The next generation of consoles is out, and it’s not nearly as big or impressive as people thought it would be before release. The systems really benefiting the most are the handheld smartphones. They have a massive install base that’s well over a billion and growing, while becoming more powerful at a rate faster than consoles. Audiences are also varied, since everyone and their mother has a smart phone these days. This is the same wide appeal that made the Nintendo Wii the greatest selling console in history.
