Wong makes some good points about how we keep searching for a new game system each year hoping for some type of fulfillment. I was one of those suckers that had every game system, both in home and portable. If it was described as "new and innovative" then I had to get it. Looking ahead to the future as Wong did in this article (looking past his humorous points) I can see an inevitable video game peak and plummet. Wong might not be wrong.

Leslie is right. Wong may be accurate. The game market has plummeted before, who's to say that it won't happen again. What is going to happen after the biggest competors have both released systems within the same year? We have already seen the XBox 360 arrive and the PS3 is due out in spring of this year. Will both companies keep trying to beat out eachother without damaging their reputations as we have seen with the much too early release of the XBox 360. Will customers still trust these companies after they have disappointed their players? Therefore, don't ignore what Wong is saying because he may be correct.
