One more nail in console's coffins. Intel has no reason to keep a 1080p console alive for 8yrs when there are no chips from them in it. They'll be more than happy to sell you a 4K tablet etc though to output your game to your TV over the next 8yrs. This is the building block for doing that. Of course all the others in the soc market will benefit from 4K vs. 1080p consoles too. As the GDC 2013 game developer survey shows, 60% are planning mobile stuff only 11% planning next gen games. This margin will only get worse as mobile power grows and we approach 1.5B units per year to sell games to vs. a 35mil a year console trio total. You can sell your AAA game for $10 (assuming 7mil to make it like the witcher 1 & 2) and get rich on mobile. Think about that 1.5B number of YEARLY units for a second. Only 1million need to buy a $10 game to recover 10mil which would make a hefty profit for someone like CDprojekt with witcher 1 & 2 only costing 7mil each. EA and Square Enix already sell games from $15-20. It's not hard to get 1million out of 1.5B users to pay $10-20 if your game is any good at all. Meanwhile consoles will be trying to sell you a game for $70 if rumors of the $10 increase is true...LOL. Good luck consoles. Here comes 4k with PC's ALSO pushing their gpu's to your TV via miracast etc and you on your couch with a x360 controller...ROFL. Intel would rather have you do that than buy a console, at least they sell you a cpu (and they probably hope a gpu int he next few years). Consoles will be the same until 2021+. Consoles are about to hit a res my dad's nexus 10 already tops...Almost all tablets coming this year have that res and will continue to gain in power, memory etc around them every year to output better and better stuff to TV over 1080p stuck in stone consoles. I'm sure AMD is having to work on getting their gpu to tv now also just as NV is doing with shield. In another 2yrs everything should be able to output your PC gpu to your tv via something (win8.1 just added support for miracast). All new phones/tablets have miracast now too. Still waiting for the update for nexus 10, but nexus 4 etc already had it last year.
Consoles are dead. If AMD hadn't made the mistake of spending wads of R&D on them, we'd have Volcanic Islands LAST xmas, not this xmas or at least SOMETHING new rather than the same 7970ghz for 2yrs with a few more games added as sales tank. Or at worst the drivers might have worked right all year instead of waiting for prototype etc to fix their problems (enduro still sucks too). Did I mention I hate consoles holding back my pc experiences?
