So a dev that works on "this technology' says "that technology" he doesn't work on is dying. I'm shocked, shocked I tells ya.
I imagine consoles are "dying" right now simply because the lifespan has been extended due to the costs associated with moving to HD assests and the economy being fudged up. People (speaking about friends both in rl and online) have either become bored and aren't wow'd anymore so they have gone primarily pc or have just found better things to spend time and money on.
It will be interesting to see what happens when people get a look at the new offerings in the flesh and not just a bunch of numbers on paper and rumors.
