The Future of Video Game Consoles

The Future of Video Game Consoles

The console market for both static and hand-held devices is going through a period of dramatic change. Hand-held consoles continue to decline, as consumers eschew the platform for mobile gaming, while the launch of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 has reinvigorated static console sales.
