With each successive generation of gaming consoles, we’ve seen some major upgrades in terms of performance along with changes to the priorities of the gaming industry as a whole. With the PS4 and Xbox One, the industry seems to be focusing more and more on online services and on keeping consumers engaged to games for longer so as to increase recurrent revenue. Final Fantasy XV’s director Hajime Tabata has shared his thoughts on the subject in an interview published in the latest version of OXM and he believes that the next generation of consoles will move towards cloud based technology.

According to Tabata-san, the gaming industry will also follow the music and film industry in moving towards streaming services. In this way, people would pay subscription fees in order to access the games that they want. Of course, such a situation probably isn’t going to work everywhere since it would require strong internet speeds, but it’s still possible that such changes may come about with soon enough. Already, game developers and publishers are trying to focus more on online services, rather than just the base game.

We’ll have to wait and see when the next generation rolls around if such changes take place. What are your thoughts on Tabata-san’s prediction? Let us know in the comments below.
