HardwareHell has published an article on the history and future of computers and gaming, specifically x86 gaming. It covers much more than just the current market, so read on to see if they think this next generation of consoles will put a bigger dent in the industry than previous generations have.
"Since PCs are used for gaming, and consoles are getting more and more PC-like abilities, it is
likely that this may end up as a battle between the two different approaches to computer design,
with each company representing a design approach. Who will win? Who knows, but one thing is for
sure, lessons will be learned by this, either by IBM who will realize it took a wrong bet on a
route that's been hyped by theory and not proven in real life, or by Intel who will realize that
not being innovative enough means not surviving in the long term."
