Square Enix Believes Consoles Will Die

Yochi Wada, chief of Square, is marking the death of physical media and believes that consoles will soon follow. Siting that console hardware will disappear and streaming via the net will be the future of gaming. He goes on to suggest the propagation of social and browser-based gaming will come to the forefront and gaming in places like Asia will expand dramatically due to the lack of consoles there.

Once again, big business is pointing in the direction of gaming rental via the web. The days of owning your game and more importantly not having to continually pay to play it, is coming to an end.
