Really? I honestly don't see much overlap here, so I don't think this is happening very much. Do hardcore, AAA gamers suddenly become casual gamers? No one I know (granted, anecdotal) has suddenly put down CoD to start playing Farmville. I do play more casual games than before, but only by virtue of the fact that I don't have to pay for them and might need a distraction when I'm not at my PC. I do play less games than before (family, kids, work) but I'm still playing the same kinds of games.

Yeah, Gamasutra continues to float this idea and it never made sense to me. Mobile gaming, tablet gaming, free to play, flash... none of it comes nowhere near replacing core PC gaming or console gaming. Maybe some day it will, but not now.

It's far more likely people just aren't up for paying $60 for an average game that looks the same as games 7 years ago did.
