Well that is if you believe the guy who helped push Microsoft into the console world.
According to Alex St John, this is the last generation of consoles as we know it and we are about to see the boom of virtual consoles…
Alex has taken a flying leap straight passed digital downloads and straight into the realms of useless technology. It’s not that I don’t think the idea of a virtual console like Orb is bad, it’s just that it won’t work.
The IT world has been trying to get virtual PC’s going for years and while they exist and work now, they are hardly mainstream or even anywhere near as capable.
He claims to not be wrong often but I can tell you right now that he is completely wrong in this regard and you can bet your ass that we are going to be seeing more physical consoles in the next few years.
