extinction. Now heading up British mobile gaming firm Kwalee, Darling posted a blog entry to the company's site, offering a prediction of where the industry will stand in the future.
    Consoles are going to die if they don't change, Darling says.

    Consoles are going to die if they don't change, Darling says.

    "Sony and Microsoft cannot let the retailers dictate game prices going forwards if they want to break free from the current over-priced model," he said. "Their next consoles, PlayStation 4 and Xbox 720, need to be digital only, or they will fail."

    Darling sung the praises of digital distribution, saying this delivery model gives publishers access to a "worldwide marketplace," while removing what can be an "expensive chain of production and distribution" that is required for boxed games.

    "If hardware manufacturers such as Sony and Microsoft do not manage this transition soon, they will be overtaken and left behind by companies who are embracing digital distribution wholly and completely," he said. "Companies like Apple and Google are not tied to brick and mortar retailers with shackles and are not being held back by them."

    Later in his blog post, Darling compared consoles to dinosaurs, saying these systems are "heading for extinction as their natural habitat begins to change." He called consoles "ancient beasts" and praised the work of Facebook, Steam, and Apple's App store as places where innovative properties can thrive.

    "There is an immense amount of innovation on the App Store compared to recent console games," he said. "Big sellers on console like FIFA and Call of Duty change very little each year, whereas many apps are exploring entirely new realms of gameplay."

    Lastly, Darling said another advantage that comes with digital distribution is that games become a service rather than a product. He explained that after a digitally distributed game has launched, the developer has immediate access to player feedback, which can be used to make "improvements."

    "On the current consoles this process is slowed by the need for hardware manufacturers to approve each game and they also charge developers a fee for each update they create," he said.

    pero if ani ang destination sa game retribution then shutdown jud ang internet kung sabay sabay mag download ang millions of gamers sa ilang games. well ako ra masulti, open ko for changes pero kung ingani kasayo nga dili pa ingana ka gwapo ang connection kay layo pa jud kaayo. gamers buy game also para naay ma display sa ilang collection.. walay collector nga ga collect ug bagay nga dili niya magunitan.. hehe

    I'm giving up consoles if wla nay hard media para niya. They may say that next gen will fail if not digital, but can you see the market being ripe to be all-digital? Mura mn og nkalimot na sila mo-consider kung unsa ag state sa current market if willing ba gyud ta 100% mag-ingana. Hago gyud kaayo mg-download og next-gen nga games.

    They may say they go for the cloud-based option pero gisuwayan na pod naho ang GaiKai. wa jud ko layhi kay min requirement niya dapat 3mbps imo internet. mahal kaayo nang ingana so useless lang gihapon.. den I know bsag mga dagkong syudad sa east coast prticularly NY, maot kasagaran providers, subscription types og kalidad sa ilang signal.

    tama! liba man kaayo ng digital copy unya $10 lng and difference sa retail price. mas dako man gud ang kita sa digital kay wala nay gasto sa pag manufacture, shipping, mark up sa distributors, etc.

    sugot ko digital only pero ang pricing kay pareho sa steam.
