Are all of the writers who wrote "Is PC Gaming Dead" articles every other day going to start writing "Is Gaming Dead" articles now?

Console gaming is dead - at least for the current generation of consoles.

Market research firm IDC reported that PC shipments totalled 86.7 million units last quarter, down 0.1% from the year earlier period. So consoles & console game sales are falling 230 times faster than PC's over the same period.

So much for the "PCs are dead" bandwagon.

The interest in OUYA, the open-source Android console is therefore unsurprising. Any market with a single seller is always an overpriced monopolistic ecosystem (Microsoft's XBOX, Sony's PS3, Apple, etc.). So a console where the hardware accessories, upgrades and games can be made by or bought from anyone (like the PC) may prove an attractive prospect.
