Who cares EA, it's going to be microtransaction hell like all your other mobile games anyway.

Bah! Forecasted a while ago: Smartphones, Phablets, and Tablets will eventually take over PCs and consoles in the next 5-7 years the way the trend is going. Its natural to evolve all-in-one tech so it incorporates almost all solutions into one form factor. Some of the recent games even for Android and IShiet are somewhat decent but yeah need a few years to get close to a mid-high PC rig or XBONE/PS4. Its coming.. its inevitable..

"World of Warcraft" Tests Microtransactions, Pay to Win real money.

It's going to be standardised on all platforms. SP is getting killed off and or more focused on FTP. Just the level of today's generation of gamer. Want to buy experience and ego....so friggin sad.

Console quality, huh?
I suppose that's all right for kids.
Kids don't have money though, so I wonder what's the business model here.
PCs are still better for kids because they can upgrade individual parts whenever they get the budget needed.
For younger kids, consoles are ok - they're more [censored]-proof in general.

Bunch of horse shit from this guy. Mobile is a market and will likely still be one but for specific games and older ones via emulators (snes nes sega gamecube etc.). That's it and it's unlikely to break that mold due to input limitations.

This is a dangerous time for consoles because PC gets more and more cost effective as time goes on. Currently it's cheaper to buy or build a PC that supports your gaming habit and use a service Steam and various other websites. Notice they recently stated they will be charging the same price in the India region for titles since key website resellers have become ever more popular.

There's no reason to have a console these days as you can play your console games via the PC with a pad and have it be your HTPC at the same time. Price isn't an issue these days as it was arguable that it was back when the 360 and ps3 were new.
