Microsoft Pri0

Welcome to Microsoft Pri0: That's Microspeak for top priority, and that's the news and observations you'll find here from Seattle Times technology reporter Matt Day.

Is the Xbox “Doom”-ed?

Video gaming veteran John Romero, who designed “Doom” and other landmark games, thinks the video game console is history. In an interview with gaming site Adrenaline Vault, Romero says the future lies with new personal computers that are cheap but are sophisticated enough to handle the big games. But Nintendo’s Wii console has found its niche, he says.

Next-gen console is big but its future isn’t too bright with the emergence of cheap PC multi-core processors and the big change the PC industry will go through during the next 5 years to accommodate the new multi-core-centric hardware designs. My prediction is that the game console in the vein of the PS3 and Xbox 360 is going to either undergo a massive rethink or go away altogether. The Wii has the perfect design for a console that doesn’t pretend to be a PC and is geared more toward casual gamers than hardcore gamers.
