It's hard to say what is going to happen. The console wars are changing drastically. It's no longer about a stronger system with new games, its about online integration and downloadable content. With instant streaming services like netflix and hulu, people are using their gaming consoles more for watching television than playing games. All of the console developers would be foolish to ignore it. I think games will gradually go to 100% online distribution (like steam) and consoles will merely be multimedia boxes that can play those games in addition to handling your television needs.
