Controversial games guru Denis Dyack has claimed that the future of video games will see the creation of a new, unified gaming standard. That would mean that all games consoles would run on the same platform, completely changing the way things currently work.
"Just like a DVD, just like a camera, everyone would know what those specs are," said Dyack. "We're starting to reach a perceptual threshold where the average consumer can not tell the difference between the next-generation consoles. I think this trend's going to continue.
"Next generation, you could see people agreeing on one platform. I think this model, if it occurs, will change everything."
Genius, or insanity?
Dyack says that a unified gaming standard would lead to cheaper hardware prices, as the big guns like Sony and Microsoft would be forced to pool their resources to some extent.
