PlayStation chairman praises Xbox and Nintendo Switch, predicts post-console gaming world

Layden said that he sees a "post-console" world where all gamers are connected. Think of it as an extension of game streaming, cross-play, and cross-progression. He said the following.

I don't want to put too fine a point on this because it might upset some of the people I work with, but I think effectively, we're looking at kind of a post-console world where you can have quality gaming experiences across a variety of technologies. Sure, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro provide what, of course, we think is the best gaming experience, but the other consoles out there, be it Nintendo Switch, Xbox One X, or tablets, or phones — there are great experiences across all these. What we need to do is recognize all that. We're not little gaming ghettos that are not federated or aligned at all. We're all part of the same gaming community, we just come at it through different doorways. I think the future will be an extension of that metaphor. Your platform is not your hideaway. It's just your doorway to all these other gamer folk.

Figured this was coming, but it seems like a good idea at first glance. We will have to see how the future plays out.

Still think this is one of the coolest moments in any gameshow/awards show.

And now come to think of it I wonder if Reggie retiring had anything to do with it happening last year.

Doing anyone outside of Nintendo knew back then.

But then it might not be the last time we see MS and Nintendo share a stage....
